Revisiting Biscoff Cupcakes

I originally posted this cupcake recipe back in July and have made several batches.  If you haven't tried these cupcakes yet, it's a definite must-do!  I think the most challenging thing is to find the Biscoff spread and the cookies, but other than that it's easy!

I made these last week for my husband to take to a company that he does business with.  They aren't overly sweet (the frosting is not the typical buttercream that I use) so they're a bit more low key.  Please check out the original website here.

Slutty Brownies

We are a family of chocolate freaks.  I like milk chocolate, my husband likes dark chocolate, my son-in-law likes exotic chocolate and my daughter likes Entemann's Chocolate Chip cookies that can no longer be purchased in So Cal and can only be enjoyed when David brings them home when he returns from business trips from the midwest.

I saw this recipe Super Bowl Sunday, but since we aren't really a sport-loving family, I had no reason to make them.  But, since this is a three-day weekend for me, I thought it would be a perfect time to try the recipe.  Could there be anything better than a recipe that combined chocolate chip cookie dough (with a bit of mint extract), mint Oreos, and brownie mix topped with chocolate frosting and sprinkes???  

All I can say is wow.

If you decide to make these treats, allow quite a bit of time since there are quite a few steps.  I baked them a bit longer than described in the recipe, and I didn't have a 9x9 pan, so I improvised.  But I'd say give it a shot.  It's worth the effort!
