Channeling Cinderella's Fairy Godmother

I do love the Disney classics. Cinderella is one of my favorites - her Fairy Godmother can do anything with a wave of her wand and now, so can YOU! Don't be afraid to go wild when you're baking. It's easy to turn a good ol' cookie recipe into a deliciously fabulous cupcake! One thing I like to do is take interesting flavors that I love in cookie form (Girl Scout cookies anyone?) and try to recreate them into cupcakes. Here are some examples:

According to Little Brownie Bakers, Samoas are tender vanilla cookies, covered with caramel, rolled in toasted coconut, and striped with a rich, chocolatey coating.

The cupcake version: coconut-vanilla cupcakes with caramel cream cheese frosting and chocolate and caramel drizzled on top.

One of my favs, Tagalongs: Tasty cookies topped with creamy peanut butter and covered with a luscious chocolaty coating.

The cupcake version: chocolate cupcakes with creamy peanut butter cream cheese filling and ganache glazing the top.

Thin Mints, one of the most popular flavors: A thin wafer covered with a smooth chocolaty coating. Made with natural peppermint.

The cupcake version: chocolate cupcake with chocolate-peppermint frosting and a half of Thin Mint to decorate.

Those are just a start; what kind of cookie would you turn into a cupcake?
