I had some free time last night so I decided to make some cupcakes for work! They are super easy and really quick to make! They are the Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes. It is a Chocolate Cupcake with Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough in the middle, topped with a Vanilla Buttercream garnished with Mini Chocolate Chips and a Mini Chocolate Chip Cookie!! Sounds good, right??
Here is what you need for the cupcake:
- Store bought Chocolate Cake Mix
- Eggs (depends on your cake mix)
- Oil (depends on your cake mix)
- Water (depends on your cake mix)
- Mini Chocolate Chips
- Chocolate Chip Cooke Dough (I used Nestle Break and Bake)
- Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies (I used Mini Chips Ahoy)
Preheat oven to 350°. Make the Chocolate Cake Mix according to the package. Fill Cupcake liners half way with the cupcake mix. Then add 1 chunk of Cookie Dough to each cupcake.
Bake for 18-19 minutes, depending on your oven. They will look like this when they come out.
While they are baking, make you Vanilla Buttercream.
Here is what you need:
- 2-3 tablespoons of Heavy Whipping Cream
- 2 Sticks of Softened Unsalted Butter
- 3-4 cups of Powdered Sugar
- 1 tablespoon of Vanilla
- 1/4 teaspoon of Salt
In you mixer with the paddle blade, whip your butter until smooth and fluffy.
On Low, add in the 3 cups of Powdered Sugar, Vanilla, Salt, and 2 tablespoons of Heavy Whipping Cream. Turn up to Medium speed and mix for 3 minutes until smooth. Depending on you consistency, you might need to add more sugar or cream. If the frosting is too thin add more sugar or if it is to thick add more cream.
Once the cupcakes have completely cooled, you can start frosting! I garnished the cupcakes with Mini Chocolate Chips and added a Mini Chocolate Chip Cookie to it!
These were so easy to make and took no longer then 30 minutes from start to finish. You should give them a try the next time you need to make a dessert!!
