Total Time 20 minutes

White Chocolate Reese's Cups are the inspiration for these Cupcakes. White chocolate cupcakes topped with a creamy Peanut Butter Frosting!

Ingredients

For the Cupcakes:

  • 5 egg whites, room temperature
  • ¾ cup whole milk, divided
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 3.5oz white chocolate bar, melted (I used Green & Blacks)
  • 2 ½ cup cake flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp kosher salt

For the White Chocolate Frosting:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cup powdered sugar
  • 3.5oz white chocolate bar, melted
  • 1 ½ Tbsp whole milk

For the Peanut butter Frosting:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cup powdered sugar
  • ⅓ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 ½ Tbsp whole milk

Instructions

  1. For the cake, whisk together the egg whites, and ¼ cup of the milk in small bowl until slightly combined. Set aside.
  2. In mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar for 2 minutes on medium. Add in dry ingredients and mix until combined. Slowly in a steady stream add in the egg white mixture. Beat in remaining milk and melted white chocolate bar.
  3. Fill cupcake liners half full with batter and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes. Remove and cool in pan 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack. Cool completely before frosting.
  4. For the frosting, beat butter 5 minutes until it becomes pale in color. Add sugar, melted white chocolate and whole milk. Beat an additional 5 minutes until fluffy. Fill a disposable pastry bag with frosting (no tip on the end). Set aside.
  5. For PB frosing, beat butter 5 minutes until pale in color. Add sugar, peanut butter and whole milk. Beat an additional 3-5 minutes until fluffy. Fill a disposable pastry bag with frosting (no tip on end).
  6. Take a LARGE pastry bag and add both types of frosting, making sure the ends of each bag go down to the bottom. Using a 6S tip, pipe onto cupcakes. The peanut butter frosting is very light, so it's hard to see the swirl. That's okay, you will taste it!!
