Slice ‘n Bake Cookies Cupcakes

Slice 'n Bake Cupcakes

I was in the grocery store the other day when these made me stop in my tracks. I couldn’t help but laugh out loud. I mean slice ‘n bake cookies are one thing, but cupcakes… come on! So I tried to muffle my laughter and walked away.

Then I walked back. These were just too bizarre to pass up. So I figured I would try them out so you wouldn’t have to.

Let’s look inside and see what $2.99 got me…

Sliceable cupcake batter (I can’t wrap my head around this one), chocolate frosting, rainbow sprinkles and six white baking cups.

Okay, is it just me, or does this seem wrong. Wait, I think I can hear my stomach turning.

These cupcake chunks can’t possibly work. Could all my effort gathering ingredients, measuring, waiting for things to get to room temperature, mixing in just the right way and cleaning be for nothing. Could it be this simple?

Cupcakes
What?!?!?! I guess so.

Now for the frosting. Come on…come on…squeeze a little harder… you can do it.

Sprinkles & Cupcakes
Now I just need to add the sprinkles and voila…

Wow, they look kinda good. But what about the inside?

I give up! I wanted these to bomb, but they weren’t half bad. The inside was light and fluffy and the pudding-like frosting was, well… okay. I guess in a cupcake emergency, I might make these again. But only in an emergency. I have to draw the line somewhere you know. Now I have to go buy some break and bake chocolate chip cookies.

Got a guilty pleasure? Go ahead… spill it… you’ll feel better.
