Most people in my life know that I have a huge love for baking. Cupcakes, cake, cookies, I love it all. This week I wanted to whip up a special treat because I’ve been swamped with exams, but the worst part is, when I have a few days off from exams I’m studying for boards. So there really isn’t any time off right now which its hard and exhausting. So to counteract the bad vibes that UWorld and Pathoma are giving me (those are my board study resources, for those of you not in medical school… haha) I decided to bake!
These cupcakes were so good, I had to give them away to anyone and everyone to keep me from eating them ALL. I’m actually not even a huge chocolate fan, but these were good.
This is the recipe for the frosting, I just used a vanilla cupcake recipe for the actual cupcakes.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes
- 2 sticks of butter
- 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
- 3 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tsp salt
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 1 cup whole milk (or almond)
- 1 cup mini chocolate chips (OR MORE! if you’d like)
With an electric mixer, cream together the butter and the brown sugar. Add salt and vanilla. Mix. Add flour slowly. Mix. Add milk, a little splash at time. This way your frosting will stay fluffy. Finally, manual stir in the chocolate chips. ENJOY!
