Fluffernutter WONDER Cupcakes!

I thought that this weekend would be the perfect time to take a crack at the June Cupcake of the Month Club flavor...Fluffernutter Wonder Cupcakes! My husband and my Dad are both BIG peanut butter fans, and since we were all getting together to celebrate Father's Day...dessert was decided!


Fluffernutter Wonder Cupcakes!

This flavor was the winning suggestion from my Name That CUPCAKE Contest! YOUR votes decided what flavor I would be making...and let me tell you...you all did a great job! This is one of my absolute FAVORITE flavors TO-DATE! I should also mention that 4 of my best Taste Testers agreed...so I think it's safe to say that the cuppies were a hit ;)

I started with a rich Peanut Butter Cupcake, topped with a small circle of chocolate syrup, covered the syrup with the most amazing (if I do say so myself) Marshmallow Buttercream Frosting and finished with a small piece of homemade Peanut Brittle. I'll give you a minute to let that sink in.....goodness...I'm getting all worked-up just describing them!

It's time for a Close-up....ahhhhh!
  Because I make a business out of selling these delectable treats...I don't usually share my recipes...but...I'm going to make a bit of an exception (sort-of!) I'm a big fan of short-cuts and have the best Microwave Peanut Brittle recipe that I HAVE to share with you all! So...if you want to take-a-whack at making your own Fluffernutter Wonders, find a good PB Cuppie recipe, concoct some type of Marshmallowy topping...and then make this SUPER easy and SUPER delish brittle...in about 15 minutes!

 Microwave Peanut Brittle

Ingredients


1 cup white sugar

1/2 cup light corn syrup

1 cup Honey Roasted Peanuts

1 Tablespoon butter

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon baking soda


Directions
Line a cookie sheet with Parchment or Wax Paper. Mix the sugar, corn syrup and peanuts in a large glass bowl. Microwave on high for 5-6 minutes; mixture will be bubbly and peanuts should be browned. Stir in butter and vanilla; microwave 2-3 minutes more. Remove mixture from microwave, add baking soda. Mix quickly; pour onto lined cookie sheet. Cool completely, break into pieces and ENJOY!

Happy Baking everyone!!!
