Recipe Roundup: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

This past weekend was my sister's bachlorette party. For the party I decided that we she should make cupcakes, because she's an awesome baker. 

I did act as baking assistant though. I definitely handed her ingredients, taste tested, put the icing in the bag and frosted them. But the ingredients/mixing was all her. Because I tend to not measure things properly. And it all turns bad. 

This recipe is long and a little complicated. Not for the novice baker. But they are deeee-licious and totally worth the time. 

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

3 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar, packed
4 large eggs
2 2/3 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate mini chocolate chips (semisweet)

Preheat oven to 350. Cream butter and sugar and add eggs one at a time, beating well after each is added. Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together. Add to butter and sugar, mixing well and adding milk at the same time. Add vanilla, fold in chocolate chips. Divide into 24 cupcake liners and bake at 18-20 minutes. 

 Mmm, cupcake batter.

For the filling:
4 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature
6 tbsp light brown sugar, packed
1 cup, plus 2 tbsp flour
7 oz sweetened condensed milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugar. Add flour, milk, vanilla and beat until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about an hour. After cupcakes have cooled, fill cupcakes by cutting a cone-shaped hole out of the center and fill the hole with cookie dough mixture.

For the frosting:
3 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
3 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 cup flour
3/4 tsp salt
3 tbsp milk
2 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Cream butter and sugar. Mix in confectioners' sugar until smooth. Beat in flour and salt. Mix in milk and vanilla extract until smooth. Frost with a pastry bag and top with mini chocolate chips. And you'll get these:
