Peanut Butter Patties (Tag-a-longs) Girl Scout Cookie Cupcakes

This is my cute little nephew (2-1/2 years old) eating his way through this delicious Peanut Butter Patties Cupcake. This blog post is also one of thee funniest photo shoots to date here on MOMS CRAZY COOKING.

I was babysitting my nephew (and one of his sisters too) but he just LOVES Aunt Tina's Cupcakes. He knows everytime I see him, stop by his house, or he comes to my house that most likely I will always have somekind of cupcake for him. This time I thought it would be fun to have him bake some with me.

He was a riot taking pictures, best model I've had so far. I would tell him, I need a picture of this or that, make sure you look this way or that way? And he would do just what I asked him. I think my sister needs to tap in on that talent. He would be a perfect model. Even when I wanted the perfect picture of him taking a bite of the cupcake, he put it right to his mouth and said "is this good", "did you get it", and "okay am I done now", "can I take a real bite". IT WAS SO DANG CUTE!!! I could of cooked all day with him, but cupcakes were as far as we got.

The outcome though was these one-of-a-kind outrageously delicious, better then any peanut butter cupcake I have ever tasted Girl Scout Cookie Cupcakes. That thank goodness we can only make these a few times a year, when those cute little girl scouts come around selling there delicious cookies. If you see them outside the store, know any girls that still have cookies to sell, then I suggest you get some Peanut Butter Tag-a-Long (or Peanut Butter Patties), so you can make these AWESOME Cupcakes.  I found this recipe over at Inside BruCrew Life and I just knew I had to try them and I am SOOOO happy I did!

Peanut Butter Patties Girl Scout Cookie Cupcakes
originally found at Inside BruCrew Life

1 box vanilla cake mix
1 box Peanut Butter Patties (Tag-a-Longs) Girl Scout Cookies

Preheat oven to 350. Place liners in a cupcake pan. Make up the cake mix according to the directions on the box. Put about 2 Tbsp of cake batter into the liner, then set in one cookie on top. Finish off each cupcake with the rest of the batter. Fill it at least 3/4 of the way full. Bake 22-24 minutes. Let cool and then frost with Honey Peanut Butter Cream, add sprinkles and eat!

Honey Peanut Butter Frosting
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 Tbsp water
2 Tbsp honey
1 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp salt
4-5 cups powdered sugar

Cream butter and peanut butter. Add the water, salt, and vanilla and cream again. Slowly add the powdered sugar until desired thickness. After all the sugar is added, beat in another 1-2 Tbsp water (optional). Then beat in the honey until creamy. (Make sure that it doesn't get to creaming)
