Connor loves chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream so I thought it would be fun to make Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with Chocolate Chip Cookie Cough Icing.

I made the cupcakes and Connor was in charge of icing the cupcakes.  Then we decided it would be fun to add even more chocolate chips to the top of them.

Can you ever have too many chocolate chips?
