Ok, so maybe I’ve been sitting on this one for a few weeks, but they were so good. When Beth and Meredith came over to Athens for the weekend, we made a little trip to Trader Joe’s (Beth had never been) and came out with a plan to make cupcakes from the many jars of Cookie Butter that came back with us. Of course, when we found the box of dark chocolate Cookie Butter Cups, there was no way we weren’t using those some way, too. Our original thought was just for garnish…then someone suggested we make surprise cupcakes. Done.
Cookie Butter Surprise Cupcakes
These were really delicious, and really, really sweet (that’s probably the best way to describe them). I really feel like you could easily switch this recipe up and make it with Peanut Butter (in place of Cookie Butter) and Peanut Butter Cups (in place of Cookie Butter Cups). I posted the cupcake and the icing recipes separately, so keep scrolling to find the icing recipe just below the picture of it in all of its fluffy glory.
