chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes

These may not sound all that exciting, but I always fall for the dessert surprise in disguise.  I was shocked to discover that both the cupcake and the frosting taste EXACTLY (IMHO) like chocolate chip cookie dough. They are supposed to be stuffed with cookie dough balls, but if that’s too much for you, they are equally delicious without.  Really, they were much, much tastier than I had anticipated. Highly recommend to any chocolate chip cookie dough fans!!!

chocolate chip oreo cookies

These were fun and yummy.  Were they the most fabulous cookies I’ve ever had?  Not by a long shot.  But the kids liked them, and they genuinely had the flavor of cookies and cream ice cream.  Who’s gonna say no to that?  Next time I would add more of the straight chocolate and a little more Oreo too.  Continue reading ‘chocolate chip oreo cookies’
