Cookies and Cream Frosting

Hi friends! You are in for a treat today! I’m sharing my favorite frosting recipe today, Cookies and Cream Frosting.

Have you ever tasted cookies and cream frosting recipe? It’s mouthwatering.

Sweet and Delicious Cookies and Cream Frosting

Yesterday, I shared my daughter’s sweet Milk & Cookies first birthday party. To go along with the theme of the party we served yummy chocolate cupcakes with a delicious cookies and cream frosting! YUM!

One of my favorite ways to cut corners for parties is to use a box cake mix for the cake or cupcakes and then make the frosting for scratch. That’s exactly what I did for these cupcakes. I grabbed an easy devil’s food box cake mix for the cupcakes then whipped up a really yummy cookies and cream frosting for them!
