Intro: Mocha Cookie Crumble Cupcakes

Every time Starbucks comes out with a new drink, my daughter and I just have to have a "date" to try it out.  It is such a fun way for us to spend time together.  Our latest venture to get coffee had us trying the new Mocha Cookie Crumble.  Boy was it good!  So sweet and delicious!  Although I have to say anything with chocolate cookies crumbled on top is a winner in my book.  I came home and knew that we needed to turn the drink into a fun cupcake.  

Start by using a mixing a chocolate cake mix with 1 cup brewed coffee that has been cooled, 4 eggs, 1/4 cup yogurt, 1/3 cup melted butter, and 1 small instant chocolate pudding mix.  Beat the ingredients for 1 minute on low and then 2 minutes on medium high.  The batter will be very thick.  Stir in 2 cups chocolate cookie chunks.  Fill your muffin liners 1/2 full and bake at 350* for 18 minutes.  Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack.

While the cupcakes are cooling, let's mix up our butter cream.  In a mixing bowl beat 1/2 cup butter (softened), 1/2 cup shortening, 1/8 teaspoon salt, 1 tablespoon coffee extract, and 4 tablespoons mocha coffee creamer until creamy.  SIft together 1/4 cup dark cocoa powder with 4 cups powdered sugar.  Slowly add to the butter mixture until all is incorporated.  Beat for another minute or until creamy.  Use decorating bags and tip 27 to frost cooled cupcakes.  Sprinkle with 1/4 cup crushed chocolate cookie crumbs.  Decorate with a fun straw.  This makes about 30 cupcakes.  (If you like your frosting to be very thick, double all the butter cream ingredients.)
