It was time for another bake sale at work and I decided to be adventurous. This was, of course, after I had already made the obligatory chocolate chip cookie sandwiches. Plus I think these healthier hostess-like treats are just adorable and I couldn’t wait to attempt to recreate them.
I’m still not a fan of the BabyCakes cupcakes, but with the filling inside these babies it did help keep them moist!
Unfortunately I made this batch before I perfected the half-batch-in-the-Vitamix approach, so the chocolate frosting didn’t turn out so well. The recipe calls for vanilla frosting on top, so perhaps I brought this curse upon myself. Anyway, without chocolate frosting I improvised with a fudge frosting made mostly from melted chocolate chips. I thought this ended up being more hostess-like anyway.
Could have been better, but I was tired and have all but given up on the BabyCakes cupcake. Still a few to go in the book, but probably won’t be making these babies again. Sad… they have such cuteness potential!
This being Thanksgiving week you should look forward to not just one but TWO new recipes this week! That’s right… making up for lost time here!
