I must agree with LTH. Her chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes are the BOMB and by FAR her BEST creation yet!!! :) After having polished nearly half a dozen of LTH's cookie dough cupcakes (no kidding lol!), these just don't compare. Don't get me wrong.... These are yummy but just not AS good. As per LTH's suggestion (per her review), I subbed a dark chocolate (fudge) cake mix for the white one called for. Keep in mind, if you use ANYTHING other than a white cake mix, READ THE BOX DIRECTIONS CAREFULLY! White cakes are made with egg whites to help maintain the cake's white color. All other cakse are made with the ENTIRE egg (yolk AND white). Rather than layering a dollop of cake batter, a 1/3 of the brownie batter and the remaining 2/3 of my cupcake liner with MORE cake batter (as many reviewers have done), I followed LTH's directions TO THE LETTER. My only change (other than subbing a different flavor cake mix), was to chill my brownie batter slightly to ensure this part of my cupcakes remained gooey when baked (thanks karguo!). I lightly sprayed each liner with cooking spray to ensure my brownie layer would not stick (worked like a charm). I topped each cupcake with chocolate fudge buttercream frosting and chopped PB cups. With these changes, I ended up with a cupcake similar (both flavor and texturewise) to a decadent, chocolatey truffle. Mmmmm.... Thanks for sharing another one of your unique recipes, LTH! :-)
