- 1 package yellow cake mix (regular size)
- 1 cup milk
- 3 eggs

- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
- In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, milk, eggs, butter and vanilla; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes.
- Fill paper-lined muffin cups one-third full. Roll tablespoonfuls of cookie dough into balls. Drop into center of each cupcake. Top with remaining batter.

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.

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.
