Have you seen them? The Girls Scouts are out in full swing. Hanging outside of the stores. Filling my Facebook stream with talk about cookie sales and how many boxes they have on hand. What kind of cookie they love. Here is the problem. I LOVE TAGALONGS!!! I can eat a whole box. At once. I love them. In hopes of not eating the whole box at once, Tagalong peanut butter cupcakes came into my life. A great way to get all of your peanut butter and chocolate fix, without going through boxes and boxes of Tagalong cookies in one sitting.
