I found the recipe in this book my buddy Regan gave me, it was a fundraiser for her husband's troops. I loooove recipe books, especially with a story.
I'll attach the recipe below. Basically, I took the tops off cookies and placed them at the bottom of the cups for 'crust.'
Add whipped cream and chocolate chips to the top if you've given up on diets all together. Otherwise, forget I ever said anything. These were actually really good, and they peels right off of the cupcake liners. I'm attaching the recipe below, but tfour things I adapted-instead of the crust (crushed oreos and butter) I just used the base of a cookie, I didn't need the pan (obviously), the liners worked well. I also halved the cream cheese batter (the full recipe is below), and it still made 16 cupcakes. Last, I reduced the baking time to about 45 minutes.
