Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

As I posted last week in A Christmas Tale, I owed a huge pay back to my current training class. They did, after all, help me obtain the much desired Lalalopsy Silly Hair Doll for The Short Chic for Christmas.

So pay back came today, in the form of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes.

Oh, they were good. And they came with a little surprise tucked inside all that yummy yellow cake.

A nugget of chocolate chip cookie dough! Who would not love that?

So, let me tell you all how I made these, so you too can enjoy the cupcakes.

I started off with a simple yellow box mix.
To that mix add:

4 eggs
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup milk
1 cup sour cream
1 package dry vanilla pudding mix

Mix that well. Next, I used pre-made chocolate chip cookie dough. I actually planned ahead and froze that cookie dough.

I put the cupcake liners into my pan, added the batter, filling the liners about 3/4 full. Next, I cut the cookie dough into little squares and sat a square on top of the dough. Just like the photo below.


Then I baked them at 350 degrees for 16-18 minutes.

After they cooled I made up some Brown Sugar Buttercream Frosting and decorated.

To make the Frosting:

3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
3 sticks of butter, softened
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Combine the butter and brown sugar in a mixing bowl and cream on medium-high speed until light and fluffy.  Beat in the powdered sugar until smooth. Beat in the salt, milk, and vanilla extract until combined and smooth.

Frost the cupcakes and top with miniature chocolate chips.

This recipe originally came from Chef In Training. It was the very first thing I ever pinned on Pinterest. God bless them for making everything from scratch. As you can see, I found a much easier way of making it that works for me and my busy life!

My Weekend Project: A PVC Camping Lamp Post and Flag Holder

I have seen a few of these around campsites and I knew I would like to have one. The only problem that I had is The Husband.

He already thinks we drag too much stuff with us when we go camping and if I had told him my desire to have a PVC Camping Light Pole he would have shut it down quickly!

So, that leaves a girl with only one choice: Figure out how to do it by herself.

I did some internet searching and found a few road maps on RV forums. They seemed easy enough!

I visited the local hardware store for the supplies:

An exterior post lantern light2 inch PVC pipe (I used 5 feet but had to purchase a 10 foot piece)A 3 inch toilet flangeA 3 inch to 2 inch ReducerPVC GlueA 12 foot electric cord kit2 - 3/4 inch PVC Caps I also used a few supplies we already had on hand:

White Spray Paint

The first step was preparing the lantern light. I could only find black in the store and I knew I wanted all white. I covered the gla…

Camping Activity: Wood Chip Necklaces

My worry in taking a wide range of kids camping is that the younger kids would be happy just playing together but the older ones, the one's in that awkward pre-teen/teen age, would think everything was so uncool they would just sit around and mope. So I designed a few activities that would hopefully get them up, participating, and moving.

 I came home from work a few weeks before the Family Camp-out and found my neighbors had trimmed their tree limbs and piled the mess in my yard. I refrained from getting angry. Over a nice dinner, I asked The Husband to help me with a little project.

He looked at me in disgust. I was pulling him away from ESPN to help with an unnecessary camping craft.

 I admit I did some begging. In the end, The Husband borrowed his father's chainsaw and decided to help me cut medallions out of a limb.  His mood started changing, quickly.{I then begged him to let me try my hand at the chainsaw, but he would not let budge on that one. I had to settle for hol…

Hand Made Gifts: Tutu Ornaments

My  Short Chic is turning into a little dancer. To thank the dance teachers for their help, we decided to make them a little gift for Christmas. A tutu ornament.

Supplies needed:

Tulle. I selected black, white and hot pink. The pink and white both have glitter {I have been walking around for the past four days with glitter all over me!}. Glass Ornaments that coordinate with your tulle. Some kind of string {I used stretch magic}. And some super glue.

Step 1: Cut  the tulle. 

I learned, from trial and error, that my cell phone was roughly the right size. So, I used it as a template for cutting the tulle.  
Step 2: Tie the tulle to the string.

Using a simple slip knot, tie the tulle onto the string {or Stretch Magic}. I think I used about 40 loops per ornament.
Step 3:  Adhere it to the Ornament.
I do not have a photo of this step. But simply, you take some super glue and glue the tutu ring to the ornament. 
FINISHED!  Once the glue is dried, you are finished. {Well except the wrapping!} I …
