{cookie dough cupcakes}


Isn't that the cutest cupcake you've ever seen!?
And they taste better than they look... not to toot my own horn or anything.

They are SUPER easy to make,
which might be a bad thing....
cause I'm pretty sure they're not healthy for you.

Here's how it's done:

1. Make a batch of cookies. 
I used the recipe on the back of the chocolate chip bag.
I recommend using mini chocolate chips.
Also, instead of using eggs, substitute 2 tablespoons of milk per egg - no risk of salmonella. :)



2. Roll the dough into balls about one inch wide. 
Place onto a cookie sheet narrow enough to fit into the freezer.
If they are too small they will cook inside of the cupcake, which is no bueno.



3. Keep rolling until you are out of dough.
Place cookie sheet into the freezer to freeze the dough for at least 2 hours.
DON'T skip this step!!

I made mine a couple of days before hand because I had some spare time.
If you'd like to do this, I recommend placing the dough balls into a ziploc bag after about two hours in the freezer.



4. When you are ready to make the cupcakes, pull out your favorite box of cake mix.
Follow instructions on the box for making batter.


5. Fill liners about 2/3 full of batter.


6. Place frozen cookie dough on top of the batter.
There is no need to press down, it'll work it's magic all on it's own.


7. Bake at 350 degrees for 16 minutes. If you bake them for too long, the cookie will start to bake. 
They are much better doughy, like so: 


YUM! 

I didn't get a picture of the cupcake cut with the frosting on it, but you get the idea.


Frosting:
- one package instant pudding mix {vanilla or chocolate}
- half of the amount of milk pudding box calls for {was one cup on package I used}
- one regular size container of cool whip

Mix pudding and half of the milk the box calls for together in the kitchen aid.
Add in cool whip.
Whip together for a couple of minutes until desired consistency.
Bam.
Done. 
Delish.

Plop on top of cupcakes, add some mini choco chips and a cute little cookie.
A cupcake topper doesn't hurt either :)


I made these for some friends bebe shower/housewarming/30th b-day party.

The party was a hit. 
I mean, we made mason jar veggie cups for goodness sakes!


Here are a few other snippets of fabulousness that took place:
