Cookie Dough Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

When it comes to cupcakes, you don't need to ask. I will be the one who will voluntarily eat them all. It sounds selfish and overindulging cupcakes lover, but if these delightful desserts your guilty pleasure, I don't blame myself for losing control a bit, or a lot, especially when it comes to Cho-co-la-te desserts. Oh, how Chocolate can be so cruel and delicious at the same time?! When it comes to chocolate desserts, I feel like I was back in my teenage year dealing with my ex-boyfriend, you know he was no good for you, but he was so irresistible at the same time! Urgh!!!

My sister is the baker in the family; I, myself, like to eat them. From now and then, I'll drop her a call and ask if she would bake something sweet for me. And today, I bring home mouthwatering delicious Cookie Dough Chocolate Chip Cupcakes, and with her permission, I would love to share this recipe with you.
