Root Beer Cupcakes

What feels more summer than a tall frosty glass of foamy root beer?  Root beer is quite the American treat, dating back to the 1870s.

When I came across this recipe for Root Beer Cupcakes I had to give it a shot.  Here is where I took a turn.....

Rather than use the frosting with the recipe, I made root beer fluff.

1 cup root beer
1 3.3oz. package of vanilla pudding
1 8oz. container Cool Whip

Beat the root beer and pudding together until firm.  Fold in Cool Whip.  Done!
I wasn't sure this was going to work but it did and it's pretty tasty.  I love the direction it could take too.  Coke fluff, Dr. Pepper Fluff, and on and on!

I took photos this morning and then I had to eat it for breakfast with a large cup of coffee.  Oh, the blogging sacrifices I make.

I'll be sharing this yummy fluff HERE.

Root beer cupcakes, wow! What a cool idea! I have only tasted root beer once in my life, when I was in the US. So this would be a fun recipe to try one day. :p

I've been wondering how peanut butter cupcakes and frosting would taste? Your Rootbeer Fluff sounds pretty darn good!

I think adding the coke to the recipe will be a hit for my family. Sounds really nice. Thanks for posting.
