Cookies and Cream Cupcakes

I was so excited about making these cookies and cream cupcakes.  Its was so easy and they tasted great.

Cookie Mix

I used about eight cookies in mines but you can add more or use less in your recipe.  Its all about the amount to cookies you want to see in your finished product.

Black and white wrappers


I thought these black and white print wrapper would be perfect for the cupcakes.  They brought out just the right pop.

When you make these you can use store brought frosting but there is nothing better than making your own from scratch.  And if you’re used to making frosting you can change up and recipe and make a whipped frosting or a butter cream frosting.  Pretty much whatever you like.

Cupcakes ready to be frosted.  When baking make sure you keep an eye on them so they don’t over bake.  Mines sat a little longer than I wanted but they were delicious none the less.

I used a basic swirl pattern on mines but you can frost yours any way you prefer.
