This past week, I felt like making some super ridic. dessert, and when I saw these Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Dough with Toasted Marshmallow Frosting Cupcakes by Joy the Baker, I knew that I had found my answer.
So first this happened.
Then Lavella got off the school bus, so there was suddenly a whole lot of finger-lickin' help.
I carved little scoops out of the top of each cupcake, and Lavella ate each little scoop. Then she helped me to position the peanut-butter chocolate-chip cookie-dough balls on top of the cupcakes, and I piped marshmallow/Italian Meringue frosting over the whole shebang.
Yes, I just said "shebang". Learn to deal.
Once we were done frosting, there was still quite a bit of the stuff left in the bowl, so someone had to take care of it. Thankfully the boys got home from school at approximately this point, so they were able to help with the frosting consumption. And yes, it did end up in Lavella's hair, and on Elijah's neck, earlobes and eyebrows -- why do you ask?
While my helpers licked the bowl clean, I ran the frosted cupcakes under the broiler to give it the look of a toasted marshmallow.
So unnecessary, SO GOOD.
Hello tower of deliciousness. Yes, I will eat SEVERAL OF YOU. THANK YOU FOR EXISTING.
