I decided to do some more experimenting with cupcakes last weekend (yes, I’m behind on the food posting!) The chocolate cupcake was basic, but the star of this show was the cookie dough frosting! I found this on Pinterest and had to try it out – success! It is definitely not your typical frosting – it is exactly like chocolate chip cookie dough without the eggs.
I modified the recipe slightly – I opted for a little less flour. Next time I make it, I will add a little white sugar too to sweeten it up a little more. These were a great variation from your standard cupcake icing, especially if you are a cookie dough lover!
Cookie Dough Frosting
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened to room temp
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
6 to 8 tbsp milk
2 cups mini chocolate chips
1.) Cream butter and sugar together in a stand mixer. Add vanilla.
2.) In small batches, add flour and salt and mix until combined.
3.) Add milk until desired consistency is achieved.
4.) Ice cooled cupcakes.
