Reviews for Cookie Dough Cupcakes with Ganache Frosting
""Very good & easy too! Made them for my nieces birthday, and was running late so I couldn't wait for the frosting to cool so I just dipped the tops of the cupcakes in the frosting while it was warm. They turned out prefect!"Read more: http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/cookie-dough-cupcakes-with-ganache-frosting#ixzz3HQzcYLlv"

"The cookie dough just sunk to the bottom of the cupcake but everyone raved about how good they were! Instead of the ganache, I used almond flavored buttercream icing, both chocolate and regular (and sprinkles, of course!)"
"The cream is used when you melt the chips down for the icing."
"What about the heavy whipping cream, I didn't see in the recipe what to do with it?Thanks,Rita"
