Brown Sugar Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Cookie Dough Frosting

67

My thought process for this recipe was that chocolate chip cookies have brown sugar in them, and what better to make as a base for the frosting than a delicious brown sugar cupcake. Both components, the base and the frosting are incredibly delicious. Note: The original recipe for the cupcakes made 12, but since the frosting recipe will frost two dozen cupcakes, I doubled the cupcake recipe to match. Feel free to cut the recipes in half if you are baking for a smaller crowd.
