Reese's Peanut Butter Easter Cupcakes

Monday, March 30, 2015

Reese's peanut butter cups are seriously my guilty pleasure. And so for Easter this year I seriously could not pass up the opportunity of creating something super yummy, super easy and of course peanut butter themed! In my opinion Easter is a very lazy festivity where all I want to do is sit around in my pjs and stuff my face with chocolate eggs. For this recipe I genuinely just used a cake mixture rather than bake from scratch as I usually would but hey it's Easter, so it's okay to be lazy right?! Besides these turned out very impressive (even if I do say so myself!) and most importantly super yummy!

What You Will Need:

  • 1 bag of Reese's miniatures.
  • Cake Mixture
  • Toppings of your choice.
  • Yellow Food Colouring
  • Butter
  • Icing Sugar (550g)
  • Cupcake Cases
  • Piping Icing Bag
  • Milk

How to Make:

  • Pre-heat your oven to Gas Mark 5.
  • Mix your cake batter with 1 teaspoon of butter, 1 egg and water. Stir well until you are left with a runny consistency.
  • Add in a handful of Reese's minis (I chosen enough to have 2 in each cake!)
  • Place into your cupcake cases and leave to bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
  • Whilst your cakes are in the oven, begin to make the buttercream. Mix well 550g of icing sugar, 75g of butter and 4 tablespoons of milk. 
  • Once you have reached your desirable consistency, add 2 small drops of food colouring to the mixture. Add extra if you desire a more intense colour.
  • Once your cakes are cooked and have been left to cool for 10 minutes. Place your buttercream icing into an icing bag and begin to swirl onto your cake. 
  • To finish, decorate with whichever toppings you prefer. I chosen to use Reese's minis of course, chocolate chips, hundreds and thousands, crushed yellow and green candy and these super cute easter candies with pictures to garnish. 
  • Now, eat and enjoy!
These are genuinely the nicest things I've ever tasted, I won't lie!!

I really hope you enjoyed this week's post lovelies! There may be an extra recipe post uploaded on the earlier day of Friday so get excited for that! If you re-create this recipe please let me know, I would love to see how your cakes turned out. Until next time...

What sweet treat is your guilty pleasure?
