Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

What could possibly be better than a homemade chocolate chip cookie?

Oh yea.  That just happened. 

I had been avoiding these cupcakes for a couple of reasons.  The first is obvious - they are amazing and I would eat them ALL.  Secondly, most of the recipes that I've seen stuff these decadent cupcakes with raw cookie dough.  I just didn't feel comfortable eating (or serving) anything with raw eggs.  (I have way too much knowledge about food borne illnesses.) 

Annie' has come to my rescue.  She came up with a super yummy version of a chocolate chip cookie dough cupcake with a cookie dough center that doesn't contain raw eggs.  And it's amazing.

That solves that problem, but now I have to figure out how to stop myself from eating the entire batch.  

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes
3 sticks butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
4 eggs
2 2/3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup mini chocolate chips

4 Tablespoons butter
6 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 cup + 2 Tablespoons flour
7 ounces sweetened condensed milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Vanilla Buttercream Frosting
Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies 
Mini Chocolate Chips for decoration

Prepare a batch of your favorite chocolate chip cookie dough.  Divide each regular size cookie portion into quarters and bake for a shorter time. 

For filling
Combine butter and brown sugar in mixing bowl until smooth and creamy. 

Add flour, vanilla and condensed milk.

Fold in chocolate chips.

Refrigerate filling to desired firmness.

For cupcakes, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Beat in eggs and vanilla.

Add dry ingredients alternating with milk.

Fold in chocolate chips.

Scoop batter into paper lined muffin tins.

Bake 20 minutes at 350.

Once cool, cut a hole in the center of each cupcake.

Want to know the best part about making filled cupcakes?  Eating the holes!!!

Roll small portions of the filling into a little cylinders and fill each hole with cookie dough filling.

Frost with buttercream.  Decorate with a mini chocolate chip cookie and a sprinkling of mini chocolate chips.

Brace yourself because I went a little nuts with the pictures.

So you get the idea.  These cupcakes are amazing.  Bake with caution though - you will not be able to stop yourself from eating them.
