I see all those cute cupcakes everyone else makes around blogland and got jealous.  One day I decided to end all of that.

It was a toss up between chocolate peanut butter cup and key lime.  Peanut butter cup won out because then I didn't need to walk to the grocery store, I had pretty much everything I needed at home!

I found this recipe at Hoosier Homemade and it's definitely a keeper!!  

I pretty much followed this recipe here, but didn't have reese cups on hand.  So what I did instead was make a little bit of peanut butter "dough" and threw in pinches of that, and a handful of chocolate chips.  The dough I created was just some sugar, flour and peanut butter, but had I had this on hand, the dough would have been graham crumbs, icing sugar, and peanut butter, this is much more like the inside of a reese cup!

I found that after the 15 minutes of recommended baking time, my cupcakes weren't done.  So I put them in for another 4 minutes, I think, still not done, and then another 3? and then maybe another 1 or 2. Whatever it was, it was just a bit too long.  They're not as moist as I would have liked, and looking at the recipe, I attribute it to over baking.

For the frosting, I only had half the icing sugar, so I halved everything.  It was too dough-y, so I added some more butter.  Mmmmm.  lol  

Then, I used a freezer bag to pipe the frosting on the cupcakes (once they'd cooled!)

They're delicious!!
