Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

You guys. These cupcakes. They’d been on my radar to make for close to forever, but I always ended up opting out for another flavor whenever I made cupcakes. I finally got around to making them this week, and let me just say that I’m kicking myself for waiting so long!

I took my favorite vanilla cupcake recipe, substituting some of the regular sugar for brown. Then the cupcakes are filled with a delicious eggless cookie dough filling, and finally topped with a cookie dough flavored frosting.

A garnish of a mini chocolate chip cookie is the pièce de résistance that just sends it over the edge of cuteness. They’re basically a chocolate chip cookie dough bomb waiting to explode in your mouth.

So do yourself a favor, and don’t wait as long as I did to make these guys. They’d be so much fun for a little one’s birthday party!

    Have you made this as mini-cupcakes? If so, any changes required other than the baking time? Any other thoughts? Thank you, Laura.

      No, I haven’t made them as mini cupcakes. I think it would be hard to fill mini-cupcakes with the dough filling.

    OH! One more question, would you add nuts to the dough in the middle of the cupcakes? I just can’t imagine anything chocolate chip cookie-esque without nuts!

      You certainly could, but I’d make sure they were very finely chopped. You could also garnish with some chopped nuts to add some additional crunch.
