Back in May, I was invited to the General Mills headquarters for a blogger event. It was a fun event where we got to sample some new products along with some recipes like these Chocolate Cherry Souffle Cupcakes from the Pillsbury Bake-off Contests. Pillsbury is part of the General Mills family and I was lucky enough to attend the 2013 Bake-off in Nevada this last fall and see the exciting even up close.
While at General Mills, we sampled 4 recipes from recently bake off contests. I plan on sharing those 4 recipe this week and letting you know what I thought of these prize winning recipes.
First up is a recipe from the 2013 bake off I attended. I would never think to grab a package of Pillsbury refrigerated cookie dough to make cupcakes, but that is exactly what Brenda Watts did to make these Cherry Chocolate Souffle Cupcakes. I love the combination of cherries and chocolate.
The cupcake uses Jif hazelnut spread to help change a cookie dough into a chocolate flavored cupcake. I was really surprised at how tasty these turned out. I definitely enjoyed these and kuddos to Brenda for such a creative way to make cupcakes.
