When Annie posted these a couple of weeks ago, I immediately put them at the top of my “to-do” list. At first glance, I thought I wouldn’t really be into them. Never been much of a cookie gal. But, when I realized that the “cookie” on top was in fact frosting? Like I said, right to the top of my list!

Rich and chocolatey, these cupcakes really pack a punch. Moist chocolate cake, enrobed with a bittersweet chocolate ganache. And, the pièce de résistance – the cookie frosting. Which, was just right. Not overwhelmingly sweet. Annie had mentioned she thought they were reminiscent of a buckeye, and I totally concur. We loved them! A new favorite to add to the books.
