So this is going to be a quick post, I have been wanting to post the chocolate cupcake as promised but some little mister has been giving me looks like this...
Several years ago I had one of my bottom wisdom teeth break through my gums, my whole left side of my jaw swelled up like a chubby chipmunk. Lucky for me I worked for a dental office and they shot me up with some good ole numbing power to make it somewhat tolerable. So little buddy, I feel for ya.....unfortunately all I have is orajel and baby tylenol, which sometimes seems as if it is pointless. If he was a bit older I would make him something extra special just for being the trooper that he is. In fact, I might even make him something like this....
I took my all-time favorite chocolate cupcake recipe and paired it with cookies n' cream frosting...
OH YES I DID.
I think the pic sums up the chocolate-y goodness....one piece of advice, make sure you have a tall glass of ice cold milk in your other hand. You can't have oreo's without the milk, it just wouldn't be right....and I don't even like milk much. So here ya go!
Chocolate Cupcake with Cookies n' Cream Frosting:
Source: I don't remember where I got the cupcake recipe, the frosting is from Annie's Eats
2 C. Sugar
1 3/4 C Flour
3/4 C Unsweetened Cocoa
2 tsp. Baking soda
1 tsp. Baking powder
1 tsp Salt
1 C. Buttermilk
1 C strong black coffee, or instant coffee with 1 C boiling water.
1/2 C Vegetable Oil
1 tsp Vanilla
Preheat oven to 350
In large bowl stir together first 6 ingredients. Add in the remaining ingredients and beat on medium for 2 minutes. Pour into prepared cupcake pans, and bake for 18-25 minutes. For mini cupcakes bake for 9-11 minutes. Cool completely.
For the frosting:
1 3/4 cups plus 2 tbsp. whipping cream
3 tbsp. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
6 tbsp. Oreo cookie crumbs
In the clean bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, combine the whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Beat on medium-high speed until the whipped cream holds stiff peaks. Gently fold in the cookie crumbs with a spatula.
Remember cupcake in one hand, milk in the other.
