Cookies and Cream Cupcakes

cookies and cream cupcakeWhen I was younger, the first ice cream I would always go for was cookies and cream. Then, as I got older, I don't know, I stopped getting it. Although I dearly love a bite of it from someone else's cone, I think an entire scoop (or two, or three) is just too much for me. But I really like the flavor. What to do? What to do?

Enter cookies and cream cupcakes.

All the amazing flavor of cookies and cream, but without the super heavy, oh-my-God-I-feel-like-I-just-ate-the-universe feeling afterwards. They're light(ish), yummy, impressive to look at, and easy as heck to make. Yes, please.
