Cookie Dough Stuffed Dark Chocolate Cupcakes

This recipes is from Lindsay Landis's Cookie Dough Lover's Cookbook. It is a fair bit of work, but the cake is moist and delicious on it's own and putting the cookie dough inside is a real treat. I actually had extra cookie dough and I froze it in little balls to enjoy with ice cream.


  • Ready Time : 0 min




    For Cupcakes:

    • 1 cup all purpose flour
    • 1/3 cup dark or Dutch processed cocoa powder, sifted
    • 1/4 cup Granulated sugar
    • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
    • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 3/4 cup whole milk
    • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 2 eggs, lightly beaten

    For Cookie Dough:

    • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
    • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
    • 1/4 cup milk or cream
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 2/3 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips, divided

    For Buttercream:

    • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
    • 2 cups powdered sugar


    Preheat oven to 350F.  Line muffin tins with paper liners.

    In a large mixing bowl, whisk flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add milk, oil, vanilla, and eggs.  Stir until just combined, scraping bottom of bowl with a rubber spatula to incorporate all of the flour.

    Fill cupcake liners with 1/4 cup of the batter (no more than two thirds full).  Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Transfer to a cooling rack and cool completely.

    Prepare the cookie dough in a large mixing bowl.  Beat butter and sugars with mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy.  Beat in milk and vanilla.  Add flour and salt until all incorporated.  Set aside 1 cup of the dough for the frosting, stir in 1/3 cup of the chocolate chips.

    To prepare the buttercream, cream the butter until fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes.  Slowly add powdered sugar, 1/2 cup at a time, beat until smooth.  Add the reserved plain cookie dough and mix on medium high until light and fluffy about 2 to 3 minutes.

    Using a small knife, cut a cone shaped piece of cake from the top of each cupcake.  Pinch off the tips and discard or eat. Fill with the cookie dough and replace the tops. Spread or pipe on frosting, being sure to cover the seams.  Sprinkle with remaining 1/3 cup chocolate chips.

    Note: when I made these I only used half the frosting and it was plenty.

      Hi Tamar. Wondering if you could put frozen balls of the cookie dough in the cupcake batter before baking instead of after and avoid having to cut out the tops etc?

      • Good question libarab – I don’t know, I am not sure what would happen, not sure they would stay in the center and they would probably bake up a bit into a cookie so would lose some of their raw texture.

    2. I want these so badly

    3. Wow – these sound AMAZING!I omitted the chocolate chips and that seemed to work with taking some of he over richness out.
