The warm aroma of bananas baking remind me that something SUPER-DELICIOUS will be coming out of the oven,

and oh when these cuppies are baking, believe me….you will know they will be delicious.

They have a hint of brown sugar and well…

brown sugar makes baked items tastier, don’t you agree?

The frosting is smooth and creamy and has a wonderful flavor.
I put the brown sugar in a food processor to grind it super smooth, like dust….so that the frosting isn’t crunchy, but has that delicious brown sugar taste!

I just love these cute marshmallow bananas, they topped off the cupcakes nicely. Dried banana chips or banana runt candy would work well too.

  2. I love banana in baked goods. I’m the girl who lets bananas go just a few days past on purpose so I can justify making them into some sort of bread!

    These sound amazing and that marshmallow topper is perfect! I’m thinking Runts would do very well too!
