I made these to take to work because I was in the mood for testing a new recipe. These were some of the best cupcakes I've ever made. They were a lot of fun to make also because it was so messy. Everyone told me how great they were and kept teasing me on when I was going to bring more in. They taste wonderfully soft even after a couple of days. I would recommend this recipe to anyone!


My son and I had a lot of fun making these together. He rolled the cookie dough and I mixed the cupcakes. These were so good we have bought more cake mixes and cookies to experiment with different flavors.


I made these cupcakes after getting this recipe in the mail with some coupons. They were so easy to make and fun!! People loved them at Easter and are now a family favorite. We will make these over and over again! So delicious!


These are a fistful of chocolatey goodness! Especially good when you can't decide between cake and cookies--you get two treats in one!


I made these cupcakes and brought them to work, and they were a huge hit! Everyone thought these were the best cupcakes they had ever tasted! So easy to make and definitely worth making again and again.


The cupcakes were easy to make and tasted very good, but in several of my cupcakes there was a big surprise - a hollowed out area where the cookie dough melted and left a hole. I made the cupcakes for a family get together and while everyone enjoyed them, they were not a show stopper.


I made these cupcakes with my four-year old grandson. They were quite easy to make and surprisingly delicious! A great time was had by all.
