I first posted about Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Filled Cupcakes way back on my other blog in March of 2011. They were a huge hit then, and they are still a favorite recipe.
But those are from scratch, and well... I sometimes like to take shortcuts. Besides, I mentioned in my first post, the cake part of those cupcakes was a bit dry and crumbly. So recently when I decided to bake those cupcakes, I took a shortcut.
Instead of the flour and salt and baking powder and baking soda, etc... I opted for a Pillsbury Golden Butter Recipe Cake Mix. I followed my adapted Butter Cake Recipe, then added mini chocolate chips at the end.
After that, I the original recipe for the filling... you can see step-by-step photos of how to fill the cupcakes here... then topped it with the brown sugar cookie dough frosting.
If you like this sort of thing, you may also want to check out the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cake I posted... it's another very yummy variation.
