My obsession began with this lovely post from Kevin & Amanda for Amanda’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes.  They looked soooooo good and I began my quest for the perfect CCCD cupcake.  Little did I know what a challenge that would be. 

I followed Amanda’s recipe to the { T } and all I could manage was a cookie inside of a cupcake.  I didn’t want  a cookie… I wanted soft creamy dough!!!  So with a little tweaking and simplifying I came up with the WhipperBerry version with a little help from Amanda and Jenny from Miss Picky Palate herself.

To begin, mix up a batch of modified cookie dough originally from Picky Palate with the following recipe…

Cookie Dough

This recipe leaves out the eggs so you don’t have to worry about eating it raw.

  • 2 sticks softened butter
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 4 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips

Combine the butter and sugars in a mixing bowl and cream on medium-high speed until light and fluffy. Beat in milk and vanilla until incorporated and smooth. Beat in the flour and salt until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.


1 Box of white or vanilla cake mix {along with the ingredients for the mix}

I am all about simplicity… and quite honestly a basic cake mix is just fine for these cupcakes.  They’re so many other components you don’t need to worry about whipping out a fancy, made from scratch cake.

Bake the cupcakes as directed.  Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes.

How to Assemble your Cookie Dough Cupcakes

Here is where I diverged from Amanda’s recipe… She makes her cookie dough, freezes it and then bakes it along with the cupcake.  I found that this resulted in a partially baked cookie within my cupcake.  Here is what I do…

Using a large piping tip I core the cupcake after it has cooled for a few minutes.

I then pipe in some cookie dough when the cupcake is still a little warm. 

Let the cupcakes cool completely and then frost them with this Simple Vanilla Buttercream Frosting…

Sprinkle with some mini chocolate chips and there you go… a standing ovation worthy, SIMPLE Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcake!!

Thanks Divas for inviting me to stop by today!  Come on over to WhipperBerry and see what else I have going on…
