Chocolate chip cookie dough and a cupcake in one. I like it. A lot. These have been around for a while but I’m just now getting around to making them. I was busy on the fondant scene for a while and I am also cutting out my cupcake business for a while to pursue another exciting adventure. So, I made these for fun…and for a great friend’s birthday! I wouldn’t have made these for just anyone, because they were a labor of love. However, she’s definitely deserving of chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes. And, she’s half way to 70 years old too. C’mon…that deserves a cupcake. And a dang good one. (I am also halfway to 70, and I definitely deserve a cupcake…or two…but only sometimes when I’m feeling really naughty.)
This cupcake is a brown sugar based cupcake with chocolate chips in it…tastes like a really soft chocolate chip cookie. And, then you make an eggless cookie dough to pop in the middle before frosting it. The frosting is TDF (“To Die For”, Mom). 🙂 Tastes like, you guessed it, cookie dough! I won’t go into how much butter is in this recipe, because that would be SOOOOO BORING. And, who wants to know that anyway??
But look at how purdy they are. I forgot to get a pic with the dough on the inside, because everyone was snarfing them down pretty quickly. Oops. I got this awesome recipe from The Girl Who Ate Everything. I am pretty sure she and I would be great friends, because I eat everything as well. Yes!
Here’s the link to her recipe: http://www.the-girl-who-ate-everything.com/2011/02/chocolate-chip-cookie-dough-cupcakes.html
So yummy! Happy birthday, Little A!
