Chocolate Cookie Dough Cupcakes

I made these the other day as well as my Sweet and Salty Cupakes (recipe soon) and they were a hit. :)

These cupcakes taste amazing. They're gooey, chocolatey, and have cookie dough, what more could you want? This recipe will make about 12 cupcakes. Enjoy! :)

Cake Batter: 
First off make a half batch of My Grandmother's Amazingly Moist Cake.

Cookie Dough:
Make a batch of chocolate chip cookie dough. I really love this chocolate chip cookie recipe- it makes amazing cookies: http://www.food.com/recipe/ooey-gooey-chewy-chocolate-chip-cookies-321715
But this time around make sure you make it WITHOUT EGGS.

Roll the cookie dough into balls like this- make a dozen:
(It helps if you put the dough in the fridge a little first.)
Leave some of the cookie dough out- we'll use that later ;)
Place the balls of cookie dough in the freezer. Make sure they're there for at least 2 hours. I like making the cookie dough the day before and freezing them over night to cut down on preparation time the next day. 

Cookie Dough Cream Cheese Frosting:
Start with a cream cheese frosting base. I like this one: http://justageorgiapeach.com/2012/03/13/the-best-cream-cheese-frosting-you-will-ever-taste.aspx
 Take any cookie dough you didn't use and add it to the cream cheese frosting. Mix thoroughly.





Putting Together:
Place cupcake wrappers in cupcake tin. Add a little bit of chocolate cake batter.
If you really don't want the cookie dough sinking to the bottom of the cup cake cook the batter for a couple minutes. I didn't bother to and they came out great.
Place frozen cookie dough balls in batter.
 Pour more cake batter on top to cover cookie dough.



Bake at 350 degrees for 16 or 18 minutes. Do not overcook! These are made to be gooey. If you leave them in too long the cookie dough will also bake.

Ice the cupcakes. I also added semi-sweet chocolate shavings on top as decoration.




I decided to just slap the frosting on the top in a mess instead of spreading it nicely to give the cupcakes a look of cookie dough. I wasn't going for pretty, but delicious-looking.


Enjoy! :)

Shortcut Section

Use cake mix in a box instead of from scratch. Buy cream cheese frosting. Buy cookie dough. (Note- it does say on the box that you shouldn't eat it raw- I don't know if that's a precaution or if you really should be worried.)
