Halloween Monster Cupcakes

These delicious lil monsters are a spin off one of my personal favorites – Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.  Believe me, these double chocolate chip peanut butter cupcakes will blow your mind!  I mean, come on now, chocolate and peanut butter?  Can’t go wrong with that <3.

You can find the chocolate cupcake recipe here.

These cupcakes are so fun, festive, and yummy.  I decorated mine with some chocolate chunks, marshmallows, and candy corn.
