Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

The next cupcake recipe was one that I figured my husband, who’s a big fan of cookie dough ice cream, would enjoy.  The blog Annie’s Eats had posted a recipe for chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes that food bloggers everywhere were clamoring to try. Who can blame them?  Cookie dough plus cupcakes is a hard combo to beat. 

What intrigued me most about the cupcakes was the cookie dough flavored icing.  A cup of flour in frosting seemed a little odd.  My fears went away the minute I tasted it.  This frosting totally makes the cupcakes.  It really does taste like cookie dough. 

As for the center of the cupcakes, a portion is hollowed out to allow a ball of cookie dough to be placed inside.  This eggless cookie dough is made with sweetened condensed milk. 
The only portion of the cupcakes I wasn’t crazy about was the cake itself.  A brown sugar cake recipe is used to pull all the cookie flavors together.  The cake wasn’t bad, but it didn’t add a lot of flavor either. It was a little crumbly instead of fluffy.  I think a good white or butter cake recipe would be just as good, if not better.   To save some steps, a box cake mix could even be used, especially since it acts as a base to showcase the frosting and stuffing.
