Chocolate Cookie Dough Cupcakes


Yield: 24 Cupcakes


Chocolate Cake:
1 box Devil’s Food Cake Mix
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup oil
3 eggs
3/4 cup buttermilk
3/4 cup sour cream
3 teaspoons vanilla extract

Cookie Dough Frosting:
3/4 cup butter, softened
4 oz cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2-3 cups powdered sugar
milk, if needed


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line pans with cupcake liners or use white souffle cups like I did.

2. Sift cake mix, cocoa powder, cinnamon and baking powder into a bowl. Stir and set aside.

3. In a large bowl, gently whisk oil, eggs, buttermilk, sour cream and vanilla extract together.

4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir until smooth.

5. Fill cupcake liners 3/4 full and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until and inserted knife comes out clean.

6. Cookie Dough Frosting: Beat butter, cream cheese and brown sugar for 2 minutes. In a separate bowl, combine flour and salt. Add flour/salt mixture to butter mixture and beat. Add vanilla extract and slowly add powdered sugar until you reach your desired consistency. Add 1 tablespoon of milk if your cookie dough mixture is too thick. Continue to add more if needed.

7. Pipe frosting onto cooled cupcakes and top with chocolate curls. (I use a bar of chocolate and a cheese grater to make my curls :) )
