Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup REESE'S Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg(s)
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour

  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup milk

Directions

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Line small muffin cups (1-3/4 inches in diameter) with paper bake cups.

2. Beat peanut butter, shortening, brown sugar and vanilla in medium bowl on medium speed of electric mixer until creamy. Add egg; beat well. Stir together flour, baking powder and salt; add alternately with milk to peanut butter mixture, beating until well blended. Fill muffin cups 3/4 full with batter; lightly press one mini peanut butter cup into center of each batter-filled muffin cup, leaving chocolate partially uncovered by batter.

Frost with PEANUT BUTTER CREME FROSTING. Garnish each frosted minicake with mini peanut butter cup or mini peanut butter cup half. About 3 dozen minicakes.
