It probably comes as no surprise that I love to turn on the oven and bake when the weather is bad. Without a doubt there is no better way to spend a snowy or rainy afternoon. Baking makes the incredibly cold weather and endless winter storms in Boston just a little more bearable. This past weekend blizzard conditions once again left us stuck inside. Although the situation was less than ideal, it did provide the perfect opportunity to make a batch of cupcakes.
I realize that I haven’t shared many cupcake recipes recently but sometimes I go through stages where I make old favorites rather than try new-to-me recipes. Well I’m so glad I decided to try a new recipe and make these chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes last weekend because the result was one truly amazing batch of cupcakes. An eggless cookie dough is used to fill the chocolate chip cupcakes. The cupcakes are then topped with a creamy cookie dough frosting and garnished with more chocolate chips. Chances are we still have a number of cold and dreary days ahead of us and I will definitely keep these cupcakes in mind for those days when baking is in the forecast….
