Right about now you are most likely thinking I have lost my mind or that spell check didn’t fix the title of this post. While you don’t have to worry about spell check – my sanity is forever in question – it is true that the title of this recipe seems like an accidental combination of two recipes.
Not at all.
I stumbled upon these little Cookie Dough Cupcake bites in the store and immediately knew that I wanted to try them in a cookie. The end result was a cookie that tasted like a cupcake, thanks to these gorgeous little bites of cupcake joy.
Once I had the dough made, I knew that I wanted to take these one step further, make them just that wee but more awesome.
Sprinkles make everything awesome.
Oh, these were yummy and made me squee over the sheer cuteness. Can you just see these at a baby shower? A birthday party? They are so party perfect! You can see that I left out the sprinkles on one batch and while they do taste great, they are missing the cute factor for sure!
The little cupcake bites really so make these taste like cupcake cookies and you can play with the amount of bites that you use in the cookies. More cupcake bites, more cupcake taste!
Happy baking everyone!
