Peanut Butter Cups Cupcakes

I had a couple of packages of Reece's Peanut Butter Cups and wanted to use them before they expired. I made these for a co-worker for her birthday. Everyone loved them!

  2. While cupcakes are baking, mix the peanut butter and whipped frosting together. Chop up the remaining Reece's Peanut Butter cups.
  3. Once the cupcakes cool, frost and place chopped Reece's on top.
