Reeses Pieces Cupcakes

Check out my updated recipe: Reese's Pieces Cupcakes, Take 2

I'm back! And you can call me Mrs. Wager!!!! Or as I like to say Mrs. S. Wager (aka: Swager!). I cant believe that 3 1/2 wonderful years of dating, two of which we were engaged all came by so fast! The day was stressful, beautiful, fun and amazing all rolled up into one day that just flew by! Ill post pictures of the mehndi night and wedding in under the About Me part of my blogsoon enough!
So my mehndi night was also my bridal shower and I got two wonderful gifts both involving cupcakes (of course my friends and family know me so well). I got a cupcake caddy that holds up to 24 cupcakes (so I no longer need two carriers) and my other present was a cupcake tree to hold cupcakes at parties!!!

Well the first thing that I wanted to do when I came back (besides spend blissful moments with my new hubby) was to first update my blog by baking something because you all have been so patient with me as I've been so busy and posted nothing! And the other, was to bake cupcakes so I could use my two new toys :)!!! Where else did I go to accomplish these things then Pinterest to see what new delicious recipe I would like to try. As I scrolled through I found these Reeses Pieces Cupcakes. I must have an affinity towards Reeses (which is new to me, because I really am not a big Reese's Fan...unless it comes in a cupcake, I guess)- because this is my second cupcake with Reeses in it. But they were just too cute and too yummy looking to resist. I would like to thank the people who came up with the recipe but when I clicked on the link it did not take me anywhere. So I figured I would be bold and brave, as Mrs. Wager ;) and attempt to figure out the recipe and share. Well it turned out pretty good: (and ok, I might have gone crazy with the camera- I was just too excited)

See the little Reeses Pieces

Chocolate Buttercream Frosting with a hint of Peanut Butter

The Reeses Pieces candy bits kinda melts in the batter as it cooks

The peanut butter of the Reeses Pieces collects at the bottom for some of the cupcakes. Its delicious

Two tiered cupcake caddy! Thank you to my lovely cousin Kaveetha

Different Angle

Well now that we've seen a million pictures. I do have to thank Kaveetha, my cousin and Tracy, one of my closest friends. Ive always wanted these but have never been bold enough to splurge on this. So now on to the cupcake recipe.

For the Love of Dessert Original Recipe

Preheat the oven to 350F degrees

One box of yellow cake mix
3 eggs
1/2 c. of vegetable oil
1 c. of buttermilk
1 bag of Reeses Pieces

2 sticks of butter (softened)
4c of powdered sugar - you may need to add more to get the consistency you like
1 c. of cocoa powder (Hershey's Special Dark)
1 Tblsp. of peanut butter


Mix the yellow cake mix, eggs, vegetable oil, and buttermilk. Once mixed well add in the Reeses Pieces (make sure to only add these once the oven is at the right temperature and your ready to put the batter in the cupcake liners because they dies may bleed). Using an ice cream scoop, take one scoop and  place into cupcake liners. This should make the perfect cupcake size. Place in oven and bake for 18-22 minutes. My cupcakes were ready at right about 19 minutes.

Mix butter until creamy. Add in powdered sugar and cocoa powdered (slowly). Finally add peanut butter. Take each cupcake (which should be cooled) and pipe our your frosting using any tip you like :) Its pretty clear that I like the open star tip :) Always sticking to the classic. The hubby (haha..still so fun to say it)- seemed to really enjoy them so hopefully you do too!
