Chocolate Cookie Dough Cupcakes

Cookie dough is a favorite of mine.  So whenever I find a recipe that incorporates it I HAVE to give it a try!  Which is why this recipe had to be made A.S.A.P!  Cookie dough frosting??!!!  YUM!

I was not disappointed.  This cupcake was delicious.  I was a little concerned about the cinnamon in the cupcake & the flour in the frosting, but it totally works!!  (FYI, the cinnamon is not required...it just gives the chocolate a little kick.  You can use less or cut it out if it scares you!:))

Chocolate Cookie Dough Cupcakes
Recipe from Your Cup of Cake

Cupcake:
1 box devil's food cake mix
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon (optional)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup oil
3 eggs
3/4 cup buttermilk
3/4 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon vanilla

Cookie Dough Frosting:
3/4 cup butter, softened
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
2-3 cups powdered sugar
1-2 tablespoons milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line muffin pans with cupcake liners.

Combine all cupcake ingredients & beat for 2-3 minutes until smooth.  Fill cupcake liners 3/4 the way full, a large cookie scoop works well for this process. 

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out clean.  Remove from oven and let cook on a wire rack.

For the frosting:  Beat butter, cream cheese and brown sugar until smooth.  Add the flour and salt and mix until combined.  Add the vanilla and powdered sugar (I used all 3 cups).  Add milk to reach desired consistency (I just used 1 tablespoon).

Pipe onto cooled cupcakes and top with mini chocolate chips and a mini chocolate chip cookie.
