Cookie Dough Frosted Cupcakes!

I could always eat cookie dough by the spoonful, but yes yes, it’s unhealthy and could be dangerous because of the raw egg. But I found a solution! Cookie Dough Frosting!!!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Frosting

  • 2/3 cups salted butter (at room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar (packed)
  • 1/2 cup ultragrain flour
  • 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon molasses
  • 2 tablespoons half and half
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips

Cupcake Ingredients:

  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a muffin pan with paper or foil liners. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the vanilla. Add the flour mixture alternately with the milk; beat well.
  3. Fill the muffin cups 3/4 full.
  4. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.
  5. Frost Cupcakes, but don’t try to pipe it on. It’s WAY too thick for that, had to use a frosting knife for this one

Frosting Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, whip together butter and brown sugar until fluffy.
  2. Mix in flour and salt, then add powdered sugar, vanilla, molasses and half and half.
  3. Fold in 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips for a spreadable frosting and use the rest as a garnish.

I ate spoonfuls of the frosting! Enjoy!
