Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes
I did not post the recipe before the Superbowl Pull Apart Cupcake Football but this is the recipe I used to make those. I wanted something a little more creative than a basic chocolate cupcake and I found this recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough + Cupcake at allrecipes.com
I used the idea and the portion of this recipe for the “cookie dough” center, but a different recipe to get my chocolate cupcake batter instead of a yellow cake mix as the recipe shows.
So, make your cupcakes however you prefer… from a mix or with your favorite recipe.
But first follow the recipe below to mix up the cookie dough for the center of each cupcake.
1/2 c. butter
1/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 c. flour
1 c. mini chocolate chips
Cream butter and sugars. Beat in egg and vanilla. Mix together dry ingredients and blend in. Stir in chocolate chips. Form dough into tablespoon sized balls and place on cookie sheet. Freeze for a couple hours.
Meanwhile prepare cupcake batter however you want and fill cupcake liners 2/3 of the way full. Drop a frozen cookie dough ball in the center of each cupcake. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes.
