Every bite of these is oozing with flavor and cookie dough-ness. These have a wonderful base, a filling and a frosting where every bite has a chocolate chip in it. Adapted from Annie's Eats.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To make the cupcakes, preheat the oven to 350°F Line two cupcake pans with paper liners (24 total). In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the butter and brown sugar. Beat together on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Mix in the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition and scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  2. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Stir together to blend. Add the dry ingredients to the mixer bowl on low speed, alternating with the milk, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients, mixing each addition just until incorporated. Blend in the vanilla. Fold in the chocolate chips with a spatula.
  3. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared cupcake liners. Bake for 18-20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan 5-10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. To make the cookie dough filling, combine the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl and cream on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the flour, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla until incorporated and smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until the mixture has firmed up a bit, about an hour.
  5. To fill the cupcakes, cut a cone-shaped portion out of the center of each cupcake. Fill each hole with a chunk of the chilled cookie dough mixture.
  6. To make the frosting, beat together the butter and brown sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment until creamy. Mix in the confectioners’ sugar until smooth. Beat in the flour and salt. Mix in the milk and vanilla extract until smooth and well blended.
  7. Frost the filled cupcakes as desired, sprinkling with mini chocolate chips for decoration.

These cupcakes were very tasty! :) The only thing I might not make next time would be the filling. My husband and I thought there was enough chocolate chip flavor throughout and it just didn't add any extra flavor. My husband's co-workers were surprised when biting into the cupcake to discover the filling. Overall, they are very fun and tasty. Thank you for the recipe! :)

My whole family loved these cupcakes. They really do taste like a cookie. I was worried that they were going to be too sweet, but they turned out to be perfect.

I ended up with 30 cupcakes instead of 24, so I ran out of filling but, maybe i just made smaller cupcakes.

Also, I kept the cupcakes in the fridge, they make a great cold treat.
