Happy Easter

The Easter bunny has been hard at work this weekend in the Cupcake Me Away kitchen. She whipped up a delicious batch of chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes! I got the recipe from my dear friend, Tara, and have been dying for an excuse to make them for the past few weeks. I was browsing Pinterest for some cute Easter cupcake ideas, but everything I found seemed a little over the top. While a cupcake topped in green coconut and a marshmallow peep looks super cute, I'm all about things that taste good. I decided to keep it simple with these chocolate chip cupcakes, filled with cookie dough, and topped with cookie dough frosting and a couple Cadbury mini eggs. Have you ever had a Cadbury mini egg? They are a revelation! It was all I had in me not to eat the whole bag the night before I baked. The recipe said it would yield 24 cupcakes, but I had enough batter left over to make 21 mini cupcakes too! If you're like me, and you eat more cookie dough than you bake...then this is the cupcake for you!
