Well, this was the perfect blend of two classic desserts: a chocolate chip cookie and a vanilla cupcake. I was pressed for time, so I took a shortcut with the vanilla cupcake and the cookie decoration, but feel free to use your own cupcake & chocolate chip recipe.
1 box super moist yellow cake mix + all the ingredients needed to make it
1 stick unsalted butter, room temp
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
3 tblsp. milk
1 cup mini chocolate chips
1 pint heavy whipping cream
1 box instant chocolate pudding mix
Optional: mini chocolate chips & mini chocolate chip cookie dough squares
Bake mini chocolate chip cookies according to directions on package and let cool.
Bake cupcakes according to package directions and let cool.
Once cool, cut out the middle of each cupcake.
In a medium bowl beat butter and sugar.
Add vanilla and combine.
Add the flour and salt until incorporated.
Add the milk to get the cookie dough texture.
Fold in chocolate chips.
Spoon cookie dough into holes of the cupcakes.
In a large bowl, beat heavy cream and dry pudding mix until fluffy.
Pipe whipped topping on top of cookie dough filled cupcakes.
Top with mini chocolate chips and a mini cookie!
