Today’s a big day in my little world. My husband joined a squadron unit last week and tonight is the first FRG meeting for me with his new troop. If none of that makes sense to you… don’t worry…. I’ll explain.
My husband is in the Army and got moved to a new unit. Each unit has an FRG or Family Readiness Group which help to create a community among the spouses and families as well as provide important information about training, community events, and deployments. I’ve always been the FRG Leader in the unit my husband has been in… so this will be a bit of an adjustment for me, not being in charge. Tonight is the first meeting and I thought I’d make a good impression and bring cupcakes.
(Side note: I was not in the mood to set up and take fancy photos of these cupcakes… just didn’t have time after I made them, honestly! Had to get to the meeting! So… you get camera phone/Instagram pictures!)
I’ve made cupcakes similar to these before, so I had a pretty good idea how to make them. They turned out pretty good… next time though I think I’ll use a cake recipe that’s a little denser… this cake is pretty light and the frosting and cookie dough ball are a bit heavy in comparison. Cake doesn’t quite hold up to them. BUT… it’s still darn delicious!
They’re chocolate cake with a peanut butter m&m cookie ball baked inside…. topped with peanut butter cookie dough frosting and more m&m’s.
VERY RICH! You need a HUGE glass of milk with these cupcakes!
I’m bringing 2 dozen of these cupcakes to the FRG meeting with me tonight. I hope the ladies enjoy them!!!
Wish me luck!
