Cookie Dough Cupcakes

There's nothing I don't love about cookie dough, I could eat everything cookie-dough related all day long. That's why I love these cupcakes so much! I discovered them through Pinterest and they happened to be from my favorite cooking site. I should have known. I have to warn you though, this is not something you make quickly. It might be my lack of organisation or just because I'm slow... or the fact that I can only bake 6 cupcakes at once but it took me a whole afternoon to finish these beauties. It was worth every second though. They. Are. SO. Good. I did change the recipe a bit (sometimes I'm just too lazy to go to the store to get the right ingredients) but it turned out okay. If you like the original recipe better, you can check it out here. You can find my recipe below:


Cupcakes (12)
  • 180 g butter
  • 160 g light brown sugar
  • 2 big eggs
  • 230 g all purpose flour
  • ½ ts baking powder
  • ½ ts baking soda
  • 110 ml milk
  • 1 ts vanilla extract
  • 80 g chocolate chips
  • pinch of salt
  • 30 g butter
  • 40 g light brown sugar
  • 70 g all purpose flour
  • 60 ml milk
  • ½ ts vanilla extract
  • chocolate chips
  • 120 g butter
  • 110 light brown sugar
  • 135 g powder sugar
  • 40 g all purpose flour
  • 3 tbs milk
  • 1 ts vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C.
  2. Let's start with the cupcakes: mix the butter and light brown sugar 'til creamy. Mix in the eggs one by one. Make sure the egg is fully incorporated in the mixture before adding the next one.
  3. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda en salt in a bowl and add it to the mixture bit by bit, alternating with the milk. So add one spoon of the dry mixture, then add a bit of milk, dry mixture, milk, ... until everything is in there. Add the vanilla extract and fold in the chocolate chips.
  4. Divide the batter in your cupcakes and put in the oven for 25 minutes.
  5. Next: the filling! While your cupcakes bake, you can make this. Mix the butter and light brown sugar 'til creamy (again), then add the flour, milk and vanilla extract. Make sure everything is well blended. Fold in the chocolate chips en cover with some plastic foil. Put in the refrigerator for about an hour.
  6. Last but not least: the frosting. Yet again: mix the butter and light brown sugar. Add the powder sugar and mix 'til creamy. Add the flour and the salt and finally, add the liquid ingredients (milk and vanilla extract). Mix everything until you have the structure you want (add some more milk or powder sugar if it's not exactly what you want)
  7. Now you still have to make one beautiful cupcake out of these three things. When your cupcakes have cooled off, use the 'cone method' to fill your cupcakes: cut a circle out of the top of your cupcake. Fill the little whole with a bit of filling. Cover it back up with the circle you just cut out and finish off with the frosting.
    If my explanation isn't clear (which I would understand), check out the original recipe. On the site there's a pretty good explanation about how to fill cupcakes.
