These are devil's food cupcakes with reese's peanut butter cup ganache buttercream! There aren't even words to describe how delicious the frosting is! I might have ate all the leftover frosting and licked the bowl clean! :) The frosting recipe is from one of my absolutely favorite blogs oh, just put a cupcake in it.

Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Ganache Buttercream
24 oz chopped up mini reese's peanut butter cups1 ½ cups cream
2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
1 - 2 cups powdered sugar sifted.
Night before or earlier in day, put chopped up candy in heatproof bowl. In a small saucepan heat cream to simmer, pour over candy. Let sit for a few minutes, then stir until chocolate is incorporated. You will have peanut butter lumps...that is a desirable trait! Put in fridge and let firm up overnight.

Cream butter and 2 cups ganache in mixer until well blended. Add 1 cup of sugar and blend well. If frosting is too soft, add some more sugar...remember it's sweet though. Careful not to over beat or it will get grainy. This frosting is soft and silky!

After adding the cream to the chopped peanut butter cups, but before stirring!

Look at those yummy chunks of peanut butter!! Time to put in the refrigerator to get firm!
