Moist and Fudgy Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes

These made-from-scratch bakery-style Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes (from a secret bakery recipe) are extra moist, flavorful and surprisingly easy to make! This recipe starts with my Moist and Fudgy Chocolate Cupcakes. Frost them with the creamiest and lightest Peanut Butter Buttercream and you will have the perfect match.

This is my latest featured Mix and Match Recipe. That means the made-from-scratch cake and buttercream are separate recipes through the links at the bottom of this page. Mix and Match recipes are meant to provide short-and-sweet small-batch cake, cupcake, frosting and filling recipes. You can get creative with your flavor combinations just like we did at Amycakes Bakery!

For an extra chocolatey version of these peanut butter cup cupcakes, fill them with easy fudgy chocolate ganache for a “Peanut Butter Fudge” cupcake.

I hope you enjoy these Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes! Let me know what you think in the comment section below!

Thanks for Reading. ❤️
