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
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
3/4 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).
