Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes Recipe

Ok, these cupcakes are kinda to die for. I developed a soft sweet white chocolate cupcake with a egg free cookie dough frosting that is perfect with a mini chocolate chip cookie on top.

Grab the kids and treat yourself to one of my new favorite cupcakes. I absolutely LOVE these liners by Reynolds. I find them at my grocery store, but just in case, here’s a link for ya!

Hope you enjoy!

Forgive my lack of step by step photos for this recipe. Lucky for you, it’s practically a one bowl cupcake, so no worries!


Be sure to pick up some mini chocolate chip cookies and mini chocolate chips from your grocery store to garnish your cupcakes. I used these adorable swirl chips that my father-in-law sent me from a Sprouts in Mesa, AZ, however you can use any mini chocolate chip 🙂

  • Oven


White Chocolate Cupcakes

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup granulated sugar can be reduced to 1/2 cup
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Cookie Dough Frosting

  • 1 stick unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1-2 tbsp milk if needed to thin out dough
  • mini chocolate chips
  • mini chocolate chip cookies for garnish


White Chocolate Cupcakes

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line12 cupcake cups with paper liners.
  • In a large bowl, add the flour, salt, baking soda and sugar. Stir to combine.
  • Place white chips into a medium ramekin and microwave until melted and smooth, about 60 seconds.
  • Add eggs, sour cream, oil, vanilla and melted chocolate to dry ingredients, stirring until combined. Fill liners 3/4 full with cupcake batter and bake for 15-18 minutes or until baked through. Let cool completely.

Cookie Dough Frosting

  • Place butter, sugars into a stand mixer, beat for 3 minutes, until light and fluffy.
  • Add vanilla, flour and salt to mixer. Beat until well combined. Add milk to thin out frosting if desired. 
  • Frost over cool cupcakes, sprinkle with mini chips and a mini chocolate chip cookie.


Please make sure you do NOT use an electric mixer. Just stir by hand and only until just combined. Be sure to only fill your cupcake liners 3/4 full and be sure to cook until golden. If you don't bake long enough centers will fall.
