Peanut Butter Surprise Muffins Recipe

Reese's Peanut Butter Cups are the hidden surprise in these fun little muffins from Joan Dobry of Hardy, Arkansas. "They are wonderful warm from the oven, when the chocolaty surprise is smooth and creamy," she says. "And just about everyone loves the combination of chocolate and peanut butter."
