college eats, week 3: anita brownies/cupcakes

Eat it. Now. Dooooooo it. You know you want to. ;)

Wow, I'd be a great drug-pusher, huh? Except that my drug of choice would be desserts. :) I had a yearning to make something chocolate tonight, so what did I bake up? None other than the chocolate cookie dough cupcake recipe from my good friend, Anita. I made these about a year ago for a BBQ with a bunch of friends....but I have just recently discovered that these puppies are even better when you bake 'em in an 8x8-inch pan. I had a little extra cake batter and cookie dough left over and didn't really feel like washing out the muffin tin after the first batch had finished baking. So I basically just made a mound of cookie dough in the center of the pan, poured in the rest of the cake batter, and made sure it covered the dough. Bake until a knife comes out clean, and voila! Deeeelicious cookie dough brownies. :)

Anita Cupcakes

1 box chocolate cake mix
chocolate chip cookie dough
1 can chocolate frosting

Prepare cake according to package instructions, and pour batter into cupcake pan. Before baking, push a teaspoon-sized ball of cookie dough into the center of each cupcake well. Place in oven, and bake for time indicated on cake package instructions. Remove from oven, and cool.
