For the longest time I have been trying to create original cupcakes that I couldn’t find on the web.  However,  I couldn’t think of anything.  Then I had an idea — a really great idea if I could pull it off.  That idea was chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes.  The only problem was the whole raw eggs issue.  So I looked on the web and to my surprise and delight I found a recipe for edible cookie dough (who knew! I didn’t).

Alas, the chocolate chip cookie d’oh cupcake was born.

I wish I had more time to decorate them but again I am a mommy and when you have a baby tugging at your pant legs its hard spend time on the decoration.

Oh and I would like to thank my lovely sister Tonija for helping me prepare this delicious cuppycakes even though she kept on eating all the ingredients.
