Cookie dough cupcakes are a crowd pleaser like none other. One bite into that hidden cookie dough surprise will have everyone grinning.
When it comes to cookies, I’m a pretty big fan. I’m indiscriminate in my cookie love, loving pretty much any kind you put in front of me. The classic chocolate chip cookie tends to be my go-to cookie though. Fresh out of the oven and still warm, so good!
I’m also one of those people that likes cookie dough almost better than the actual baked cookie. Chocolate chip tends to be my all-time favorite raw cookie dough to devour too. There have been times when I find that by the time I go to bake the cookies, I’ve eaten half the raw cookie dough.
It’s just one of life’s little pleasures. So what if you took that little pleasure and hid it inside a fluffy cupcake? I like where this is going. Then perhaps we’ll top that off with a swirl of frosting and a little mini chocolate chip cookie. I’m thinking this is a bit of baking genius. This hefty dose of cookie dough sounds pretty amazing to me. I think you’ll agree.
I’ve paired my cookie dough explosion with vanilla cake. Vanilla is like a blank canvas that doesn’t take away from the star of the show. The prominent flavor here is definitely the cookie dough with a scattering of chocolate chips and hints of brown sugar. You can change this up in countless ways, though.
Perhaps you are a chocoholic. Make a chocolate cupcake to go with your cookie dough. That’s sure to be fabulous. Want that treasure tucked inside your cupcake to be a complete surprise? Don’t elude to it on the outside at all by removing that cute little cookie, although I really love it. Try changing up the frosting to chocolate or a swirl of both chocolate and vanilla!
Chocolate or vanilla, when you bite into these cupcakes you’ll find a beautiful ball of cookie dough right in the center that is sure to delight with each bite.
