Cookies & Cream CupcakeYummy, gluten-free chocolate cake, topped with cookies & cream icing. Easy to make, fun to eat and a delicious twist on an old go to dessert.

In honor of my mom's birthday this week, I decided to jazz up this simple birthday treat. I was recently given a bag of Bob's Red Mill Chocolate Cake Mix, which I used for the cupcake portion of this recipe. I was never a huge fan of cookies & cream ice cream. Always preferred chocolate chip instead but the white icing in the bowl looked like it needed some company so there you have it...cookies & cream cupcakes.

Cookies and Cream Cupcake Ingredients

Prepare the chocolate cake according to the directions or using your favorite gluten-free chocolate cake recipe. Cool the cupcakes completely before you make the icing as the icing will thicken and become very hard to work with. Break up the gluten-free sandwich cookies in a bag or food processor until they are in tiny pieces. Cream the butter, sugar, milk and vanilla on low speed in a mixer. Add the crushed gluten-free cookies to the frosting and mix until fully incorporated. Voila, cookies & cream cupcakes.
