Oh my, oh my...
These are one of the best cupcakes I have ever tasted.
I have decided that I can never go back
to a regular cupcake.
I have to have something in the middle!
First... it was the Oreos.
Now... it's the cookie dough.
These were soooo easy to make.
My hubster took them to work
and they were a SMASHING hit!
I found the recipe here...
but I'll share it with you...
For the cupcakes:
Use a white or vanilla cake mix (I used white...) and bake as directed.
When they are done baking, remove them from the oven
and let them cool for a couple of minutes.
For the filling:
2 sticks of butter, softened
3/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. brown sugar
4 TBSP milk
1 TBSP vanilla
2 c. all purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 c. mini chocolate chips
Combine the butter and sugars in a medium mixing bowl
on medium speed until it's creamed together.
Beat in milk and vanilla and mix well.
Mix in the flour and salt until it's just combined.
Add the chocolate chips and stir well.
Place the dough in a piping bag (without a tip in it) and set aside.
After the cupcakes have cooled for a couple of minutes, but are still warm,
take a large piping tip and core out the middle of the cupcake.
Pipe in a little cookie dough while the cupcakes are still warm.
Let the cupcakes cool completely.
Once they are cooled,
you can frost them with your favorite vanilla buttercream frosting.
I just used some frosting from a can...
I wasn't in the mood to make some fresh frosting. :)
However, the canned frosting was a little goopy,
and wasn't ready to pipe, so I added some powdered sugar
until I got the consistency I wanted.
Sprinkle with some mini chocolate chips,
and you are good to go!
