Cookies-N-Cream Cupcakes

Cookies-N-Cream Cupcakes – 6 WW pts with frosting (from Crazy about Cupcakes) makes 24
1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 2/3 cup sugar
3 large egg whites, at room temperature
1 cup chocolate sandwich cookies, lightly crushed
Preheat over to 350F. Insert liners into a medium cupcake pan.

In a large bowl cream together the butter, milk, and vanilla with an electric mixer until fluffy, about 3-5 minutes.

In a separate bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
Add the dry ingredients to butter mixture. Mix until integrated. Stir in sugar. With an electric mixer on low speed, beat for 30 seconds. Turn the mixer up to medium speed and beat for 2 minutes. Add the egg whites. Beat for 2 more minutes. Stir in the crushed cookies.

For frosting, we used this recipe and crushed up some Oreos and mixed them in as well.

    This is a really interesting recipe. I haven’t seen dulce de leche combined with chocolate very often. I can see where you wanted to have the color contrast with the ganache, but I personally think it looks great as it is.

    They look amazing! If you don’t want to wait 3 hours for dulce de leche you can use the microwave method found at http://www.cookingforengineers.com/recipe/255/Dulce-de-Leche.
