Cookie Dough Monster Cupcakes

Pin It


I don't know about you, but chocolate chip cookie dough is one of my most favorite things ever. It never gets old. I make chocolate chip cookies all the time and always eat my fair share of dough. I just can't help myself! 
So when I wanted to make a batch of cupcakes, this was a no brainer. I made them blue as a nod to Cookie Monster, but that's totally optional. Fluffy and moist vanilla cupcakes stuffed with cookie dough, topped with vanilla cream cheese or fudge frosting, and to top it all of a mini chocolate chip cookie. 
They are over the top delicious. 






Cookie Dough Monster Cupcakes
by: Back For Seconds


First mix up a batch of your favorite cookie dough (or use store bought) roll into 24 1" balls and freeze for at least 1 hour before using. The cookie dough will not have enough time to bake if they are frozen all the way through - thats what you want! Use the remaining cookie dough to make mini cookies to use as toppers to the cupcakes.

Vanilla Cake
by:Back For Seconds

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 Tbs baking powder
In large bowl beat together sugar, butter, and oil until very light and fluffy. Add in vanilla and eggs one at a time. With mixer on low slowly add in flour, milk and baking powder, then turn to high and mix for 2 minutes. Pour evenly into 24 cupcake liners and drop a ball of cookie dough in the center of each one - do NOT press down. Bake at 350* for about 15-18 minutes or until done. Cool on wire rack and frost. Store in the refrigerator. Let cupcakes come to room temp before serving. 



Fudge Frosting
By: Back For Seconds

  • 5 squares bakers chocolate (unsweetened)
  • 2 Tbs buttter
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 - 1/2 cup milk
