Cream cheese filled Red Velvet cupcakes with Cookie Dough frosting

Yes, you read that right.

And yes, it is a mouthful, both to say and to eat.

I made these cupcakes after the thought of combining red velvet and cookie dough popped in mind while sitting in a math class – I remember studying for an exam and seeing a scribble about cupcakes on the side of my paper amid a sea of variables and statistics.

I used Sally’s Red Velvet Cupcake recipe – this was my first go at making red velvet cupcakes, so using hers as a base worked out well for me! (Tip: dye the batter orange first, then add the red food coloring afterwards!)
