Cookie Dough Cupcakes

Good Morning!

I woke up today with a mission...bake, taste and review Cupcake Project's recently posted recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes!

These are Brown Butter Cakes with a Cookie Dough filling and topped
with Cookie Dough Frosting!

How fabulous, right!?!

So, do YOU want the recipe? Just click HERE.

My notes:
  1. I went with All Purpose Flour because one- I didn't need an entire dozen and two- that's what I had on hand...just beware, when you use All Purpose Flour, you'll end up with enough batter for only 6 cupcakes. If you want a full dozen, either double the recipe and use All Purpose or go out and buy some Self Rising.
  2. WATCH your butter!!! :) It brown's up quick!!
  3. I didn't measure out my chocolate chips for the cake batter- just poured until it looked like enough- but, for the measure'ers out there: it was probably about 3/4 cup.
  4. I didn't add the chocolate chips to my cookie dough right away either...I set a little dough off to the side in a clean bowl (for the frosting) before adding the chips.
  5. The cookie dough recipe I used was EGGLESS, so no worries on the sanitation end of things there! Want that recipe? Click HERE.
  6. I added about 2 heaping spoonfuls of my Vanilla Buttercream to the Cookie Dough Frosting...I wanted a "frosting" rather than an "icing." It turned out super smooth and tasty!
Are you curious yet about my thoughts?

I think these cupcakes could possibly be THE BEST, YUMMIEST, MOST DELICIOUS thing I have ever (in my very short 25 years) placed upon my taste buds! I mean, WOW!!

The cake is moist and sweet from the melted chocolate chips...the cookie dough reminds me of when I was a kid and would pick out all the little brown speckled balls from my ice cream...and the frosting tastes like smooth, rich cookies!!

Does it get any better than that? I think not!
Enjoy and Happy Baking!
