 Chocolate Cookie Dough with Mint Chip Frosting!! From House of Yumm

Chocolate cookie dough with mint chip frosting.  That is all.  The end.  No other words needed.  This picture, that phrase speaks for itself.  In all seriousness though, this frosting idea, maybe, perhaps, the BEST idea I’ve ever had!  Whoever came up with the idea to leave out the eggs and make cookie dough edible is a genius.  And I want to give them a big hug!

When you have a big glob of delicious edible cookie dough, what is the logical thing to do with it?  Put it on a cupcake of course.  Next best idea ever.

 Chocolate Cookie Dough with Mint Chip Frosting!! From House of Yumm

With St. Patrick’s Day coming up it was only appropriate for me to put mint chips in the cookie dough, and what is mint’s bestest friend in the whole world?  Chocolate.  Of course.  The whole idea for this frosting was just one logical conclusion after another in my mind.  Are you following my train of thought??


As I stated before no other words needed.

    So yea, this frosting pretty much transcends words as you already said. I’m pretty sure that come one Saturday afternoon you will find me sitting and eating this with a bag of pretzels or animal crackers because cupcakes take too long. I may or may not be able to share with anyone else haha.

      Oh my gosh!!! This would be so good on animal crackers! And if you’re really desperate, just eat it off the spoon :) It is possible that’s what happened to most of mine.
