Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Chocolate Cupcakes

These are the cupcakes I made for the 4th of July. The cupcakes were good, but I thought the cookie dough was a little too sweet. The cookie dough frosting was out of this world delicious.

The chocolate cupcakes were made from my own recipe. You can use any chocolate cake recipe or even a chocolate box mix.

Seriously, the frosting was amazing.

COOKIE DOUGH FILLING: (Adapted from RecipeGirl)

3/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/8 teaspoon baking soda

1/8 teaspoon salt

4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

2 tablespoons granulated white sugar

2 tablespoons milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips

Directions:

In a small bowl, mix the flour, baking soda and salt with a whisk. In a medium bowl, use an electric mixer to mix the butter, sugars, milk and vanilla until blended. Stir the dry ingredients and the chocolate chips into the wet ingredients. Refrigerate for 15 minutes, or until the cookie dough is firm enough to scoop. Scoop 1 1/2-2 tablespoons of cookie dough and place on a cookie sheet. Freeze for about 20 minutes or until firm.

Once the cookie dough is firm, place one cookie dough filling in a cupcake liner and pour enough cupcake batter to fill about 2/3 up the liner. My first batch had too much batter and caused huge cupcake tops. The second batch, I filled the liners with slightly less cupcake batter and they turned out great. You can always test a couple of cupcakes to figure out how much batter to use. I baked the cupcakes for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees and they turned out perfect. When you test the cupcake for doneness, make sure you place the toothpick in the cupcake only and not into the cookie dough.

Frost your cupcakes once they have cooled completely.

    1. Ahh, that sounds delicious. I love chocolate and peanut butter. I made peanut butter filled chocolate cupcakes earlier this year http://tiny.cc/p1uujw. The peanut butter balanced the chocolate perfectly.
