My friend, Elisa, just happened upon several pages worth of cupcake recipes last week. They included this Cookies 'n Cream recipe that looked interesting. They are so fattening, however, I couldn't bring myself to eat one. I did have a couple Tablespoons of icing though, so it's not like I'm being good or anything. When I took this first photo I didn't realize the stack of Christmas books were in the background. Guess the Grinch is still being "grinch-y" after all these years!
The whipped cream cheese icing was SO GOOD! And with 3 dozen Oreos scattered throughout only 24 cupcakes you can imagine the taste of those as well.
Neat factor: This is the bottom of the cupcake. Cute!
On the mess making factor? I think I'd have to give them a 10. I'm still finding little black crumbs on my countertops a day later.
Christmas cupcakes coming Friday!
