Before I became a blogger, I had pretty grandiose dreams of revolutionizing the cupcake scene world-wide.
Seriously. The whole cupcake craze: totally my idea.
But hey, let's call a spade a spade– about a gazillion other better-funded cupcakers beat me to the worlwide-cupcake-revolutionizing punch.
I've made my peace with it.
Anyway. I wanted to have this super-amazing signature cupcake. Like, people could look at a cupcake and say, “Hey! That's a Something Swanky cupcake!”
I decided my “thing” would be dipping the tops of my cupcakes in white chocolate before I frosted them. It's amazing. Really amazing. I think it's a texture thing for me. I like to have that little bit of something to bite through to get to the cupcake. You'll have to try it and let me know what you think.
My favorite was Cookies-n-Cream. I don't make my cupcakes like that anymore (and at the moment, I couldn't tell you why not…), but I thought it'd be fun to bring back a version of my favorite cupcake on to the blog to share with you!
Cookies N' Cream Stuffed Cupcakes with White Chocolate
- 1 batch of your favorite chocolate cupcakes
- 1 bag of White Chocolate Melting Discs

- Fill each hole with a tablespoon of the Cookies N' Cream buttercream.
3. Spoon melted white chocolate over the top of each cupcake.
4. Sprinkle with crushed Oreos.
Get a little festive with some crushed up candy canes too!
Cookies N' Cream Buttercream
- 1/2 c. butter
- 1/2 c. shortening
- 3 Tbsp. milk
