Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes


 Even though cupcakes can't talk, they can seduce me like no one can

Now I would first like to say that two years ago, I didn't care for cupcakes. You gave me a cupcake, I would...*gasp* I don't know if I can even write this..turn it down. Why? You might ask? (And I would ask right now. What is wrong with you, seriously)

I can't actually answer that question. Maybe I've never tried one that was really spectacular before. Maybe I didn't like sweet things (don't worry, I've gotten over that phase. I have a massive addiction, although I don't think that's a good thing...)


 Now featuring cookies? Because I can


So this was my first attempt at making cupcakes. Ever. I think they actually came out as a success, I was quite pleased. 

Now just when you think these babies are unhealthy enough, the insides are filled with ooey gooey cookie dough. Now that's what I'm talking about. I was going to take a picture of the insides, but it slipped my mind when I had them in my hand. I couldn't help but gobble them up.


Now there's a whole family of them!



What you'll need:

Cookie dough:
-5/8 cup white sugar
-5/8 cup brown sugar
-2 tablespoons milk
-1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
-1 egg
-1 cup chocolate chips
-1/4 teaspoon baking soda
-1/4 teaspoon salt
-1/2 cup butter, softened
-2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Cupcake:
-3/4 cup butter, softened
-3/4 cup brown sugar
-2 eggs
-1/2 cup milk
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
-1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
-1/2 teaspoon baking powder
-1/2 teaspoon baking soda
-1/4 teaspoon salt

Frosting:
-1 1/2 cups butter, softened
-2 tablespoons brown sugar
-1 3/4 cup powdered sugar
-1/4 teaspoon salt
-1 tablespoon milk
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract

+mini cookies


Directions:

    1.   For the cookie dough: In a medium bowl, combine all the cookie dough ingredients together. Scoop into tablespoon balls, and place in a container. Freeze until solid, around 2 hours
    2.   For the cupcake: In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, milk and vanilla and mix well.
    3.   In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Slowly mix into the wet ingredients until fully incorporated.
    4.   Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Line muffin pans with paper liners.
    5.   Scoop 3 tablespoons of batter into each muffin cavity, and place the frozen cookie dough ball on top of the batter.
    6.   Bake for 16-18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted (into the side of the cupcake. NOT the middle, because the cookie dough will be gooey) comes out clean. Let cool on wire racks
    7.   Mix together the frosting ingredients. Pipe onto cupcakes and place a mini cookie on top
