Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

Who doesn’t love cookie dough, right? It’s just so hard not to go crazy munching on it. Sometimes I wonder how much I actually eat before it gets baked and, even justify by telling myself its a superfood….. Well, maybe that is going too far…..

These cupcakes are loaded with a cookie dough center and are the perfect outlet for that ooey gooey craving.

When I started my home baking business, I was working on my cupcake menu and trying different flavor combinations and textures. This is where I discovered this cupcake.

I tried different versions to see what worked the best. Finally, deciding that putting a hunk of raw dough right in the center of the cupcake before baking was the way to go!

Before long, it was a top seller, especially at arts and craft fairs. This cupcake was one the first flavors to always sell out.

Super popular with the young crowd.

For this recipe, I take my favorite vanilla cupcake, along with my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. I’m sure you have a favorite as well. Put them together to for the best cookie and cake duo.

Also, you could even use the store bought version cookie dough. Works equally as well and will save you some time for a quick short cut.
