I have made cupcakes like this , but not with the cake mix. I used brownie mix instead but used 1 extra egg. I cut the large reese cups in half & put them in the batter. Baked them. To frost, I made peanut butter buttercream icing! Then put a 1/4 reese cup on top. I am definitely going to try this recipe too!

I made the frosting to use on a chocolate cake (instead of cupcake), it was delicious! If you like peanut butter cups, you'll love these!
