Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes


A while back, someone requested I make some cupcakes. I wanted them to be special, so I decided to make some cupcakes baked with cookie dough in them. They turned out wonderful, but I learned some lessons.

1) It is best to bake them a little less (maybe 5-6 min) than you would normally for cupcakes, only if you want the “cookie dough” taste to them. If you want the dough in the cupcakes to bake a bit more, leave them in the oven like you would normally.

2) Roll about a teaspoon of cookie dough and drop it into cupcake liners.

3) You will need to pour less batter because the cookie dough will take up more space.
4) Use any recipe of cookie dough that you love…normally, chocolate chip cookie dough is the best. You can even use pre-made dough!
5) For the frosting, I used regular buttercream frosting and sprinkled it with chocolate chips. However, you could try some cookie dough frosting.
6) If you are worried about eggs in the recipe for cookie dough, try going to the link above, which also includes an egg-less cookie dough recipe.
7) Enjoy!
