I have the best time coming up with fun cupcake recipes, and the latest are these easy cookies and cream cupcakes. They’re simple, tasty and–best of all there are cookies!
Cookies and Cream Cupcakes
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we are in love with cupcakes. They’re seriously one of the most efficient ways to eat frosting–I mean, wait, no…they’re the best party treats. Right. Riiiight. In all seriousness, though, cupcakes are my “thing.” And these cookies & cream cupcakes are no exception.
Seriously moist with bits of cookie and an icing that tastes just like my favorite cookie filling, well, it’s kind of a wonder it took me this long to make these! If you’re ready for a fun cupcake decorating idea that takes less than 5 minutes for a whole dozen cupcakes, let’s get started.

Tips to Make Chocolate Cupcakes with Cookies
- Start with your favorite chocolate cupcake recipe. If you’re anything like me, you definitely need a “no-fail” cupcake, so I always fall back on my Lazy Girl chocolate cupcakes. Done right every time–and they’re always so moist it’s sinful.
- Sure, you can make a cream cheese frosting if that’s what you have your heart set on. But the best, most light and fluffy frosting you can pipe with a decorating bag is this awesome homemade buttercream in this recipe, with confectioners sugar and all the yummy. Plus, it tastes just like the creamy filling of OREO cookies. Which is awesome.
- Always always always let your cupcakes cool to room temperature before you frost them because warm frosting is no fun.
