Did you know that December 16 was National Chocolate-Covered Anything Day? How did you celebrate?
I confess this holiday caught me by surprise and it took me a couple of days to find a suitable way to indulge. However, thanks to the mobile bakery Cookies Your Way based in Corona, California I succeeded.
You see among their cookies, brownies, and bars, they also serve Dippity Do Dah Cupcakes. The name sounds like a Disney song and the description like music to my ears – chocolate covered cupcakes.
As one of their followers on Twitter, I’d been watching their truck’s schedule for a few weeks, but my timing never aligned. I was beginning to think I’d have to wait until next year, and then an impromptu event was announced.
Finally, the chocolate-covered precious would be mine.
The Cookies Your Way ladies had three flavors for me to choose from – chocolate, vanilla and red velvet at $3.50 each. The chocolate and vanilla cupcakes were covered in milk chocolate, while the red velvet was covered in dark.
Since dark chocolate isn’t my preference, I opted for the milk chocolate cupcakes.
At home, I couldn’t tell the flavors apart. The packaging wasn’t labeled and in the excitement of my reconnaissance, I forgot to ask.
Seeing as I wasn’t sharing either, I guess it really didn’t matter, so I picked one and took a bite.
Oh, I have another addiction, I thought to myself.
The layer of milk chocolate was thick. The chocolate cupcake was flavorful and incredibly moist. If you’re familiar with cake balls, it was similar, only better.
I stopped midway and switched to the vanilla cupcake. I liked it even more!
The classic combination of vanilla and chocolate is a longtime favorite, and this one was wonderful. I adored the moist vanilla cake surrounded by the layer of rich milk chocolate.
I had zero self-control with these cupcakes. I finished both… Unless you’ve had them, please don’t judge me.
I give Cookies Your Way 4 out of 5 stars for their Dippity Do Dah Cupcakes.
I’ve seen photos of other cupcake flavors, such as Lemon. I will definitely be stalking, I mean watching their mobile bakery for more.
