Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

I am so excited to share today’s recipe!  I originally saw these on Tidy Mom, and I’ve wanted to make them ever since!  Noah celebrated his birthday last month, and it seemed like the perfect excuse I needed to finally make them!  And I was VERY pleased with how they turned out.

I haven’t made a lot of homemade frostings, only a dozen or so, but I have to say this is my favorite homemade frosting I’ve tried, hands down!  It’s so rich and creamy….and yes! It does taste JUST like cookie dough! [Read more…]

Candy Filled Cookie Cups

Candy Filled Cookie Cups


I love break & bake cookie dough!  As if, ready made cookie dough wasn’t enough of a short cut, the break and bake kind take out all the cutting and measuring-guess work.  Today we’re getting a little creative with our cookie dough, by placing an extra special treat inside!

These Candy Filled Cookie Cups can be made with any kind of cookie dough you choose.  Here we obviously chose chocolate chip, but if you like peanut butter, sugar, or even snicker doodles, they would be perfect as well.  And what’s the filling, you ask?  Mini candy bars, of course!  Just think of all the possible flavor combinations!

Serve these as a fun after school treat, or get the kids involved, by letting them pick their favorite “recipe combinations.”  They will have a blast! [Read more…]
