Ingredients

For the Cupcakes:

  • 1 cup butter (unsalted)
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 egg yolks (room temperature)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup greek yogurt
  • 4 egg whites (room temperature)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt

For the Delicate Buttercream Frosting:

  • 1 cup butter (room temperature)
  • 5 cups icing sugar (sifted)
  • milk or cream (for thinning)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 jar of Reese Chocolate Peanut Butter Spread

Instructions

For the Cupcakes:

  • Preheat oven to 350º F, and line muffin tin with liners.
  • Sift flour with baking powder and salt into a bowl.
  • In another bowl, cream butter and sugar.
  • Beat in eggs yolks (one at a time) into the butter/sugar mixture.
  • Add vanilla.
  • Add the yogurt (in 2 parts) and flour mixture (in 3 parts) to the butter/sugar mixture. Be sure to begin and end with flour.
  • In another bowl, beat egg whites until stiff.
  • Gently fold the egg whites into the batter.
  • Fill muffin cups 2/3 full with batter.
  • Bake for 20 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, let rest for a couple of minutes and take cupcakes out of the muffin tin and place on a cooling rack.

With the cooled cupcakes:

  • Scoop out the middle of each cupcake. Keep the piece to reuse. I just used a knife an carved out a piece from the middle of each one.
  • Spoon in some of the peanut butter chocolate spread into each of the cupcakes.
  • Replace the piece of cupcake on top of the chocolate spread.

For the Frosting:

  • Using a mixer (hand held or stand) in a bowl, cream the butter and icing sugar. 
  • Add in the salt and blend well.
  • Thin the mixture with a bit of milk or cream until you reach your desired frosting consistency. Place frosting in a piping bag with your choice of decorating tip.
  • Place a dollop of the peanut butter chocolate spread on the top of each cupcake.
  • Pipe frosting around the chocolate spread.
  • ENJOY!!
