Nutter Butter Stuffed Cupcakes with Rich Peanut Butter Frosting





These fun cupcakes were a surprise for some of my neighbors.  We went to their lake house a few weeks ago.  The husband knew that I liked to bake, especially cupcakes.  He teased me about not bringing cupcakes with me to the lake, just store bought cookies.  So, one night when the family was out of the house for a few hours I raided their cabinets.  With it being a lake house I wasn't sure what I would find.  Hoping to surprise them with cupcakes...I actually found a chocolate cake mix, cupcake liners, and other baking supplies.  Now, what to top them with?  Then I found the bag of mini Nutter Butter cookies.  That was it!!  I stuffed the cupcakes with the cookies, and made a rich peanut butter glaze frosting.  Feeling like I was on "Cupcake Wars", I finished just as they were walking in the door.  They were pleasantly surprised to find a yummy treat waiting for them.  I hope you enjoy them too!!

18 Cupcakes:
chocolate cake mix (and all the ingredients it calls for)
Nutter Butter Bites mini cookies

Rich Peanut Butter Frosting:
2 c. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 c. milk
1/2 c. peanut butter



Make cake mix as it directs on the box.  Fill cupcakes liners 1/3 full, place cookie in middle, top with more batter until 2/3 full.  Bake as directed on box.  Cool completely.

Mix all frosting ingredients together, gradually adding milk until blended well.  If it is too thick, add a little more milk.  Pipe onto top of cupcake (or put in a plastic bag and snip off corner to pipe...that is what I used at the lake house).  Top with crumbled cookies.
