Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

With Valentine’s Day coming up, my mind is on chocolate and desserts.  This chocolate chip cookie dough cupcake would be perfect to give to friends or loved ones that day.  It has all the flavors of a chocolate chip cookie with frosting.  What more could you want? How about a filling that pretty much is cookie dough, but without the raw eggs so it is safe to eat. This recipe is perfect for all the chocolate chip cookie lovers in your life.  And if you know anyone who isn’t a chocolate chip cookie lover, this just might change their mind.

  5. Whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a medium bowl.

  7. Add in the vanilla.
  8. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  9. Divide the batter evenly between the cupcake liners.
  10. Bake for 18-20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  11. Cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes, then transfer to wire rack until completely cooled.
  12. While the cupcakes are baking, prepare your cookie dough filling.

    Thank you, Geraldine! It was really fun to do, and not that hard. I used a large round tip and piping bag, and it goes very fast that way. You probably already know that, though. Your cakes are wonderful!
