Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes are so many things I love in life - all rolled into a single cupcake (or two)! Buttery yellow cake with mini chocolate chips, filled with chocolate chip cookie dough, then topped with the best brown sugar cookie dough buttercream ever!
I first posted about Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Filled Cupcakes way back on my first blog in March of 2011. They were a huge hit then, but the cake was from scratch and it was a bit dry and crumbly.
So recently when I decided to bake them again, I took a shortcut. Instead of baking from scratch, I opted to make a doctored cake mix recipe, throw in some mini chocolate chips, and call it a day. For the cake, at least.
I still used the same recipes for the cookie dough filling and cookie dough frosting though, because why mess with perfection?
