I was playing around in the kitchen a few weekends ago to find that perfect holiday cupcake.
I've been wanting to bake a cookies & cream cupcake for awhile now, but with all the peppermint cookie options at Trader Joes I had not other choice. ;)
The Peppermint Cookies & Cream CupCookie was born.
Peppermint cake with peppermint cookies & cream frosting. I dashed a bit of crumbled candy cane sprinkles and topped it off with a half of a Trader Joes cookie.
But wait. There's more. Flip that baby over and you will see it has a cookie bottom.
I merely amplified the normal cookie and created a delicious cake monster.
You can see the layers here. The bottom of the cupcake is where I placed the cookie half, the side with the cream filling of course.
I'm loving this refreshing cupcake.
It's sweet with a lot of textures and a soothing peppermint finish.
Reminds me of my go-to Starbucks drink right now, the iced peppermint white mocha.
What's your favorite holiday treat?
