Day 211 – Fluffernutter Cupcakes

27 Feb

I will never get enough of Marshmallow Fluff.  I love it.  It makes me happy.  Always has.  Probably always will.  So, when I saw these Fluffernutter Cupcakes (recipe below from Not Your Ordinary Recipes), I just knew I had to try them!  But first, check out today’s tip video!

Now, enjoy these cupcakes!

The cupcakes have a muffin-like consistency. And they are sugary. Like, similar to eating a Peep sugary. Which, I don’t mind, cause I love Peeps. I was just surprised.

Note: The baker originally made the cupcakes with mini marshmallows, but said she’d rather make them with large ones, so I tried both. I personally preferred the ones with minis.

Peanut-Butter-Frosting

The frosting is very, very thick. It’s pipeable, it’s just thick. It tastes like sweet peanut butter. That’s about it. Not much butter in there, so you really just get the honest-to-goodness peanut butter flavor.

The sweetness of the frosting is cut a lot by the cupcake, which is interesting cause the cupcake is really sweet all by itself. You definitely get a fluffernutter-feel from these cupcakes. The cupcake brings the marshmallow and the frosting brings the peanut butter. Classic. Simple.

Note: The mini cupcakes get totally drowned out by the frosting. They’re adorable, just don’t overload them with frosting or they’ll disappear.
