Cookie Dough Chocolate Chip Cupcakes
When it comes to cupcakes, you don't need to ask. I will be the one who will voluntarily eat them all. It sounds selfish and overindulging cupcakes lover, but these delightful desserts are my guilty pleasure, so I don't blame myself for losing control a bit, or a lot (wink), especially when it comes to Cho-co-la-te desserts. Oh, how can chocolate be so cruel and delicious simultaneously?
When it comes to chocolate desserts, I feel like I was back in my teenage year dealing with my ex-boyfriend; you know he was no good for you, but he was so irresistible at the same time! Urgh!!!
My sister is the family's baker; I like whatever she bakes and eats. So from now and then, I'll drop her a call and ask if she would bake something sweet for me. And today, I bring home mouthwatering delicious Cookie Dough Chocolate Chip Cupcakes, and with her permission, I would love to share this recipe with you.
Oh, by the way, I forgot to put the frosting when we took this picture but believe me, the filling was delicious.
COOKIE DOUGH RECIPE:
1 cup mini chocolate chips
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
4 tablespoon milk
To make cookie Dough:
Put together butter and sugars in a mixing bowl and cream on medium-high speed for about 2 minutes or until light and fluffy. Add milk and vanilla, and beat until smooth. Beat in the flour and salt until mixed; add and stir chocolate chips. Scoop about 1.5 tablespoons of dough at a time. Place cookie dough on a parchment or foil-lined baking sheet. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze overnight.

Direction to make the cake:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line muffin pans with cupcake liners.
Combine all dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder, in the bowl and whisk until mixed well. Add oil and sour cream and mix it with a whisk. Gradually add water and continue to whisk.
Fill cupcake liners 2/3 full with batter.
Bake for 16-18 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
Remove from oven to a baking rack and allow to cool completely.
Make a hollow on the center of your cupcakes using a cupcake corer. Fill the center with cookie dough and frosting. Garnish with chocolate chips.
