How to Make Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

Step-by-Step

  • 1Line a cookie sheet with wax paper.
    COOKIE DOUGH: Mix together all ingredients very well, put in refrigerator for one hour. Then make 1" balls, place on waxed paper lined cookie sheet. Put in freezer for 1/2 an hour.
  • 2In the mean time, preheat oven to 350, and line 24 cupcake holes with liners.
    CAKE BATTER: In a large mixing bowl beat butter and sugar until light, fluffy and pale in color. Add eggs one at a time, incorporating well after each addition. Add vanilla and beat 3 minutes on high.
    Sift together flour, powder and salt. Gradually add to batter alternating with milk. Fill cupcake liners 2/3 full and remove cookie dough balls from refrigerator and place one ball in the center of each cupcake, pressing down until half way under.
  • 3Bake in preheated oven at 350 for 20 min. Remove from oven when done and allow to cool in pans 10 min. then remove from pans to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
  • 4Frost with your favorite frosting. I used a chocolate buttercream. Garnish with a small cookie or a small cookie dough ball.
