Ok, now on to this cupcake.  There is just so much amazingness in this thing there aren’t really words to describe it.  It starts with an incredibly light and perfect vanilla cupcake.  There is a ball of egg free cookie dough in the middle.  And then it is topped with a Biscoff frosting.  Really, I should just give you the recipe and be done here, because I think I have said enough.

But, I guess I will keep going 🙂  I took this idea from Cookies and Cups.  I know you know who she is, but just in case you don’t; Shelly has an amazing dessert blog with super creative over the top desserts. She has the same love of chocolate and peanut butter that I do (stay tuned I just made something else from her site today).  I always come away from her site inspired and hungry.  Probably best we aren’t neighbors or I would be at least 20 pounds heavier.

So anyway….make these cupcakes!  They were a huge hit when our friends were visiting.
