This creative recipe couldn't be easier — or more impressive! Made from a standard box mix, simply fold in cookie dough and then decorate with the unbeatable ganache frosting. What's not to love!? —Morgan Phillips, Charlottesville, Virginia

Ingredients

  • 1 package yellow cake mix (regular size)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tube (16-1/2 ounces) refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough
  • FROSTING:
  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, milk, eggs, butter and vanilla; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes.
  2. Fill paper-lined muffin cups one-third full. Roll tablespoonfuls of cookie dough into balls. Drop into center of each cupcake. Top with remaining batter.
  3. Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  4. For frosting, in a small saucepan, melt chocolate chips with cream over low heat; stir until blended. Remove from the heat. Transfer to a small bowl; cover and refrigerate for 45-60 minutes or until mixture reaches spreading consistency, stirring every 15 minutes.
  5. Cut a small hole in the corner of pastry or plastic bag; insert #20 star pastry tip. Fill bag with chocolate mixture; pipe cupcakes. Sprinkle with miniature chocolate chips. Yield: 2 dozen.

Very good & easy too! Made them for my nieces birthday, and was running late so I couldn't wait for the frosting to cool so I just dipped the tops of the cupcakes in the frosting while it was warm. They turned out prefect!

The cookie dough just sunk to the bottom of the cupcake but everyone raved about how good they were! Instead of the ganache, I used almond flavored buttercream icing, both chocolate and regular (and sprinkles, of course!)

The cream is used when you melt the chips down for the icing.

What about the heavy whipping cream, I didn't see in the recipe what to do with it?

Thanks,
