Cookie Dough Cupcakes

What would it be like to put my favorite cookie and favorite dessert, the cupcake, together? The answer is wonderful, amazing, delicious. Try this out yourself. Fill cupcake liners 2/3 full (or 30 grams) with your favorite cake batter, drop your favorite cookie dough (1 T.) into the cupcake batter and bake 15-17 minutes in a 350° oven. Top with buttercream frosting, chocolate shavings and a chocolate chip. Two great desserts in one.

    I love it! Just curious, did the cookie bake through? It looks like it stayed so soft. I’m going to remember this one!

    I’m sure you could open a store and just sell those cookies and your business would be a success. Looks great!

    NICE! What a thought! And to think I have never seen this before. I will so try it. I would want the cookie to stay sort of doughy. Maybe underbake the whole thing a little? THANKS for a great idea.

    Nicole- I did try to under bake some and they “fell”. Try to par bake the cupcake and poke the dough down in there at the half way point and let us know what happens. I will bust if I make more anytime soon!

    I know this is a stupid question but where is the recipe?

    anon- You may use any cake batter recipe you’d like or even a cake mix. For the cookie dough, you may use your favorite cookie dough or this one:
    For the frosting use this one:
    By the way there is no such thing as a stupid question.

    I’ve seen some recipes for cookie dough cupcakes that call for freezing the cookie dough balls for a few hours before dropping them into the batter. That should keep the dough from baking through, in case anyone is still wondering 🙂 I plan to make these after Easter, but I won’t freeze my dough because I want it to be more cookie-y inside instead of doughy!

    I needed some inspiration for our school's bake sale – and yes, I knew I'd find the answers at TheBigRedKitchen… just how did you place the frosting so nicely on top?

    Theresa- I piped the icing on using a wide tip on my pastry bag. Yours will be great!!
