Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

February 1, 2011

Remember when I admitted to being a cookie dough addict...

I am. So it was kind of a given that I would try this recipe.
Cookie dough and Cupcakes? I'm in! They are do yummy and gooey!

These cupcakes are a basic cake, with a cookie dough filling,
and cookie dough buttercream. Can you say toothache?


My twist on the recipe was that I used
  premade Tollhouse cookie dough for the filling.
I know, I know... You are all thinking, what about the eggs?
Well, I have come to the conclusion that I haven't gotten sick eating it raw yet so I am
 going to continue to do so. Plus, the cookie dough gets mostly cooked in the cupcake.

But, if you are worried about raw eggs just make your favorite
chocolate chip cookie dough and replace each eggs with 2 Tbs. of milk.

After you make your batter and filling, fill each wrapper up 2/3 of the way
  and then drop a piece of cookie dough on top.
It's magic, somehow when you bake the cupcakes the batter surrounds the cookie dough!

Bake. Cool. Frost. Garnish. Gobble.

Wow...I am so very impressed. That seriously looks and sounds like one of those cupcakes you'd see on cupcake wars (I'm only slightly addicted to that show :)). Great job.

Wow, your cupcakes look awesome! They're so pretty and that buttercream sounds absolutely delicious. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog right now called "Sweets for a Saturday" and I'd like to invite you to stop by this weekend and link your cupcakes up.

That sounds amazing. Tomorrow's valentines day so I might make these for my boyfriend :) Question, would it work just the same with a boxed cupcake mix?
