Cookies 'n Cream Cupcakes

Mmm....mmmm....mmm!!  Yes, that's about all I can get out about these simple, YUMMY cupcakes!  Really, they are morsels of heaven in your mouth!  If you have ever loved cookies 'n cream anything (such as myself), make these!  You won't regret it!

These can be made in any pan size you wish, I just happened to be in a cupcake mood!  There will be quite a bit of frosting (perfect amount to frost a layered cake, but probably a bit extra with cupcakes) and if there's extra save it in the fridge for dipping graham crackers or whatever suits your fancy.  Not that I did that or anything...
