Rolo Cupcakes

Are you a fan of Rolo’s?  If so you’ll love these Rolo Cupcakes!  When it comes to cupcakes here on Num’s the Word, Jodie is our resident cupcake expert.  She makes the best looking and tasting cupcakes around.

For example, have you tried our Italian Cream Cheese Cupcakes or our Root Beer Float Cupcakes or our classic Vanilla Cupcakes.  In fact, right now on Nums, {Counting this post}, we have 15 cupcake recipes!  And all but this post, came from Jodie. See, I told you she was our cupcake gal.

So what does that mean?  It means, I’m more of a pie girl than a cupcake girl.  In fact, I don’t really care for cupcakes at all {GASP!}.  Yep.  You heard me.  {Shhh! Don’t tell Jodie!}
