Day 346 – Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

12 Jul

Today is another birthday in my world!  This adorable little girl:

Happy Birthday, Ainsley!!  I hope you enjoy these Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes (recipe below from Shugary Sweets).  I know I would enjoy them on my birthday!!

The cupcakes are dense and chewy, but not dry at all. They have a sweet vanilla flavor. Very similar to the flavor of the broken up cookie pieces on the inside.


The frosting is thick, but not too thick to pipe. Just make sure you use a big enough piping tip to fit the mini chocolate chips through without an explosion. The frosting is sweet with that sugary texture of cookie dough. I could personally use more brown or white granulated sugar, cause it’s missing a little of that sugary flavor and texture. The powdered sugar just makes it too smooth for cookie dough. It is very sweet though, just like cookie dough should be.

This doesn’t taste as much like a cookie dough cupcake to me. It tastes like a thick, chewy chocolate chip cookie topped with cookie dough. (I didn’t say it was a bad thing…) The cookie flavor is definitely coming across loud and clear. Sweet, chocolate and vanilla are the main themes. It’s just not as smooth overall as I expect a “cookie dough” cupcake to be.

    This sounds wonderful! I think I’ll try these, and add a little more brown sugar to the frosting like you suggested. Was the chewy a GOOD thing, or should I make a modification to THAT too? P.s. You’re almost done your year!!! So exciting!!!
