At the beginning of the year I shared with you all a special indulgence: Candy Bar Pizza. I told you that this is the dessert I turn to for comfort, but what I left out, this is really the dessert I turn to for a lot of reasons, some reasons that don’t even exist.

It’s been nagging at me for a while to transform these bar cookies into a cupcake, and they turned out just as tasty as the cookies with the added indulgence of being soft and fluffy.
