Cookie Dough
  1. 1/4 c. unsalted butter, softened
  2. 1/2 c. light brown sugar
  3. 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  4. 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  5. 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
  6. 2 tbsp. whole milk
  7. 1/3 c. mini chocolate chips
  1. 1 c. (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  2. 3 1/2 c. powdered sugar
  3. 3 tbsp. whole milk
  4. 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  5. 1 pinch kosher salt
  6. Mini chocolate chips, for garnish
  7. Mini chocolate chip cookies, for garnish
  1. Preheat oven to 350° and line 2 muffin tins with 20 cupcake liners.
  2. In a large bowl, prepare batter according to package directions. Pour batter into prepared liners and then bake until golden, about 20 minutes. Let cool completely, then scoop out the middle of each using a melon baller or teaspoon.
  3. Meanwhile, make cookie dough: In a large bowl using a hand mixer, beat together butter, brown sugar, vanilla, and salt until light and creamy. Add flour, beating on low until fully combined. Beat in milk and then fold in chocolate chips.
  4. Scoop a heaping teaspoon of cookie dough into each cupcake. Press to flatten the top.
  5. Make frosting: In a large bowl using a hand mixer, beat together butter and half of the powdered sugar until smooth. Beat in the milk, vanilla extract, salt, and the rest of the powdered sugar until light and fluffy. Transfer to a piping bag fitted with a large, round tip.
  6. Pipe stuffed cupcakes with vanilla frosting. Garnish each with more mini chocolate chips and a mini cookie.
