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.

[...] So school stresses me out. A lot. In some ways i’m kind of a perfectionist. I want everything to be as perfect as can be, including grades, so if I don’t get a good grade I get depressed and stressed and end up baking cakes and eating them all and… Ok it’s not quiet that bad but really, I don’t like school. Shocking right? I’m the first college student who’s ever said that before. It’s not like it’s even really that hard, it’s just the making myself study and do the work and all that. Then you think you studied as much as you possibly can and STILL end up with a less than perfect grade. It’s frustrating! So in times like those, I make a cake to celebrate how truly awesome and smart I am, no matter what my teacher or grades say! I’m fabulous and I know it! So for all you college/highschool students or even just hard working people out there, here is a truly delicious cake you can make to celebrate this glorious time of year we call the fall, and salute our teachers/bosses in our now filled out tight jeans! Because we’re worth it! Cake adapted from Magnolia Bakery Cupcakes. Recipe on Food Network here. Frosting adapted from the fabulous and talented Kita from Pass The Sushi. Recipe here. [...]
