So I am lucky enough to be BFF with one of the handsome gentlemen over at Counting The Lights (http://countingthelights.com/) and they invited me over to watch a live abortion! Just kidding, kind of, they invited me over to watch the Royal Rumble PPV. They’re a fun group of guys so of course, I baked cupcakes and headed over.
I thought they’d all ‘mark out’ for cupcakes with their logo on the top, so thats what I did. I recently made peanut butter cupcakes for Christmas and they were delicious so I thought that a house full of boys would like them. I also brought fritos and diet soda because I am an excellent house guest and bring the goods. And they’re good hosts and provided manwich, aka God’s greatest gift to man. They live-tweeted the event, so even if you missed it, you can feel like you were watching it. With a room full of dudes who had been drinking two types of bloody marys since noon that day. Follow them on twitter – @countinglights – and definitely check out their site.
Onto the cupcake recipe….
I thought about being lazy and just posting a link to my previous post, but I guess I won’t self promote.
1 box Devil’s Food cake mix
12oz diet cream soda
24 mini reeses cups, frozen
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Fill cupcake liners slightly less than halfway. Unwrap a reese cup and put it in the middle the batter, secure it in the batter but don’t mash it to the bottom of the liner, you’re not an animal. Bake for 15 minutes and let cool.
2/3 cups peanut butter
2 sticks butter, softened
2 1/3 cup powdered sugar
Whip butter until creamy, about 3 minutes. Combine with peanut butter and whip an additional 3 minutes. Slowly add in the powdered sugar until fluffy, adding water if you need to thin it out.
Pipe on to the cupcake. Eat.
