Chip Lover's Cupcake Recipe

Chip Lover's Cupcakes RecipeMy mom recently came up to Nashville to spend the day with me. After a fun day of antique shopping, we came home to bake some cupcakes for Alyssa's birthday. The cupcakes turned out great so I thought I would share the recipe with you. And get this- they have COOKIE DOUGH in the center! The recipe comes from Taste of Home. (Just remember the recipe makes 18 cupcakes :)

30 2
  • 1 package (18-1/4 ounces) white cake mix
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 4-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 4 tablespoons 2% milk, divided
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 18 miniature chocolate chip cookies


  • Prepare cake batter according to package directions; set aside. For filling, in a small bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in flour and confectioners' sugar until blended. Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Fill paper-lined muffin cups half full with cake batter. Drop filling by tablespoonfuls into the center of each; cover with remaining batter.
  • Bake at 350° for 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in cake comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  • For frosting, in a large bowl, cream the butter, shortening and confectioners' sugar until smooth. Beat in 3 tablespoons milk and vanilla until creamy. Set aside 1 cup frosting; frost cupcakes with remaining frosting.
  • Stir baking cocoa and remaining milk into reserved frosting. Cut a small hole in a corner of a pastry or plastic bag; insert star tip. Fill bag with chocolate frosting. Pipe a rosette on top of each cupcake; garnish with a cookie. Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.
    Mom and I changed up the recipe a little and made all the icing chocolate instead of part chocolate and part vanilla. I bought a bag of Chips Ahoy Minis to garnish the tops. I think they were a hit! Hope you enjoy them as much as we did :)
