Chocolate Chip Cookie Stuffed Cupcakes…


Good Monday Morning! Hope everyone had a great weekend, can’t believe we are already in a new week. My little snaggle tooth has a birthday this week, so we are excited to head back to Disneyland in a few days. He can’t wait for his free Disney Gift Card.

Ever since those darn Jr Mint cupcakes, I’ve been wanting to stuff more cupcakes. Can’t get enough of the darn things. Since I love chocolate chip cookies equally as much, I thought why not stuff some dough right inside and see what happens. Well, it’s no surprise that these were beyond yummy, we had no trouble eating our fair share! Good thing I was able to give most of them away, because you know what happens when goodies stay on the counter! We did some with cream cheese frosting and some with chocolate ganache. The cream cheese seemed to be most popular. You choose your favorite. Enjoy!!

    Ok, so thanks to your insanely awesome blog, I have not been doing well on my diet. ๐Ÿ™‚ We had family in from out of town and decided to make these delicious cupcakes. Wow, they are incredibly good! One thing though, the cookie dough sank to the bottom and didn’t stay in the middle. Granted, no one complained (or cared) because they still tasted like heaven.
    The cream cheese frosting was my favorite as well. Although the kids devoured the chocolate ganache ones. I even had extra cake batter (don’t know how that happened) so I scooped it into a pie tin and put globs of cookie dough on top and baked it. That turned out well and I ended up eating that more than the cupcakes because I could just take a small slice at a time so I didn’t feel bad (diet wise) about eating a small piece – but by doing that, I had no way of monitoring myself and will be doing extra running this week to burn it off. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’d like to know what cookie dough recipe you used for these, because like another poster, mine sunk where the cookie dough was and yours seem to have stayed level. I cheated and used pillsbury chocolate chip cookie dough. They tasted great, but would like to try again with a dough that wouldn’t sink as much. Thanks!!!

    I made these today and they are fabulous. I did the cream cheese frosting and just used the Pillsbury Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. SO good. Thanks!

    I am eating one right now…. omg it’s good! My co-worker managed to make them before I did and they are so good. very rich, but worth every bite! I have to say she used store bought cookie dough and maybe it is more dense b/c it kinda fell to the bottom, but still so yummy. And the cream cheese frosting… yum!

    OMG, awesome! These look sooooo good!
    I’m curious, the recipe you put together for the cupcake portion, is that how you always make cake/cupcakes? How does the consistency and texture of the cupcake end up? I’m so curious…
