Reeses Peanut butter cup cupcake: When chocolate and peanut butter live happily ever after !

I think that cupcake is one of my passion, who can resist it (both making it and eating it, hehe) and the ingredient for this cupcake makes me really want to try it ^^.


 Because it contains "Reeses Peanut buttercup",  that has both my beloved chocolate and my dearest peanut butter, haha.
The first time that I ate the "Reeses Peanut buttercup", I think "Oh!, it's great, a little cup of milk chocolate with a smooth peanut butter inside, yummy!!!" It's the answer to my craziness for both chocolate and peanut butter.
I got the recipe from ................. that I had it almost a year and still didn't have a chance to try the recipe until today.
Well, what can go wrong? When the recipe that I choose is only the cupcake, haha. Anyway the frosting for this cupcake is very good (but I reduce the sugar amount to suit my taste).
So, I hope you still in love with cupcake, ^^, the basic cake that I can't resist it, and I know it easy to fall in love with it.
