 Calling all cookie dough LOVERS…..
 
Calling all cookie dough lovers...
 
 
 

I have been seeing these yummy Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes all over Pinterest.

 

I am one of those people who would much prefer to eat the cookie dough than the cooked cookie, so these Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes were a dream come true for me.

 

These cupcakes are quick and easy to whip up and will please any crowd, young or old.

 

 
But when would be a good time to make these cookie dough filled cakes? Little D had a birthday coming up!
 

That little munchkin is always stealing the balls of dough from my cookie dough icecream, so I new she would love them for her birthday.

 

She is still obsessed with Yo Gabba Gabba, so with a couple stickers & toothpicks,we had ourselves some fun Yo Gabba Gabba cupcakes!

(Original recipe found here)
Ingredients:
For the Cupcakes:
I box yellow cake mix
1-1/4 cups water
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
3 eggs 
1/2 cup chocolate chips
 
For the Cookie Dough Filling:
4 tbsp. butter, softened
6 tbsp. packed light brown sugar
1 cup + 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
7 oz. fat-free sweetened condensed milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
 
For the Frosting:
1/2 cup butter, softened
3 cups confectioners sugar
1-1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1-3 tbsp milk
1. To make the cupcakes, prepare as directed on the cake mix box. I substituted 1/2 cup of applesauce for the oil. Stir in chocolate chips. Bake as directed on the box mix…until lightly golden. Allow to cool completely.
 

2. To make the cookie dough filling, combine the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl and cream together
until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.

3. Slowly beat in the flour, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla and combined until dough-like.

4. Stir in the mini chocolate chips by hand. Cover and refrigerate until the mixture is firm, about an hour.

 

 

 

 

5. To fill the cupcakes, scoop out a small section from the center of each cupcake.

6. I used a TBSP measuring spoon that seem to take out just the right amount.

7. Fill each hole with a chunk of the chilled cookie dough mixture.

 

 

 

 
 

8. To make the frosting, cream together butter and sugar.  Add vanilla and 2-3 tbsp. milk.  Beat until frosting is light and fluffy.

 

Use leftover cookie dough to make mini cookie dough balls for decoration. You will have a ton of leftovers for that. Frost the filled cupcakes, and decorate with mini chocolate chips and mini cookie dough balls. YUM!
 
 
 
 
Happy Birthday Little D!

  1. mmm… i think i’ll just be making the cookie dough part of these bad boys. awesome!

  2. Yummy and love the Gabba Gabba decor :)
    PS love your dress too!

  3. There must have been a party in your tummy after eating those!!! ☺

  4. Oh COREY! These look amazing! :) cookie dough anything = rock my world!

  5. We love cookie dough cupcakes at our house, but when we make them we freeze the cookie dough balls and then just drop one into each cup of cake batter before baking. Because the dough is frozen to start, it thaws but doesn’t cook while the cake batter rises and bakes around the cookie dough…yummy!!!
