Dark Chocolate Sugar Cookie Cupcakes
Dark chocolate cake mix (along with the water, oil and eggs called for)
2 tsp. coffee extract
Mini chocolate chip cookies (24)
1 1/2 c. Sugar Cookie Crumble from the "Bark" recipe
1 container cream cheese frosting
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line two 12 count muffin tins with paper liners. Mix the cake mix, water, oil, eggs and coffee extract in a large bowl with a whisk until fully combined. Divide among the 24 cups. Place a mini cookie in the center of the batter, and push down slightly. Bake for the 19+ minutes that are called for on your cake mix box. Let cool fully on a wire rack when they come out of the oven.
Meanwhile combine the frosting and 1 c. of the sugar cookie crumble. Place in a piping bag with a larger circle tip on top (in case some of the cookie crumble is still in larger chunks). Pipe onto the cooled cupcakes. Sprinkle the remaining cookie crumble on top.
