Melissa's Cuisine: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

I signed up to bring a dessert for our last SEM meeting of the year.  I wanted something fun that the students would really enjoy.  These cupcakes were the perfect treat!  I made a bunch of mini cupcakes for SEM, and then I brought some to a friend who was having a bake sale for a mission trip to Guatemala, and I still had leftovers for Mike.  Good thing I saved some for him, because he loved these!  

These cupcakes really do have the taste of chocolate chip cookies, I love the addition of the cookie dough filling, and their presentation is quite nice as well.  I had fun making these and everyone had fun eating them!

Warning:  This recipe calls for a TON of margarine, so stay away if you're dieting! ;)

You will need:
For the cupcakes:
3 sticks margarine
1-1/2 cups brown sugar
4 eggs
2-2/3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup chocolate chips

For the cookie dough filling:
1/3 cup margarine, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
3 Tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

For the frosting:
2-1/2 sticks margarine
3/4 cup brown sugar
3-1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 Tablespoons milk
2-1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

1.  For the cupcakes:  Combine margarine and brown sugar in the bowl of your stand mixer.  Cream for about 3 minutes, until light and fluffy. 

2.  Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each egg is added.

3.  In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  

4.  Add a small amount of the dry mixture to the margarine mixture.  Then add some of the milk and alternate until everything is mixed together.  

5.  Mix in vanilla.

6.  Fold in chocolate chips.

7.  Scoop batter into muffin tins.  Bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes.  Cool completely.

8.  While the cupcakes are baking (or cooling) prepare the cookie dough mixture:  In a small bowl, combine margarine, brown sugar, and sugar until light and fluffy.  

9.  Beat in milk and vanilla.  

10.  Stir in flour and mini chocolate chips.  

11.  Scoop cookie dough into a pastry bag with a large tip (sorry, I don't know sizes!).  Poke the tip into the center of cupcake and fill with cookie dough.

12.  For the frosting:  beat the margarine and brown sugar until creamy and fluffy.

13.  Mix in the powdered sugar until smooth.  

14.  Beat in flour and salt.  

15.  Mix in milk and vanilla until smooth.  

16.  Scoop frosting into a pastry bag with a decorative tip.  Pipe frosting over cupcakes and garnish with mini chocolate chips.
