Reeses Surprise Cupcakes

These cupcakes are one of my new favorites! I came up with the idea by myself, although I know it's not the first of it's kind. I didn' t use any specific recipes. The cupcake is Betty Crocker Butter Yellow cake mix. I added some peanut butter into the cake batter until it had the desired peanut buttery flavor. I spooned the batter into the cupcake pan about half full. I then went through and pushed the mini reeses peanut butter cup in, top down. I covered the reeses with a small spoonful of batter and put them to bake. The topping is a chocolate ganache. I used 3/4 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream. For the garnish, I cut the tops of the mini reeses off and turned it upside down and placed it in the middle of the cupcake. These cupcakes turned out even better than I had imagined. :)
