Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

This is an easy filled cupcake recipe. However, it does require some time. So PLAN AHEAD with this one.

This recipe features a vanilla cupcake with a ball of frozen cookie dough baked into the center of the cupcake. The cookie dough is nice and soft in the center so it tastes marvelous in the vanilla cake.

  • You definitely want to make sure the cookie dough balls are frozen solid before you bake them into the batter. I froze mine about 12 hours. Making  the cookie dough the night before breaks up the work quite a bit!
  • These cupcakes are simple to make. Just a basic vanilla cupcake filled with easy to make eggless cookie dough. 
  • Top them with super simple vanilla buttercream frosting.
  • Add a few randomly sprinkled on mini chocolate chips and  you are there.

Frosting: I’ve included a video on how to make this frosting below

  • Beat the butter alone until it is pale in color, light and fluffy.
  • Add in the powdered sugar slowly beating until it is thoroughly mixed in.
  • Add the vanilla and the milk next, start with 3 tbsp of milk and test the consistency. I ended up using 4 tbsp of milk.
    I decorated the cupcakes with the swirl technique. I used a Wilton 2D tip and mini chocolate chips on top. I demonstrate it for you in a video in this post.

Chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes with eggless cookie dough baked into the center of a delectable vanilla cupcake. This cupcake is choc full of mini chocolate chips and Topped off with a light and fluffy vanilla buttercream frosting. Yumm…

Ingredients

  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 2 sticks unsalted softened butter
  • 4 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 2-1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2-2/3 flour
  • 1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1-1/2 sticks unsalted softened butter
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp milk (more as needed)

Instructions

Cookie Dough:

  • Beat together butter and sugars in a large mixing bowl.
  • Beat until it is smooth and creamy.
  • Next, beat in vanilla and milk until smooth.
  • Add the flour and salt and beat until just combined.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips by hand (do not mix with the mixer)
  • Roll the dough into 1-1 1/2 balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Make 24 round balls, and cover with plastic wrap on cookie sheet.
  • Freeze for 12-24 hours or until frozen solid.

Cupcakes:

  • Preheat oven to 350 F
  • Combine the butter and brown sugar, beat until it is light and fluffy.
  • Mix in the eggs one at a time. Make sure you scrape the bowl down between additions.
  • Combine the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder in a medium bowl.
  • Alternate adding the dry ingredients to the batter with the milk.
  • Make sure they are completely mixed in.
  • Finally, blend in the vanilla.
  • Fill the cupcake liners 1/2 full. Place a frozen ball of cookie dough into each cupcake liner after you have added the batter. The cookie dough will stick out above the batter and that's okay.
  • Bake for 16-18 minutes or until the batter is light brown around the edge of the cookie dough ball.

Frosting:

  • Beat the butter alone for 2 to 4 minutes until it is pale, light and fluffy.
  • Add in the powdered sugar slowly beating until it is thoroughly mixed in.
  • Add the vanilla and the milk next, start with 2 Tablespoons of milk and test the consistency. I ended up using 4 tbsp of milk.

Decorating:

  • I decorated the cupcakes with a Wilton 2D tip and set mini chocolate chips on top. Watch the video for helps on the swirl technique.

Notes

Plan this recipe ahead to make it easy on you. Make the cookie dough a day ahead and freeze the cookie dough balls.

Can you use a box mix for the cupcakes and it will bake just as well?

Hi Sarah, I haven't used a cake mix in a really long time. So my answer here is "Probably." If you have a favorite vanilla cake mix give it a try. The odds are good it will turn out fine. Please let us know if you have success with a cake mix in this recipe. I'm sure our other readers will want to know. Best of luck and have a great day!
