Strawberry Lemonade Cookie Cupcake Recipe

I want to make cupcakes for a family get together. I also want to jazz them up a bit because, well, I’m me. I spied cookies at the grocery store when it hit me – I can bake those cream filled cookies into my cupcakes!

Lately, I’ve been dabbling with cake mixes because it is easier to swap out the dairy ingredients for my food allergy than baking a cake from scratch. So while I’m using a white cake mix for this recipe, feel free to use your favorite white cake recipe if you like.

This recipe couldn’t be easier! I’m using Strawberry Lemonade Trader Joe Joe’s in this example. Strawberry Lemonade is a seasonal flavor. If you can’t find it, you can use your favorite sandwich cream cookie that you can buy here. (Disclosure: I am including affiliate links for your convenience.)

You will need the following ingredients for this unique cupcake recipe:

White cake mix – you can buy white cake mix here

Cake mix ingredients – whatever the mix you are using calls for.

1 cup of crushed sandwich cream cookies

Frosting – I am using my dairy free“buttercream” frosting recipe

Step by Step How to Make Cupcakes

1.Make the cupcake batter according to the directions and with the ingredients your cake mix requires. I recommend using a batter bowl with a lid like this one because it makes it so much easier and less mess to pour batter into a cupcake pan.

2.Crush the sandwich cookies. I put my cookies in areusable silicone sandwich bag similar to this one, sealed it, and used a rolling pin to crush the cookies into chunks. I like the silicone bags because they are sturdier than thin disposable sandwich bags that can develop holes while crushing the cookies (ask me how I know.) Silicone sandwich bags can be cleaned by popping them in the top rack of your dishwasher.

3. Add and thoroughly mix 1 cup of crushed sandwich cream cookies to the cake batter.

4. Line a cupcake pan with cupcake liners. When I take cupcakes to a party, I use fun paper cupcake liners like these If I’m making cupcakes for home, I find thatreusable silicone cupcake liners like these pay for themselves in the long run.

5. Bake the cupcakes in a 350 degree (F ) oven for 16 to 18 minutes or when an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

6. Allow the cupcakes to thoroughly cool before frosting and topping them with a sprinkle of crushed cookie.
