Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcakes

Ice Cream and summer - the perfect combination!

And now there is another perfect combination. International Delight and Cold Stone Creamery.

Say what?!?! heard me right.  

International Delight has just introduced their new line of Cold Stone Creamery coffee creamers, with delicious flavors like Hot for Cookie,

Founder's Favorite and Churo Caramel - yum!

They are also sponsoring a Pinterest Pin to Win Sweepstakes for a chance to win $400 towards throwing an ultimate summer ice cream social!


I'm sharing my Cold Stone Creamery Hot for Cookie Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcakes.

Say that five times fast :) 

I replaced the water in the cake mix and milk in the frosting with Hot for Cookie creamer to give it that extra cookie taste.

It tastes especially delish in the frosting!

Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcakes


1 box Devil's Food Chocolate Cake 

1 cup ID Cold Stone Creamery Hot for Cookie creamer

4 eggs

1/2 cup canola oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place cupcake liners into cupcake pan.
In a large mixing bowl combine cake mix, eggs, coffee creamer and canola oil with an electric mixer.
Beat for 2 minutes; occasionally scraping the sides of the bowl.
Using a large cookie scoop, drop batter into liners.
Bake for 18-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Place cupcakes on a wire rack to cool.

While cupcakes are cooling, make your frosting.
