Chocolate Chip Cookie-Cakes

It's almost the weekend!
Whoo Hoo!
And, I have a great idea
for all of you weekend bakers!

Who doesn't love Chocolate Chip Cookies?!
Chocolate Chip Cupcakes are even better, in my book!

But, I am one of those people who 
prefer cooked cookies to dough.
So, I wanted to combine the two
into one sock-it-to-me cupcake!


Have you tried
ONE BOWL CUPCAKE BATTER
FOR TWO?
Okay, well you totally have to!

Here is How Sweet It Is's Recipe:

1 egg white
2 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. butter, melted
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 Tbsp. milk
{I did leave out the milk so the chocolate chips wouldn't fall to the bottom}
3 Tbsp. chopped Ghiridelli 60% Cocoa chips. 
This recipe actually made 3 cupcakes for me since the liners only needed to be filled 1/2 full.

Then, I made the cookie dough. If you don't have a great Chocolate Chip cookie recipe, my best-ever recipe can be found here. Or, you could just use some store bought dough as well.

To assemble, first spoon batter into 3 cupcake liners - only HALF full. Place a flat round of cookie dough on top and cook at 350 degrees for 14-16 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when tested in the center of a cupcake and the cookie on top is browned.


Just look:


It's a cookie...it's a cupcake...

Now, for the frosting: 
I'd say to go with whichever is your favorite...in my house, we like
 Cream Cheese

2 oz. Cream Cheese
1 Tbsp. Butter, room temp 
Splash of Vanilla
Powder Sugar

Beat first 3 ingredients until well incorporated. Add sugar slowly until your preferred consistancy is reached. I also had some left over Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting, so I swirled them together!

{Buttercream or even this Cookie Dough Frosting by Cupcake Project will be great, too!}


These are perfect for all you chocolate chip cookie fanatics {like my hubby and me} out there! Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!! Enjoy and Happy Baking!
