Decadent dessert at its finest!
  • CUPCAKES: (makes 24 cupcakes…can easily be halved)
  • 1 ½ cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 ½ cups light brown sugar, packed
  • 4 eggs
  • 2⅔ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 6 tbsp packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup plus 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 7 oz sweetened condensed milk (approx 12 tbsp)
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 ½ cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ¾ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3 ½ cups icing sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 2 ½ tsp vanilla extract
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line 2 cupcake pans with paper liners. Beat butter and brown sugar on medium until light and fluffy, about 3 min. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add to wet ingredients alternately with milk, beginning and ending with dry ingredients, mixing each addition until just incorporated. Blend in the vanilla and fold in the chocolate chips with a spatula.
  3. Divide batter evenly between cupcakes and bake for 18-20 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool in pan for 5 minutes before removing to rack to cool completely.
  4. FILLING: Combine butter and sugar; cream on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the flour, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about an hour to let it firm up a bit.
  5. To fill the cooled cupcakes, cut a cone-shaped portion out of the center of each cupcake and eat the resulting crumbs :). Fill each hole with a chunk of the cookie dough filling mixture.
  6. FROSTING: (If you just want a thin layer of icing, half the recipe). Beat together butter and brown sugar until creamy. Mix in icing sugar until smooth. Beat in flour and salt, then add milk and vanilla and beat until very smooth. Frost and decorate as desired.
