Peanut Butter muffins with little bitty Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups mixed in…how can you go wrong with these?

PEANUT BUTTER MUFFINS WITH MINI REESE’S CUPS from Cosmopolitan Cornbread

I make these muffins exactly the same as my Nutella Chocolate Chip ones, with a couple substitutions. Mini Reese’s for the chocolate chips, vanilla for the hazelnut extract, and peanut butter for the Nutella. Everything is else is the same, and measurements are the same as well.

  1. These muffins are *beautiful*! Would it be possible to swap out the peanut butter for Nutella? I have a friend who’s allergic to peanuts

  2. Conni, these muffins are ah-may-zing! Waking up wouldn't be such a drag if I had chocolate and peanut butter to wake up to. I love these!
