Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

Chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes are everything you could want in a dessert, plus more! Moist cupcakes with cookie dough truffles baked inside, then topped with a brown sugar buttercream frosting. Incredible.

A few weeks ago, I made a recipe from Culinary Concoctions by Peabody, a deadly and dangerous Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake.  In her recipe, she warns that there will be extra cookie dough truffles, and she was right. After a few days of hiding them in the freezer and being unsure of what I wanted to make with them, I decided to follow her lead and use the rest in cupcakes.

I’ve been dying to make (and eat) chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes, so this recipe was meant to be.

I sold the cupcakes at a bake sale for a previous employee of my store who has been battling cancer, and I raised $300. I was sold out long before we closed the store, and probably could have sold a ton more if I had been better prepared. I was proud of myself, though. I can always make improvements for the next time we need to raise some funds at the shop.

I omitted the chocolate from the cupcake recipe because I didn’t feel like a chocolate cupcake. Not sure what was up with that, but oh well, I live to break the rules. If you do refrigerate the buttercream frosting, give yourself plenty of time for it to come to room temp again before you try to pipe those cupcakes – trust me.

Ok, I think we’ve had enough calories this week to last us a long long time. So enjoy these cupcakes with me and hit the salad bar heavy on the weekend because next week… Next week is trouble. I promise.
