Well, I didn’t really get to blog about it, but a few weeks ago I made Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough cupcakes. I found the recipe in one of the blogs I read (and actually, I can’t even remember which blog). It sounded fantastic.
In actuality,they were only OK. I took them into work for a co-workers birthday, and everyone seemed to like them. But I think they were only OK. I think they feel to the “too much of a good thing” category. It was a chocolate chip cookie batter, with cookie dough filling and then cookie dough frosting. I would prefer a regular vanilla chocolate chip cupcake with the cookie dough filling and frosting with a tad less brown sugar.
Now I’m debating what my next challenge will be. I’ve been in the mood to make an apple cupcake (maybe I’ll use Amanda’s recipe). Or…
Also, late last week, they announced the 4th Mystery Box Challenge – Orange.
The left the challenge a little broad this month. That way people who want to do pumpkin/Halloween can, but those who want to do something different can make a fall themed cupcake. I’m not a huge pumpkin person, so I’m thinking orange frosting would be the path I’d take.
