Incredible Mind Blowing Dessert……….  These Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes are THAT good!

Oh yes! you read that right!  We made THE most amazing cupcakes back in November for my oldest daughter’s 23rd birthday!  She’s a huge fan of cookie dough and couldn’t say YES fast enough to Cookie Dough Cupcakes with Cookie Dough Frosting.

You may remember, the year before she picked Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies for her birthday dessert……are you seeing a pattern here?  How am I going to top these two cookie dough recipes for her next birthday?!

Well,  let me tell you, these cupcakes DID NOT FAIL!

They were so good……….I wouldn’t even call them cupcakes, it’s not a big enough title……….maybe something like “Incredible Mind Blowing Dessert”.…….yeah, I think that’s MUCH better. Because these are nothing like you’ve ever had before! If you or someone you know is a cookie dough lover, YOU MUST make these!
