.tagalong with me.

I woke up this morning with a hankering to bake. Sometimes it happens. I also bought some girl scout cookies last week. So I thought to myself, "Self, what would go good with girl scout cookies?" To which I replied, "Well, Self, probably a big ol' chocolate cupcake with peanut butter frosting."

Yeah, I'm pretty much a genius y'all.

I also had some cream cheese and sour cream in the fridge that I wanted to use up, and with that, I bring you Tagalong Cupcakes. I used the Guinness Chocolate Cupcake recipe from my birthday, but instead of Guinness I just used a little bit of extra sour cream and 2 tablespoons of milk. It was fate, these were the most perfect looking cupcakes I've ever baked. The frosting was also to die for.

Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Frosting  
frosts 6 cupcakes
2.5 ounces cream cheese
2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons milk
3/4- 1 cup powdered sugar

Combine the cream cheese and peanut butter until mixed. Add the milk and vanilla, combine. Add the powdered sugar, 1/4 cup at a time. I only used 3/4 cup powdered sugar and it was very thick frosting, just the way I like it! I found that this also made the perfect amount of frosting for the 6 cupcakes, finally! But, y'all know I'm not huge on the frosting so if you like copious amounts of the stuff I would double this recipe.

After the cupcakes are completely cooled, frost them to your liking. Then place a Tagalong cookie on top. Easy peasy!

I loved being able to scoop the frosting with the cookie!

  3. You win.

    I'm not sure what game it is we are playing.

    But you win.

  4. When it comes to baked goods incorporated with girl scout cookies I think EVERYBODY wins. Haha. :D

  5. Better watch all that yummy food you bake, or brian's tummy will begin to match the one you will be getting soon:) Love you!

  6. speaking of baking... if you haven't done this months daring bakers challenge then do it. The filling is soooo tasty all on it's own when it spills out because you didn't leave enough room for rolling.....
