""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!"

"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!)"

"Cupcakes were great but the frosting is way too rich for my taste. I'll make the cupcakes again but will use my old stand-by butter icing."
