These cupcakes are a spin off of the popular cookies and cream cupcakes, which I am still having dreams about.

Dreams so vivid, that I can taste them in my sleep.

Or . . . maybe that is just the cookies I was eating in bed.

Kidding! (Sort of.)

These cupcakes are dreamy, too.

I used the good ole’ recipe for my vanilla bean cupcakes, and simply added some chocolate chips.

They came out super moist and tasty.

It’s like a cookie in cupcake form.

I would be lying if I said these stuck around for a few days. Heck, they barely stuck around for a few minutes! And this time, we didn’t share. We hoarded the cupcakes.

That ooey, gooey frosting down there? It tastes just like cookie dough. And you may as well just slather it on the cupcake, because there is no way the chocolate chunks are fitting through a pastry bag.

That’s fine by me. I’ll suck it up for the chocolate chunks.


Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

makes 12 cupcakes

1/2 cup butter

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 cup milk

1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350.

Cream butter, sugar, and eggs together until fluffy. Add vanilla.

Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Add half of the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. Add the milk. Once mixed, add remaining dry ingredients. Add chocolate chips and mix if you’d like them in smaller pieces.

Pour into cupcake tins and bake for 20-25 mins at 350. Let cool, then frost.


Cookie Dough Frosting

2 sticks butter, softened

1 1/2 – 2 lbs powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1-2 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk

1/2 cup chocolate chips

Mix butter and powdered sugar together, adding sugar gradually to the mix. Add vanilla. Mix in milk, adding more if needed. Continue to add milk and sugar until it reaches the desired consistency. Mix in chocolate chips.

I refuse to let Mr. How Sweet eat any cupcakes for fear of the frosting getting stuck in the moustache.

Yep, the ‘stache is still going strong. As this point, I am just thoroughly disgusted. He is already 10 years older than me, and now he looks 20 years older than me.

 If he is going to look that much older, he should at least pretend to be a sugar daddy and buy me some expensive shoes. Or a new car. And stuff for my friends. What do you want? I’ll start taking order now.
