Drunken Fluffernutter Cupcakes w/ Fluffed Meringue



Ok.

So I know some of you deprived individuals have never had a fluffernutter.

I'm crying a little bit on the inside for you.

It's a childhood must!

Fluff is one of those things we ALWAYS have in the cupboard.

It's one of my comforts. I like a dollop on top of my hot chocolate in the winter. It reminds me of my Great Aunt Bett aka Bambie.

When I was little  and we went to visit she would offer my Mom tea w/ honey and us kids were given a steaming cup of Swiss Miss (mini marshmallows included) and she topped it off with a dollop of fluff. Even though I have kids of my own and am creeping up towards 30 I think she would still serve me Hot Chocolate if I went over to visit.

I have now carried over my hot chocolate and fluff love to my kids. Heck they could skip the hot chocolate and just take the spoon full of fluff! They are so obsessed with it, and since it is nothing but sugar I have to hide it. Way way way way in the back of the cupboards so they never find it! There has been a time or two I've found my youngest son sitting under the table hiding while sticking his grubby little fingers in the jar.

Besides hot chocolate.... Fluffernutters. What is better that Peanut Butter and Fluff??!?!?!?!!?

It's such a great late night snack! My husband can often be found at 1am making a quick sandwich or spreading PB and Fluff on graham crackers.

So my order to you right now is, if the area you live in does not sell Fluff... click this link and order a jar.

Just do it.

My husband  bought a bottle of Smirnoff Fluffed Vodka (marshmallow flavored) and have run out of ways to use it.... I mean I can only drink so many chocolate/fluffed beverages.

So in order to use it up I figured I could start using it in my baking!

These cupcakes are a peanut butter cake with a hint of fluffed vodka topped with Fluffed Meringue.

They are awesome. And how cute right?

Drunken Fluffernutter Cupcakes w/ Fluffed Meringue 

The Cake:

1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup softened butter
1 1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup of peanut butter
2 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup fluffed vodka (optional can be replaced with water)

The Meringue topping:

3 egg whites
1/2 cup sugar
1 tbs of fluffed vodka (optional can use vanilla extract)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350.

In a medium mixing bowl sift together your flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.

In the bowl of your electric mixer cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add in you peanut butter. Mix on medium/low. Add in your eggs one at a time. Mix in milk and vodka.

Slowly mix in your flour mixture. Once it is combined.  Pour into 12 cupcake liners or greased muffin tins.

Bake for about 15-20 minutes.

For the Meringue:

Oh high speed whip your egg whites until soft peeks form. Add in your sugar and vodka. Whip until you have stiff peeks.

Pipe meringue on top of cooled cupcakes. To get the toasted tips either torch them quickly with a kitchen torch or place under the broiler for about 30 seconds.

If you want to skip making the cupcakes and just eat some PB with mallows... then chug some fluffed vodka. I won't judge.







 Now tell me.... do they sell Fluff where you live?

  1. I love fluff! I grew up eating it but haven't had it in years. I do see it in the grocery stores though (in Boston) - perhaps I should get some and make these super fun, delicious looking cupcakes!!

  2. I have to import Fluff ! I keep saying I'm going to find a recipe and make my own but I haven't done it yet. I doubt we have fluffed vodka either. :(

    I'm going to make these anyway. How American will I feel then? LOL

  12. Thank you so much for this recipe!! I grew up on fluffernutters. (And Twinkies thank you very much!) As a healthy 40ish grownup, I know I can't eat them daily, but they still warm my heart. I will be making these cupcakes for my family today! (And for those of you who don't know, Fluff also makes the best peanut butter fudge in the world.) :-)

  13. My daughter came across some recipes for alcoholic cupcakes and sent to me to look at. As I scrolled down I saw the Drunken Fluffernutters. We made them yesterday and with a few changes to bring to our liking (more vodka in the cake and a traditional american buttercream with marshmallow fluff and vodka. OMG these were delish and even better the next day! Thanks for a tasty recipe
