My friend Julie from Jam's Corner made some delicious looking cupcakes, Reese's Surprise Mini Cupcakes. Now what is better than Chocolate and Peanut Butter in a cupcake, a mini one at that; you can just pop that in your mouth for a delightful treat. So I wanted to make these cupcakes but with my healthy ingredients. Well I forgot to pick up some Reese Cups when I went grocery shopping, so I had to compromise. So I had peanut butter and chocolate chips so I just made due with those extra ingredients. These mini cupcakes came out GOOD! and I used the recipe Julie did, but just used my healthy ingredients. So without further ado.
