I have a slight obsession with mini things. Tiny things. Itty bitty things. I cannot resist baby feet. Unless they smell like feet.

I about lose it when a tiny little baby hand grabs my finger.  Let’s say it’s a good thing I am past baby making age; otherwise I’d be popping them out like gumballs.

What I’m most obsessed with are commercial products in mini form. I gotta have them all.

In my purse I carry a tiny jar of Vaseline. Because it’s mini.

I always carry a mini hand sanitizer. ‘Cause its mini.

Mini notebook. To jot down my inner most thoughts in 200 characters or less.

If I’m staying at a hotel I swipe all the tiny soap and samples.

If I order room service, I request extra jars of teeny tiny Tobasco sauce (OMG – they are so mini!) and mini ketchup bottles.

I saw a tiny bottle of Palmolive soap the other day and almost shrieked with glee. OK, I shrieked. It was so TINY!

Have you ever seen a tiny shopping cart? It’s the cutest thing.

I have a collection of homies – I mean, who doesn’t love two-inch figurines repping Chicano Mexican American characters? Yeah, I’m grown and I play with homies.

You may ask, where does my love of tiny things stem from?

Simple: I like to feel like a giant holding tiny things.

I think everyone does, to tell you the truth.

I don’t stomp around, yelling Fee-Fi-Foh-Fum. I’m not crazy. I just like holding tiny things and pretend I live in a world where I am, by far, the largest thing in it. There’s a fair bit of narcissism in that statement, I admit.

Now flow with me, let’s talk about these tiny cupcakes.

Mini cupcakes confirm everyone in the world wants to pretend they’re giant too. People will say eating mini cupcakes are strictly for portion control. It’s not. That’s a bold faced lie. If mini cupcakes were indeed designed for portion control – Why do we pop so many in our mouths, hmmmm?

Back to the cupcakes. I’ve been dreaming of a cookies –n– cream cupcake. The problem? I wasn’t sure I wanted the cupcake cookies –n– cream. Filling, sure. Frosting? Definitely. Cupcake? Not so much. So I settled on chocolate cupcakes using I Am Baker’s Ultimate Chocolate Cupcakes recipe with a few slight adaptations. In place of sour cream I used heavy cream and amped the vanilla extract.  I don’t melt chocolate and butter in the microwave for fear I may burn it. I dunno. I don’t trust myself around microwaves. I melt chocolate old school, a bowl over a pot of simmering water.

The cupcake batter comes together easily. And of course every cupcake needs frosting; otherwise it’s a damn muffin. My Cookies –N– Cream cheesecake filling from these delicious No Bake Cookies –N– Cream Cheesecakes was perfect.

Since we’re about the Halloween life, I thought it would be hella fun to top the cupcakes with cute Oreo bats. The bats are simple to make – A mini Oreo for the face, followed by Oreo halves for bat wings. And of course, candy eyes.

Aren’t they adorable?

Not only are they cute, these cupcakes are super tasty. You get 48 cupcakes to one batch of chocolate cake batter, by the way. Moist chocolate cake, combined with a cream cheese cookies –n– cream frosting mixed with crushed Oreos is all sorts of dreamy.
