*The filling is lightly sweetened to balance with the sweetness of the cookies. You can add more sugar if you'd like a sweeter filling, but when tasting, try the filling on a cookie to get a better idea of how they work together. The same goes for the whipped cream. Add more sugar if you'd like a sweeter topping.
*You can top with mini chocolate chips or chocolate shavings. To make chocolate shavings, I simply used a vegetable peeler and scraped it across a thick bar of chocolate.
*For an extra hit of cherry flavor, you can drizzle a little bit of the maraschino cherry juice on top of the cupcake just before serving.
*If you want more filling and less cake, use only two cookies in each cup and just sandwich the filling between the two cookies. You may end up with less cupcakes since you'll need more filling in each cup.
