Reese's Cupcakes

For my MIL's birthday, I asked her if she wanted chocolatey or fruity?  She voted chocolate.  I then asked her if she liked Butterfingers or Reese's more? Reese's.  And thus became this year's birthday cupcakes!

I found Gluten-Free Chocolate cake recipe found here and it did not disappoint.  I'm still using the Namaste Perfect Flour Blend that my Costco sells, but eventually I need to work on mixing up my own blend. 

I topped these with the peanut butter buttercream and some chopped Reese's.  My goodness.  Talk about delicious and rich!

These are the perfect blend of a not too sweet cake and yummy peanut butter goodness on top.


For the GF Chocolate Cake Recipe.

Peanut Butter Butter Cream
2 sticks butter, softened
16 oz Powdered sugar
1 tbsp Vanilla
2-3 tbsp milk
2/3 cup peanut butter

Whip the butter and peanut butter until smooth and creamy.  Gradually add in powdered sugar.  Once all of the powdered sugar is incorporated, add in vanilla and a tablespoon of milk at a time until frosting is desired consistency.

Frost cupcakes and top with chopped Reese's.
