Only 3 1/2 days of school left. I'm not sure if I should be elated or terrified. I'm leaning towards terrified.
Let's focus on cupcakes, shall we.
I have a new favorite cupcake!
Oh my freakin' WORD! Where have these babies been all my life?! My chocolate-only-lovin' boy was impressed with these as well. =Huge!
I've always liked Snickerdoodle cookies, but I'm not sure I would pick them over a more flashy option. Hello...Triple Chocolate Chunk Cookies or Double Fudge Oreo Crunch Cookies or even Pretzel M&M Cookies. It's another story with the cupcake version of this cookie. Good grief. Delicious!
Make some soon!
