Fans of the iconic Reese's peanut butter cup will love Reese's cupcakes.

The best-known brand of peanut butter cup in America—and quite possibly the world—is back at it again.

Reese’s has a knack for offering inventive ways to satisfy peanut butter-and-chocolate cravings. They’ve sold one-pound versions of their peanut butter cups, a Take 5 bar that incorporates the brand’s classic peanut butter and an ice cream cake filled with peanut butter, among other things.

Now they’ve teamed up with Mrs. Freshley’s to bring us our newest obsession: Reese’s cupcakes.

What’s in Each Cupcake?

Creamy and dreamy, these cupcakes will satisfy even the brand’s biggest fan. They’re filled with that classic Reese’s peanut butter we all know and love, while the cake itself is chocolate-flavored (get it? It’s like a Reese’s cup!). The whole thing is frosted with peanut butter icing, and brown, orange and yellow sprinkles add Reese’s pieces-inspired pop of color. There are 480 calories in a two-cupcake pack, meaning one cake clocks in at 240 calories.

If you’re having trouble finding a way to pick up this latest delicious offering from Reese’s, try making your own desserts inspired by those beloved peanut butter cups. Bake a Reese’s snack cake, make your own homemade peanut butter cups or even indulge in a peanut butter cup cheesecake.

Where Can I Find Them?

The news of these delightful desserts broke last year at the National Association of Convenience Stores, so we’ve had to wait a little while to pluck them off of store shelves. Thankfully, 2020 brought them to Mrs. Freshley’s retailers, which include Walmart, Sam’s Club and Amazon.

The cupcakes are usually sold in packs of two, although Sam’s Club offers them in a 12-pack combination with another offering from Mrs. Freshley’s: Hershey’s Triple Chocolate Cakes. Whichever retailer you choose, we know you’re in for a peanut-buttery treat.
