Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

Who doesn't love cookie dough?! I believe it makes everything better :)

These were thrown together to take to a friend's house for game night when I didn't have time to do anything else. Just dressing up a store bought cake mix :)

All you need is 1 chocolate cake mix and chocolate chip cookie dough (the "break in bake" kind from the store is what I used).
Prepare the cake batter (I used Devil's Food) according to the directions on your box. Pour into your cupcake pan and place a little spoon of cookie dough on top of each one. It's pretty easy if you buy the "break and bake" cookie dough and just use 1 square per cupcake.
Now, bake according to your cake mix and look how pretty they turn out...

Remove and let cool while you mix up your frosting. Now, no matter how short on time I am, I refuse to do store bought frosting. Sorry. Luckily I was able to whip up some frosting and ice them all as we were running out the door. Late, of course.
I cut my normal frosting recipe in half and just mixed up the following ingredients:
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1/4 cup crisco
  • splash of vanilla
  • splash of almond
  • about 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk (not quite sure on the exacts, I just pour in some milk until it gets to the right consistency)
Ice 'em up...
And check out the surprise that's inside!


  1. Oh my.... these look like heaven. I can't WAIT to try these for our next family get-together!
