RIGHT.
Chocolate cupcakes with cookie dough centers. Amazing.

Hello beautiful.
The recipe is from Recipe Girl. Click on over and check it out.
My suggestions: Make the cookie dough (it’s egg-less, ps) the night before and freeze overnight. It eliminates one step the next night (and these are labor-intensive!) and ensures your cookie dough center will not bake and turn into a cookie center. Which isn’t necessarily bad, but I was going for a cookie dough feeling.
I think this idea would lend itself to several variations: Peanut butter cookie dough in the middle (which my friend Erin tried out), White cake with chocolate chip cookie dough centers, White cake with snickerdoodle centers, etc.
Happy baking!
