Updated: Jul 21, 2019


  • Two 1/4 cups yogurt

  • 2 sticks of butter, room temperature

  • 1-cup sugar

  • 1/2 cup soy or almond milk

  • 2-cups unbleached all purpose flour

  • 1-tablespoon vanilla extract

  • 3-tablespoons canola oil

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted

  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder

  • 1/2 cup all-natural organic peanut butter

  • Justin's Mini Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups (1 package)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (F). Line a 12-cupcake pan with cupcake papers. In a medium sized bowl, light beat the yogurt, butter, and sugar together until light and fluffy.

  2. Add milk, flour, vanilla, oil, and baking soda. Stir to combine. Beat with an electric mixer for 2-minutes, until light and creamy.

  3. Melt the 1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips in the microwave (about 30 seconds). Add melted chocolate, cocoa powder, and peanut butter into mixture and stir to combine.

  4. Divide the batter among the 12-liners in your prepared pan, filling each cup 3/4 of the way. (Additional batter can make additional cupcakes!) Bake for 22 minutes, or until it passes the toothpick test (insert toothpick in the center and it comes out clean). Allow for the cupcakes to cool completely before decorating.

  5. Once the cupcakes are cooled, use a knife to carve out a small hole in the center of each cupcake. Fill each hole with an unwrapped peanut butter cup.
