Technology and I don’t exactly get along.
Oh, we co-exist together…I know enough to get by.
Take my old Razor phone…
(remember when they came out and were cool?)
Well, I thought I knew everything
there was to know…
how hard is it?
I had the phone for 4 years…
I should know it, right?

It took my oldest all of 10 seconds to find 3 more pages
of symbols that you can use when texting.
I had all those symbols on my phone?
I honestly never saw the tiny word “next” on the screen.
All those years of texting &
never once did I get to send a smiley…
just because I thought my phone wasn’t capable:-)

Technology and me…
well, it might just be me!!

Please tell me I am not the only one.
I hope it doesn’t take me 4 years to learn how
to use the iPhone currently in my possession…

Oh, well, at least I have baking going for me!

Nutter Butter Truffle Cupcakes - brownie cupcakes with a hidden Nutter Butter truffle

You HAVE got to try this yummy
brownie cupcake
filled with the most delectable truffle ever!

Remember this Oreo Truffle Surprise Cupcake?
I have been plotting ever since to come up with one
that just might top it!

Since peanut butter & chocolate
is my choice of poison most days…

seriously whoever invented this…I love you!!!

…it only made sense to buy some Nutter Butter cookies
and try another truffle cupcake again:-)
You are SO going to love these!!!!

A brownie cupcake
baked with a Nutter Butter truffle
AND topped with chocolate butter cream???
I am ALL in!

Of course, you could just eat all the frosting…
and have plain brownies…
but who would do such a thing;-)

Nutter Butter Truffle Cupcakes

Brownie cupcakes filled with a Nutter Butter Truffle center and topped with dark chocolate butter cream. These are incredible.


For the Cupcakes
1 brownie mix + ingredients from back of box (9x13 size)
1/2 package Nutter Butter cookies, crushed
3 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 Tablespoons whipping cream
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup dark cocoa powder


  1. In a mixing bowl beat the cream cheese, peanut butter, vanilla, and cookie crumbs until thoroughly blended. Shape into small balls and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  2. Make up your brownie batter, following the box directions for cake like brownies, while the cookies are chilling. Fill cupcake liners with 2 tsp. of batter. Place a cookie ball in the middle of the batter. Do not press it all the way down. Cover the cookie truffle all the way with batter. (your cupcake liner should be 3/4 of the way full) Bake at 350* for 18-20 minutes. Cool completely before frosting.
  3. Beat the butter, vanilla, whipping cream, and salt until creamy. Slowly add the powdered sugar and cocoa powder. Pipe onto cooled cupcakes. Makes about 16 cupcakes. Keep refrigerated.

    You had me at Nutter Butter! Yum! These look divine.

    I’m technology challenged when it comes to cell phones. I just bought a new one last fall and purposely got one that would do all the fancy email/wi fi/gps stuff. It can text and talk and that makes me happy. :)

    You are an evil genius. I might have told you that before, but I mean it this time. Sheesh, do you have any idea what you do to my will power? This is too much, too much I tell you! I would say thank you for linking up, but I think this post is going to haunt my dreams tonight. Ha ha! J/K, kisses!

    I’ll have to comment later b/c right now I have to go out and buy bigger pants. Eating those cupcakes is going to force me to go up at least a size. 😉 Seriously…amazing!!!

    Holy moo-moo!
    They look awesome!
    WHY did you have to make them, no, why did you have to take pictures of them!?
    I love to bake and especially fairy cakes!
    I will try these–I just made peanut butter cups for Valentine’s so, peanut butter is a fave around here.
    But I can share them, right?
    Or, maybe not.

    I am a total tech phobe even though I do have the iphone (and LOVE it) and do have a blog. But MY blog is not very exciting looking and yours has style and class. I wouldn’t even have the first notion how to change mine even though I desperately want to. You brownie/cupcakes/nutter butter truffle looks so amazing! YUM!

    This sounds like such a treat! I love nutter butters and can’t imagine how great this cupcake will be. Thanks so much for linking to Saturday Swap!!!

    These looked amazing. So I made them. They tasted equally amazing! So I just had to mention it on my Tried It Tuesday post. Thank you for sharing. Your cupcake photos have inspired me to up my cupcake game!

    Cathy Holman sent me over. I’m not sure that I should thank her. They remind me of the recipe I make using a miniature peanut butter cup in brownie mix. What I’ve not done is make a delicious frosting…hmmm… Thanks for the recipe. I hope that Cathy will paint one!

    These look amazing. Unfortunately we can’t purchase Nutter Butter’s in Canada. Is there a substitute you can suggest?
