Cookies and Cream Cupcakes

I’d heard about cupcakes with brownies in the middle, which I’d love to try, but I haven’t been able to find a good scratch recipe yet. They all seem to call for mixes, so let me know if you have one!

Instead I decided to try cupcakes with cookies in them, and I settled on this recipe from The Learning Channel.

There wasn’t anything complicated about the recipe, and it seemed like a nice, simple vanilla cupcake. I also found several similar recipes that had good reviews.

The only tweak I made was to chop the cookies instead of crushing them, as I liked the idea of having slightly larger chunks in the cupcakes.

For the decoration, I bought Mini Oreo Snack Packs and used Oreo Cookie crumbs that you would normally use for a pie crust.

All in all I think the cupcakes came out delicious, and they were a big hit. I was cursing my ‘non-convection’ oven as I baked, but there were no other major mishaps, and that to me is a successful baking adventure.
