Recipe Review: Tagalong Cupcakes

I have been wanting to make these cupcakes for months.  This recipe comes from one of my favorite blogs, InsideBruCrew Life.  She has the most awesome recipes!  I saved back a box of Tagalongs with this recipe in mind.  Boy, I am so glad I did!  These were so so very good and my family has eaten them up.  I love the fact that they are made with a box cake mix...saved me some time.  If you have a box of Tagalongs stashed away somewhere, you must give these a try!


Tagalong Cupcakes

1 vanilla cake mix 
Tagalong Cookies (from your favorite Girl Scout)

Preheat oven to 350* Place liners in cupcake pan. Make up the cake mix according to the directions. Put 2 tablespoons of batter in each liner. Set a cookie on top of the batter in each liner and then finish filling the liner with batter. Fill it at least 3/4 of the way full. Bake 22-24 minutes. Let cool. Frost with Honey Peanut Butter Cream. Add sprinkles and eat!

Honey Peanut Butter Cream
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 tbsp water
2-4 tbsp honey
1 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp salt
4 cup powdered sugar

Cream butter and peanut butter. Add the water, salt and vanilla and cream again. Slowly add the powdered sugar. After all the sugar is added, beat in another 1-2 tbsp water. Then beat in the honey until creamy.
