Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

Oh mama mia, you are going to love these cookie dough cupcakes! When we were in Chicago for Kevin’s birthday, we ran into this little bakery  that had cookie dough cupcakes. Yes, cookie dough in the cupcake! Hallelujah! I couldn’t figure out how the cookie dough was still, well, dough, inside a baked cupcake, until a sweet Facebook  friend Denise informed me that you freeze the dough in advance so it doesn’t bake inside the cupcake. Brilliant! Thank you Denise!
I immediately and profusely professed my undying love for Denise, but I haven’t heard back yet.
I’ll keep you updated on that.
So, you totally have to try these! Take your favorite vanilla cupcake recipe and fill your muffin tins 2/3 full. I used a 3 tablespoon scoop  and it turned out to be just right.
The cake part itself is not actually the dominant flavor of these cupcakes, so if you wanted to use a box mix for these cupcakes, no one would ever know! :) Or you can try doctoring up a cake mix like this . How good would a vanilla cake mix with white chocolate jello pudding be?? :)
Here’s my frozen cookie dough. Make these the night before so they are good and frozen. I used my favorite cookie dough recipe for this. I never want to bake it, so I figured it’d be perfect for these cupcakes. :)
For this application, I substituted the eggs with milk (1 egg = 2 tablespoons milk.) and used mini chocolate chips.
Now here’s the totally cool part. You just plop the frozen dough right on top of the cupcake batter. For real!
And you will not believe how these come out of the oven…
Just. like. this. Seriously, right? You can’t tell at all! Love it!
There is some very yummy cookie dough hiding in here.
Hello, love. Can you see the little heavenly bites of goodness peeking through?
Now when I read about this Cookie Dough Buttercream Frosting , I was so all over that.
I totally had to try it. It’s everything you love about buttercream… heavenly, light, whipped, buttery…
And it tastes JUST. like. cookie dough.
Cookie dough. Frosting!
I am in love.
I am in love.
I am in love.
I am in love.
I am in love!
Now I know you want to see how it looks on the inside! :)
Smoosh! Cookie dough, baby!
Next time (oh there will so be a next time) I am going to try shaping the cookie dough in tubes. I’m betting it’ll turn out more like these .
Oh, and see these cute little cupcake holders? :) I made these using the Silhouette . So fun!
I printed out cute cupcake paper  from my digital scrapbooking stash, but I also just saw some really cute cupcake paper at Hobby Lobby. Then I found this free cupcake wrapper  pattern and converted  it for use on the Silhouette. Or there are tons of really cute cupcake wrappers in the Silhouette store, too!
There’s still time to enter the giveaway  (ends Wednesday night) so head on over there and check it out! :)
Enjoy these cupcakes! :)
