Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

Makes 24 cupcakes



For the Cupcakes:

  • I box yellow cake mix
  • 1-1/4 cups water
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 3 eggs (or egg 3/4 cup egg substitute)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

For the Cookie Dough Filling:

(original recipe for filling can be found here)

  • 4 tbsp. butter, softened
  • 6 tbsp. packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup + 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 7 oz. fat-free sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

For the Frosting:

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3 cups confectioners sugar
  • 1-1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1-3 tbsp milk


To make the cupcakes, prepare as directed on the cake mix box. Stir in chocolate chips. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 18-22 minutes (or whatever the box mix tells you) until lightly golden. Allow to cool completely.

To make the cookie dough filling, combine the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl and cream together until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the flour, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla until combined and smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips. Cover and refrigerate until the mixture is firm, about an hour.

To fill the cupcakes, cut a cone-shaped portion out of the center of each cupcake. Fill each hole with a chunk of the chilled cookie dough mixture.

To make the frosting, cream together butter and sugar.  Add vanilla and 1 tbsp. milk.  Continue to add milk until your desired consistency is achieved. (I ended up using almost 3 tbsp).

Frost the filled cupcakes, and decorate with mini chocolate chips and mini cookie dough balls (I used whatever was left over and I still had a lot left) for decoration. ENJOY! 😛

    Wow! These look amazingly delicious and like something I should definitely NOT make cuz I’d be eating an entire kitchen full! LOL

    I suppose I’ll have to keep your blog readily available though for those “special” times when I allow myself to misbehave a bit and enjoy a splurge…. AND have some place to take the rest so I’m not tempted!

    Found you from your CnC guest blog post & glad I did!
