Cupcake Hero: Marshmallow – Peanut Butter, Banana and Fluff Sammycakes aka Cuppywiches aka Cupcakes

March 29, 2008 at 1:09 am | Posted in cupcakes, Peanut Butter | 5 Comments

I love s’mores. I adore them, they’re just delightful. I heard marshmallow and thought mmm s’more cupcakes. Then cupcake hero entries started showing up in my google reader and guess what, everyone else likes s’mores just as much as I do. Time to rethink my plan of attack.

I spent up until the last day procrastinating of figuring out my new plan of attack. At first I was going to do chocolate cupcakes with marshmallow swirl and PB frosting, but then I remembered that I have a bunch of ripe bananas that were just waiting to be made …

I’ll be taking a new pic of the middle tomorrow because this one is ugg-o, but it’s late and not happening now

Turkey sandwiches are good, but they will never compare to my absolute favorite sandwich, the beloved peanut butter and banana. I don’t remember the first time I had a peanut butter and banana sandwich, but I do know that from the time I first tried them I knew they would be my friend forever (yes I’m friends with sandwiches :P). And when you think of sandwiches that involve peanut butter, second to jelly you think of fluff. Even though CB was disappointed in my change of plans because she doesn’t like bananas (little whiner) I wasn’t changing my mind.

These really reminded me of PB Banana and fluff sandwiches and I couldn’t be happier. MMMmmm

Peanut Butter Pudding

I made my own vanilla pudding, but you could just as easily use store bought vanilla pudding and mix approximately 1.5 cups of vanilla pudding with 1/3 a cup of PB in your mixer. I used chunky PB because that’s what we had, but creamy will work too.
