  • 1 cup of creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup of semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips

❗ FAQs

How do you store cupcakes?

Keep the peanut butter cupcakes in an airtight container at room temperature. They will last 2-3 days.

Additionally, you can freeze the cupcakes if you want to. They should be wrapped with plastic wrap and then put them inside of a food storage container. They will last in the freezer for up to 2-3 months. Defrost on the counter and enjoy!

Can I use different candy?

Sure! We enjoy the flavor of the Reese’s candy, but you could use any kind that you want. Butterfinger would be really good, but really anything you like would work. Let us know what your favorite is!
