Dessert Manchild Approved Semi-Homemade

Cookie Dough Stuffed Cupcakes

Cookie Dough Stuffed Cupcakes

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes are something I first made more than two years ago, and since then I have made again and again. This is definitely a WOW dessert . When you tell someone they are about to eat a cookie dough stuffed cupcake, the look of joy/excitement/incredulity in their eyes is indescribable… MIND ‘SPLOSION!

You can take the semi-homemade route like myself and use cake mix (heck yes). You could also use premade frosting, but I just don’t really like store bought frosting, so I always make my own Buttercream Frosting. It’s not too hard, I promise! But really, you could do this with any cake mix flavor or any recipe that makes 2 dozen cupcakes. And who says it needs to be chocolate chip cookie dough? I would bet strawberry cupcakes with a sugar cookie dough center would be incredible.

This time when I made them the cookie dough sunk in a bit, soufflé style, but as you can see the last time I posted these cookie dough cupcakes, that doesn’t always happen. Either way, tastes the same! This is a phenomenon I will attribute to high altitude.

Cookie Dough Stuffed Cupcakes
Serves: 24
  • 1 box cake mix (plus the oil and eggs per the box's instructions)
  • 24 cupcake baking cups
  • 1 24-count pack of break-and-bake style cookie dough
  • 1 frosting recipe or premade frosting
  1. Prepare cake mix according to box directions and preheat oven to specified temperature.
  2. Line cupcake tin with baking cups. Divide batter among the 24 cupcakes - each tin should be about halfway full.
  3. Lightly press the cookie dough squares into the batter (not quite to the bottom).
  4. Bake according to the cake mix instructions, or until the cookie dough is gold on top and the cupcake is cooked through.
  5. When done, remove from oven and let cool before frosting.
