Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Posted on

Peanut Butter Cupcakes!!!!!!Moist cupcakes filled with a creamy peanut butter cup and topped with peanut butter cream icing and a mini peanut butter cookie.  This is a peanut butter lover’s dream come true!

I was determined to get mini peanut butter cups into the center of these cupcakes.  I did some of them plain, and tossed some in flour 1st and all of them sank to the bottom.  Sad me.  I think the only alternative is to either eat them on the bottom (still yummy!!) or invest in one of those fun little pans that hold candy in the middle.  Have you seen them?  Click here if you want to check them out.  Now that I’m in the middle of the Navajo Nation, I seriously doubt I will be coming across one- lol!  Maybe I will order one once I have an address to send it to!!

My thoughts:  YUM!  These are perfect if you love peanut butter.  I love the fudgy layer of melted frosting on the top– when I shared these with friends they all loved that part.  You could dip cupcakes into all sorts of melted frostings– so many flavor possibilities!!!! FUN!!!!   I hope you really enjoy these!!! ~r

Flip Flop Cookies~ a Recipe Revisited!

I’m excited to be back for day #2 of our walk down memory lane!  Today’s treat just had to make the list of fun and colorful recipes to revisit.  It’s not only fun and colorful, but the perfect summer treat…

Flip Flop RR card

This recipe was originally published during my first summer of blogging, on June 11, 2011.  It is particularly memorable for me because it was my first photo published on Foodgawker.  If you even knew how hard I was trying at the time to get a photo accepted on that site….oh my.  I’m very competitive and I had about 60 photos rejected before this one.  I was jumping up and down for joy!  I took this photo at my friends Tom and Tina’s house at the lake.  I knew the lighting was perfect that day and I pulled my little point and shoot out to snap some photos.  Tom suggested I try his higher-end camera and Tina popped that pretty orange flower in the background and I learned two things:  1.Staging food is a must in photography and  2. I needed a better camera.

Since that date I’ve had 55 photos accepted on Foodgawker and SO many rejected.  It has been so good for me to have outside judgement on my photography though.  It is making me better.  Will today’s photo be accepted?  I think not.  I’m not happy with the exposure in any of the pictures, but we will see!

These are white chocolate dipped Nutter Butter cookies (in case you were wondering!)  Originally dipped in rainbow colors, these are dipped in patriotic red, white and blue and garnished with a little star sprinkle.  Serving them on brown sugar gives them a beach feel.  These are a perfect summer treat and really easy to make.
