Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

Incredible Mind Blowing Dessert……….  These Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes are THAT good!

Oh yes! you read that right!  We made THE most amazing cupcakes back in November for my oldest daughter’s 23rd birthday!  She’s a huge fan of cookie dough and couldn’t say YES fast enough to Cookie Dough Cupcakes with Cookie Dough Frosting.

You may remember, the year before she picked Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies for her birthday dessert……are you seeing a pattern here?  How am I going to top these two cookie dough recipes for her next birthday?!

Well,  let me tell you, these cupcakes DID NOT FAIL!

They were so good……….I wouldn’t even call them cupcakes, it’s not a big enough title……….maybe something like “Incredible Mind Blowing Dessert”.…….yeah, I think that’s MUCH better. Because these are nothing like you’ve ever had before! If you or someone you know is a cookie dough lover, YOU MUST make these!

    These are absolutely some of the BEST cupcakes I have ever eaten!! The batter was as light as air. I have never seen batter that light & fluffy. If you love chocolate chip cookies, then you will love these cupcakes. This is as close to a real cookie as you could possibly get. The best part of this recipe? It is easy enough that my 12 old made them by himself!!

    I am looking to make these but am curious about the cookie dough filling. I am bringing them to a soccer game so they will be out for about 2 hours, will the filling get mushy? I just want to make sure they don’t melt! Thank you!

    I made this recipe and the cupcakes and the middles where great HOWEVER, this frosting was absolutely bad. The granulated sugar is all you can taste and does not blend in…I tried everything to get it too but it just doesn’t I had to throw it away and make a different recipes. So disapointing
