Review: Peanut Butter Reece's Cupcakes by @yumsandcrumbs

As some of you may know through the few brief tweets we've made, I had met up with an old friend from college, who I've managed to convince to make a blog and YouTube channel (well she did want to do it, but I convinced her to do it sooner than later) and offered to help her start off.

She is such a talented baker, as you can see above, she had kindly made me some peanut butter Reece's cupcakes for me to try out! She is only a little start up business, which I think has big potential, as well as her creating a blog and YouTube account on top of it.

Her name is Rio and I will list her NEW social media links below, as she will be doing baking related stuff, she is also a mother of two, so she also wants to blog and vlog about her lifestyle and motherhood.

So back to the cupcakes, if you have a big sweet tooth, you will defiantly enjoy these. If you are a big Reece's fan, you will most definitely LOVE these - as James isn't here, there was plenty left over from being full of eating just one! So I gave three away to family members, who enjoyed it so much and even said they would pay for these in the shop! So moist and so full of flavour, love love love it and I can't wait to eat more and hopefully make some of our own at some point.

They are all chocolate based cake, with homemade Reece's filling in the middle, peanut butter buttercream on top with chocolate drizzle and crushed peanuts - and even other one had a half of a Reece's piece.

Hopefully, you will be seeing more of her and her stuff here on our blog as we will be planning future collaborations. Please do follow her accounts and show her your support (although there is currently now content on her new accounts)

  1. These look amazing!! Rio sounds really cool and I look forward to seeing her vlogs and blog etc :) I use to bake from home as a little business but in my tiny kitchen and the time it took when ai was fully booked I was swamped and gad to give up so I admire those who can do it and work ot around their lifestyle :) massive reeses fan and now I'm jealous that I don't have any! Www.mylifeinrosetintedglasses.wordpress.com

    1. They were sooo good! OMG a very chocolatey party in my mouth!
      She is lovely and her kids are adorable, hopefully we'll get some content our for her soon! Oh wow, so many talented bakers out there - I like to try, but I'm not so great at presentation haha

      Imagine I've had 3 to myself, not all on the same day of course! ;)

      Thank you for reading and commenting ☺️💓

  2. Saw those cupcakes on your Instagram and immediately had to come and find out where you got them from. I'm a sucker for a cupcake, Josh doesn't really like cake though so whenever we make them he just eats the icing off the top!
    It's so nice of you guys to encourage your friend to make a blog and YT - it was a friend of mines idea for us to make a blog and I'm so glad she gave us that nudge now.

    1. They just look so good don't they? And trust me they taste even better than they look!
      I enjoy cupcakes but James LOVES them, so he must be gutted right now! Haha

      Oh thank you, we enjoy doing ourselves and we have such a lovely community of bloggers and I knew it would be a great thing for her to get herself more out there! And we're glad your friend have you a nudge because your blog is amazing!

      Thank you for reading and commenting! ☺️💓

  3. Hello hello there!!!! 8-)

    These look amazing but I do not like Peanut Butter!!! =( Could I make them without PB!?
    It is world chocolate day today so I feel it would only be right to bake something chocolate related!!! 8-)

    Thanks for the giveaway Jess and James it really means a lot! I am so pleased I found your blog because I love food and am always looking for inspiration as to what to cook etc! But I don't need much persuasion to bake a cake! hehe!

    Loving your work

    1. Oh that's a shame, yes I'm sure you could make these without and use an alternative, like Oreos maybe?

      What kind of foodies are we, we didn't know it was world chocolate day! Shall use this to our advantage now!

      Thank you for your lovely comment! Food is life! Thank you for reading and commenting! ☺️💓
