Cookies and Cream Cupcakes with Copy-Cat Sweet Tooth Fairy Frosting
As many of you read, I went to EVO a couple weeks ago and had the time of my life.
Upon arrival, the cute girls from eighteen25 surprised us with the most AMAZING cupcakes from Sweet Tooth Fairy. There were many options to choose from, but I bet you all can guess by now, I am a die-hard chocolate lover. The fruity stuff is great, but if there is ANYTHING involving chocolate, I’m in! These were, hands down, THE BEST CUPCAKES I HAVE EVER EATEN! If you live in Utah or are planning to visit Utah, I encourage you to go to Sweet Tooth Fairy and try her incredible cupcakes! You will be SO GLAD you did!
One bite of her Cookies and Cream cupcake, and I was hooked. Only problem is, they don’t have a store one near where I live, so I did my best to recreate it!
One of the best things about a Sweet Tooth Fairy Cupcake is the frosting. I typically am not a frosting lover, but I could eat that frosting by the spoonful! I found this copy-cat recipe over at Creative Chaos, adapted it slightly to make a Cookies and Cream variation, and boy is it ever close to the real deal. It is delicious and unlike any frosting I have ever made before!
I also sought out the best fudgey moist cake recipe I could find and this one from Good Food Gourmet did the trick! Again, I adapted it slightly to create a perfect cookies and cream cake, and it turned out delish!
Combine these two recipes and you get the PERFECT Cookies and Cream cupcake! Don’t let the number of ingredients scare you… they really are SUPER EASY to make and most of these ingredients you will have on hand! These cupcakes are seriously amazing and you will be SO GLAD you made them :)

These cupcakes are AMAZING! The frosting is absolutely incredible!
Because I LOVE this frosting… I double the frosting recipe.
Also… for those wondering what Dream Whip is, I took a picture of the box. Serveral packets come in this box. You can find it in the grocery store in the baking aisle next to the pudding boxes, cake mixes, etc.
