Simply Baking: Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Cupcakes

Happy Hump Day everyone!

I just want to take a second to thank my new followers on WordPress, Facebook and Twitter for the wonderful comments and support of my blog. Honestly, it’s terrifying sometimes putting yourself out there and trying to build an audience but between doing what I love and getting such sweet comments, you all make it so easy! Every like and comment keeps me going and I just want to thank you πŸ™‚

This weeks baking project was amazingly EASY thanks to a recipe via the wonderful Something Swanky. Not only were they delicious cupcakes but they were for a small serving and only required 1 bowl which in my book is an A+ (I despise washing dishes.. lol). According to her recipe, it makes 4 cupcakes but I decided to go with mini-cupcakes and it made me 8 little bad boys. Perfect for post-dinner dessert without having leftovers!

The mini muffin baking sheet was $12.99 well spent at Target, a definite must have.

LOL, can you tell I don’t trust time andΒ always poke my baking projects with a toothpick to see if they’re done?

For this cupcake, the frosting to cake ratio is just right if the frosting wins.

I think I’ll have to try making these again soon, with Reeses Minis. I was told they tasted sorta like a Reeses cupcake so I can only imagine if I had Reeses in them! I looooove Reeses.

How is your Wednesday going? I have a few friends coming back into town from school so it’s been fun getting to have catch-up dates (like last night with one of my oldest best friends Hazel). I’ve also been having bouts of insomnia at night so I wake up exhausted but I think it’s because all my blog ideas keep me up brainstorming. Any one else have that issue?

Here’s a song that I’ve had on repeat all week: Matt Kearney – Ships in the Night

Hope you have a great week!

  4. Wow! As someone who much prefers to eat cookie dough than eat cookies, this is right up my alley! I like the way your photos are laid out too πŸ™‚

    A question about your blog in general – I”ve been considering switching from my blog to a so that I can have my own domain name, but many people have told me that you are unable to have people follow your blog via their wordpress if you do this – but you appear to have your own domain AND following capabilities :/ howww?! haha. x

    • Hey Morgan, if you love cookie dough, this recipe is definitely for you! Thanks for the photo compliment πŸ™‚

      Actually I am still on, I just bought the domain mapping upgrade that allows me to have my own domain (I think it was around $26 annually). So I don’t not sure how works to be honest but I use and I like it so far (minus not getting to do any ads or selling ad space with fellow bloggers 😦 ) Let me know if you have any more questions!

Thank you so much for commenting! I read ALL comments and I truly treasure every single one! :)
