Servings: 12 Cupcakes


Cost per serving $0.50 view details
  • 8 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into pieces at room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
  • 12 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups


  1. Preheat oven to 175°C (350°F). Line a standard size muffin tin with cupcake liners. Melt the chocolate and butter by placing in a large heatproof bowl or a double boiler, and setting over a pan of simmering water. Stir occasionally just until melted, it takes about 5 minutes.
  2. Remove bowl from heat. Whisk in sugar and salt until mixture is smooth; whisk in eggs to combine. Gently whisk in flour and cocoa, just until smooth (do not overmix).
  3. Spoon 1 heaping tablespoon of batter into each cup. Place 1 peanut butter cup on top, gently pressing into the batter. Top with 2 more tablespoons of batter, covering the peanut butter cup completely.
  4. Bake for about 35 minutes, rotating halfway through, and until a cake tester inserted halfway in centers (above peanut butter cup) comes out with a few moist crumbs attached. Cool on wire rack. Cupcakes can be stored up to 3 days in an airtight container at room temperature.
