Day 27 – Milk and Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcakes

27 Aug

I’m sure (by this point) I don’t need to remind you that I love cookies.  Can’t pass em up, in fact.  Milk and Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcakes (recipe from raspberri cupcakes).  Cupcakes stuffed with cookie dough?!  Is this for real?!?!

Cupcake     Mini Cupcake

This cake is light and moist.  And tastes like a fluffy chocolate chip cookie.  I like the chocolate chips cause they break up the smooth sweetness of the cake.

Cookie dough filling

full-filled    mini-filled

Forget it.  This cookie dough filling is insane!!!!!  So.  Good.  It’s really thick, and a little hard to spoon into the holes, but it’s malleable like cookie dough, so I just used my fingers to roll it into balls.

frosting

I have never used condensed milk in frosting.  I like it!  It’s strong and pipeable.  It has a sweet texture to it, but it’s tricky cause it isn’t actually overly sweet.

full-halved

All of this works!  It’s not too rich or too sweet.  It is like eating a frosted chocolate chip cookie…which I’ve never considered doing before…but now I just might!
