Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

Cupcakes:
1 box Butter Golden Cake Mix
3 eggs
1/2 C butter, room temperature
2/3 C water
1 tsp vanilla
1 bag chocolate chips

Make cake according to box. Add vanilla and chocolate chips. Preheat over to 375 degrees and bake cupcakes 20 minutes. Once cooled cut cones out of the tops (see pictures) for fillings.







Center Filling:
4 tbsp. unsalted butter, at room temperature
6 tbsp. light brown sugar, packed
1 cup plus 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
7 oz. sweetened condensed milk
½ tsp. vanilla extract
¼ cup mini semisweet chocolate chips

To make the cookie dough filling, combine the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl and cream on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the flour, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla until incorporated and smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips. Fill holes made in cupcakes immediately and top with cone (filling will be sticky but easier to manage).








Frosting:
3 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
¾ cup light brown sugar, packed
3½ cups confectioners’ sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
¾ tsp. salt
3 tbsp. milk
2½ tsp. vanilla extract

To make the frosting, beat together the butter and brown sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment until creamy. Mix in the confectioners’ sugar until smooth. Beat in the flour and salt. Mix in the milk and vanilla extract until smooth and well blended.


Frost the filled cupcakes as desired, sprinkling with mini chocolate chips or topping with mini chocolate chip cookies for decoration.

  1. These look delicious! But SO much goes into them haha. I'm kind of lazy when it comes to baking.

  2. It was amazing how easy they were. You could always go with a store bought frosting (I'd say stick with a vanilla)...and I've thought about the center (in my opinion these were SUPER sweet) but I think instead of cutting a whole and putting it in the center you could smear a layer on the top of the cupcakes (under the frosting) to give it the same flavor profile.
