Love is in the air! And there’s no better couple than peanut butter and chocolate! These Reese’s Peanut Butter Cupcakes have dreamy peanut butter frosting and rich chocolate cake. Make these for your man this Valentine’s Day and he’ll probably drop to one knee and propose. Or if you’re already married he may forget and propose again!
But in all seriousness, when I need to impress a boy I pray he’s not allergic to peanut butter and I whip up a batch of chocolate peanut butter cupcakes! Top them off with a Reese’s Cup and he’s mine! I may or may not have fed these cupcakes to a boy I went out with a few weeks ago…
I get a lot of emails from people wanting to know about my food photos so I love posting about it! Here’s a little pull-back shot of my set up. Sometimes there’s more going on in the shot but this one was just so simple. The cupcakes and the cutting board was all it took to get the perfect shot! I have a few posts on food photography if you want to learn more!
Are you drooling yet?
If you want a cake mix version…. 1 box devil’s food cake mix, 3 eggs, 1/2 C. melted butter, 2/3 C. sour cream, 1/2 C. milk. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
The trick to epic peanut butter frosting? The vanilla extract!!
Tabasco Valentine! I just posted about this on my instagram page and people wanted to make their own, so here you go! I just put two dots of hot glue on the right and left corner and covered up the regular label. I printed mine at Costco though so it was on photo paper.
Just copy the image below and put a bunch into a work document to print. Depending on which size of Tasbasco you use, you’ll need to adjust the size!
