Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Recipe

For Kayla's Birthday Party she wanted cupcakes so I searched the internet to find something that sounded tasty and was different than the everyday flavors like chocolate or vanilla.
When I came across Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes I was sold.
First off who doesn't like cookie dough??? and this was definitely something different.

It does take a little more time in the kitchen to make since you have to make the cookie dough filling but trust me it is worth it because they were delicious.

    Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes 
  • 3 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1½ cups light brown sugar, packed
  • 4 large eggs

  • ¼ tsp. salt

    Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes
  1. preheat the oven to 350° F.
  2. Using the paddle attachment on your mixer, combine the butter and brown sugar. Cream together on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, approx 3 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition and scraping down the sides of the bowl .
  3. Whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a medium bowl.
  4. Alternating add the dry ingredients to the mixer bowl with the milk on low speed, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients, mixing each addition just until incorporated.
  5. Blend in the vanilla.
  6. Fold in the chocolate chips with a spatula.
  7. Divide the batter evenly between 24 cupcake liners. Bake for 18-20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

  9. Cream butter and sugar in a mixing bowl on medium-high speed until light and fluffy(approx2 minutes).
