Is it a cookie? Is it a cupcake? Does it ever have to be only one thing? One of my go-to cupcakes for impressing people, I swear this cupcake tastes EXACTLY like a chocolate chip cookie, right down to the cookie dough frosting.
Ingredients: (makes 12 cupcakes)
- 1 1/2 sticks of butter (3/4 cup)
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla (added into the milk)
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Beat butter and eggs until light and fluffy. Mix in the eggs one at a time, beating after each one.
Add approximately 1/3 of the dry ingredients into the egg mixture. Mix until just combined, and then mix in half the milk and vanilla mixture. Repeat by alternating dry ingredients and wet ingredients until its all combined, always starting and ending with the dry ingredients. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Cookie Dough Frosting
- 3/4 stick of butter (1/4 + 1/8 cup)
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons icing sugar
- 1/4 cup flour
- pinch of salt
- 3/4 tablespoon milk
- 1 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
- Chocolate chips to top
Beat butter and brown sugar until cream. Add icing sugar until its smooth. Beat in flour and salt, and finally mix in the milk and vanilla until it forms a smooth frosting. Frost the cupcakes, and add a few chocolate chips on top.
