Cookies 'n Cream Muffins

I mentioned that I love any excuse to bake right? So it's only fitting that during the holidays I try to churn out as many awesome baked goods as possible. I know that Cookies 'n Cream Muffins do not sound overtly festive, but that can easily be fixed by these:

They're adorable, festive, and uber cheap at my favorite store to pick up baking supplies: Aldi.

Now that we have that squared away, can I tell you how long I've waited to test out this recipe? It's been sitting on my iPhone just begging to be baked for almost two months now. Two months.

Ladies and gentlemaen: the Cookies 'n Cream Muffin

Inside Bowl Number 1: Our Dry Ingredient Mixture (Flour, Sugar, Baking Powder, Salt and Cocoa)

Inside Bowl Number 2: Our Wet Ingredient Mixture (Milk, Oil, and Eggs)

Inside Bowl Number 3: Our AWESOME Ingredient Mixture (White Chocolate Chips, Milk Chocolate Chips, and Crushed Oreos)

Add Bowl #2 to Bowl #1 and Mix until Just Combined. Gently Stir in Bowl #3 and then fill each cup in the muffin pan 3/4 of the way full.

Bake for 14-17 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

Then proceed to dig in!

How can I best describe these to you my lovely readers? Let's pretend chocolate chip cookies can go on steroids, become the size of muffins, and do so by ingesting a diet of white and milk chocolate chips and Oreos. Sound enticing?

I thought so.

Oh, and the original recipe only yielded 9 muffins (how can you be content with only 9?) so I've included the recipe in its original ratios but multiplied by 4 in order to yield 3 dozen, a number I myself find much more saisfying.
