Hershey’s Halloween – Reese’s Cupcake Recipe

Halloween is all about the candy! I recently received a huge box of candy from Hershey’s, full of Halloween goodies! The box contained Rolos, Halloween Kit Kats, Caramel Apple Lollipops, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, York Peppermint Patties, Hershey’s Milk Chocolate, Kisses and more.

Hershey’s asked me to make a Halloween recipe or craft and I was happy to oblige. I had to work fast though, because my husband and kids found the candy and it started disappearing quickly!  So I didn’t go for anything complicated, and stuck to a tried and true simple recipe. I made some Halloween Cupcakes with the Mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Peanut Butter Cups are a huge favorite for all my kids, so they gobbled up these cupcakes.

I made a basic yellow cake and topped it off with my family’s favorite chocolate cream cheese frosting and a peanut butter cup.

  1. I can definitely tell you that it is very difficult to find people right now who can help in terms of mental health rehabilitation. Luckily I have already been able to find professionals and experts here https://www.linkedin.com/company/calmerry . I was able to recover so quickly and I am grateful to them for that. I think everyone should visit them. It certainly wouldn’t be unnecessary for anyone. Good luck and success!
