Have Cupcakes, will Travel...okay, the cupcakes will travel. WINNER!

57 comments /
Since I started the celebration with cupcakes, I figured that I may as well end it with cupcakes. These particular cupcakes are deceptive. A simple exterior disguises a surprise interior! Even though these cupcakes aren't actually from the book I'm giving to someone today, I saw them over at she's becoming DoughMessTic and KNEW that I MUST make them IMMEDIATELY! (This was Susan's version of a recipe originally posted on AllRecipes.) It's a super easy recipe that uses cake mix and pre-made cookie dough...so you get them in your mouth that much faster...and I am all for that! So, pick your favorite cake and your favorite cookie dough and get to bakin'! Susan chose Devil's Food and Chocolate Chip, which just happen to be my 2 favorites, so I tried that combo first.
Cookie Dough Cupcakes
yield: 24
1 package cake mix (you choose)
1/3 c. melted butter
1 1/3 c. water
3 eggs
1 Pkg. Take & Break Cookie dough (your choice)
Place the cookie dough in the freezer for a few hours before you begin (seriously, don't skip this step! It needs to be done so the dough stays doughy & doesn't dry out!).
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix the dry cake mix, melted butter, water and eggs.
Line your cupcake pan w/ liners and distribute batter evenly throughout (~2/3 full). Place one frozen cookie square on top of each batter-filled liner. No need to press down, they will sink during baking.
Bake for ~15 minutes. Do not over bake as you still want ooey, gooey cookie dough left in the center!!
Cool then frost with your choice of frosting.
Absolutely Fabulous! Seriously, amazing! These went super quick (and we didn't even share w/ the neighbors this time). I had to make more!
The second time I chose Devil's Food again, but I added one disk of grated Mexican Chocolate and a half tsp. of cinnamon to the batter. I used Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough...to enhance that cinnamon goodness!
Yup, awesome too...but the Devil's Food/Chocolate Chip combo is still tops with me. I have so many ideas for which flavors to combine next! And now....for the winner....to receive the fun Cupcake Package.... first a little note on "how" I did the drawing. In the past I've always used my 3 little helpers. I'd hand write down all of the names on little pieces of paper and one or all of them would draw from a hat. I decided to use random.org this time. I started out with 79 comments. From there I subtracted each person who did NOT want to be entered into the drawing. Next, I added each person's additional entries (if they had them) by number corresponding to the "place in line" in which they commented. So, if somebody said "I tweeted", I would add one additional entry directly under that comment (to make the 2nd entry)...or if they said "I want Lady P to knit me knee pads", I would add 2 additional entries directly under that...except for the people who actually entered separate comments for each. Then they were already there, so I didn't need to. So, I ended up with 117 actual entries. From there, I plugged it into Random.org's little random number generator and came up with the winner. I counted down the list (adding or subtracting as necessary) and came up with the winner. Did that make any sense or are you just skipping right to the winner by now? Burp and Slurp!! Congrats Sophia...email me with your shipping address...girlichef at yahoo dot com.

  2. Ohh I luv this posting - and the easiness of it all makes it hard to pass up!
    Yeah to Burp and SLurp! Hope she knows how to handle a "knit cupcake" in the kitchen! they tend to leave yarn trails and scoot around the kitchen visiting with ingredients late at night when they think no one else is watching

  17. Yay!! Congrats, Sophia!

    Girlichef, I came up with the ultimate cupcake for my girl's night in this Saturday...it came to me when I came across a large bar of chili pepper chocolate that I had hidden away a week ago (and forgotten about - oops!). I'm going to try my hand at a chocolate cupcake spiced with some cayenne pepper, topped with your luscious buttercream frosting swirled with some of my melted down chili pepper chocolate. How's about that for a cupcake!!! Spicy and sweet! I love it!! <3 Thanks for the inspiration ;) ;) ;)
