Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes are a cookie dough lovers dream!

I don’t know how long it’s been since I’ve actually baked a cupcake.  Weeks… probably more like months.  I’ve baked cookies, scones and crescent rolls, but no cupcakes!  Crazy, huh?  Cause this is supposed to be a cupcake blog, right?

Hmmm… So yeah.  I made cupcakes today.  And, I didn’t start back into baking cupcakes slowly.  No, I didn’t ease into things.  I went BIG!

Chocolate cupcake + Cookie Dough = HOLY GOODNESS!!!

Baked inside this cupcake is a chocolate chip cookie dough ball.  Yah, you read me right.  Cookie Dough.  The best thing that God ever created inside this cupcake.Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes | The JavaCupcake Blog https://javacupcake.com

And to make things even better…. the frosting.  Cookie Dough.   Both my hubby and my neighbor told me I needed to just make this frosting.  A big giant bowl of it so they could take a spoon and scoop it out and shove it in their mouth.  It’s that good.

Personally, I found the bottom of the cupcake to be the best.   But hey, everyone has their preferences.

Cookies ‘n Creme Brownies

I had a potluck 2 weeks ago.  It’s theme is International Food.  So yeah.  I’m in Germany… which means technically American cuisine would be considered “international”, right?  HAHA

So brownies it is.  BUT!  Not your traditional brownie… it’s a cookies n’ creme brownie!  This delicious thing has oreos baked inside of the brownie as well as a creamy oreo buttercream slathered on top.

NOM!

It’s a pretty easy recipe too, only took me about 10 minutes to whip up and get in oven… then another few minutes to beat up the frosting, spread and cut!

If the soldiers at work don’t love these at the potluck… well shoot.  hahaha!

Cookies ‘n Creme Brownies
Makes 16 brownies (depending on how you cut it)

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
3 oz (3 squares) unsweetened bakers chocolate, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 tsp salt

8 Oreo cookies, chopped

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.  Great 9×15 in dark pan with shortening or butter.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the butter, sugar and eggs.
  3. While that is creaming, melt the chocolate and set aside to cool for 2 minutes.
  4. Add the slightly cooled chocolate to the butter mixture, scrape the sides of the bowl and mix until combined.
  5. Mix in the vanilla.
  6. In a medium bowl, whisk together the cocoa powder, flour and salt.
  7. Add the flour to the butter mixture and mix only until just combined.
  8. Remove bowl from mixer, scrape off paddle attachment and sides of the bowl.  Fold in the Oreo cookies and make sure the batter is smooth and combined.  This should take about 7-8 strokes.
  9. Spread batter evenly into the pan using an offset spatula.
  10. Bake for 25-35 minutes or just until barely done.  Do not over bake!
  11. Cool completely on a wire rack.  (If you’re in a hurry like I was, allow brownies to cool for 10 minutes in front of an open window, then remove them from the pan to cool more on the wire rack by the window!)
  12. Frost with Oreo buttercream then cut into squares!
  13. Eat…. nom nom nom!  Enjoy!!!

Recipe adapted from: How Sweet It Is

Oreo Buttercream

1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 lb powdered sugar
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 tsp salt
8-10 Oreo cookies, in chunky pieces

  1. Cream together the butter, sugar and salt – about 3-4 minutes.
  2. Add half the cream and beat until smooth.
  3. Mix in the Oreos and beat until they are broken up.  You want a few chunks in the frosting, so don’t mix too long.
  4. Beat in the the remaining cream until you get your desired consistency.
  5. NOTE:  This frosting is VERY SWEET.  You can cut back on the sugar, oreos or add a pinch more salt to change the flavor.  Play around with it until you get it the right sweetness.

Graveyard Cupcakes

Oreo Cupcakes dressed up for Halloween with cookie crumble dirt and Milano cookie headstones… these Graveyard Cupcakes are perfect for your next Halloween party!

Graveyard Cupcakes | JavaCupcake.com

Today is the Fall Festival for my husband’s Battalion here in Germany.  I am also an FRG Leader for one of the companies in the BN so I had a huge part in planning the festivities for today!  One of the events is a Bake Off (my idea, of course!  hehe)!  I wanted to make something that was not only delicious, but spooky and on theme for Halloween!

I decided to make an Oreo cupcake and decorate it like a graveyard as well as an orange flavored candy corn cupcake! I know that candy corn typically isn’t orange in flavor, but my friend Sarah sent me a package of blood orange candy corns… so this works out perfectly!

Graveyard Cupcakes | JavaCupcake.com

For the Graveyard cupcakes I made this oreo cupcake… it’s a favorite recipe of mine that works out perfectly every time I make it!   Instead of a cream cheese frosting like the recipe calls for… I used a standard buttercream and added oreos.  I made 1.5x the amount I’d normally make for a dozen cupcakes, just to make sure I had enough frosting.

Enjoy!

Graveyard Cupcakes

Yield: 1 dozen cupcakes
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 18 minutes
Total Time: 48 minutes

Ingredients

Oreo Cupcakes

  • Get the RECIPE HERE

Oreo Buttercream

  • 12 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 lb powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 10 Oreos, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Assembly

  • 6 Milano chocolate cookies, halved
  • Wilton Foodwriters pen
  • 10 Crushed Oreo cookies (just the cookie, not the cream)

Instructions

Oreo Cupcakes

  1. Make the cupcakes according to the directions in the link above.

Oreo Buttercream

  1. Beat the butter until smooth.
  2. Slowly add the powdered sugar, alternating with a small amount of cream at a time, and beat until smooth and creamy.
  3. Mix in the vanilla.
  4. Add the chopped Oreos and mix on high for 2 minutes or until all the big chunks of Oreo are gone.
  5. Add more cream until you get your desired consistency. You may not need all the cream.
  6. Mix in the salt until well combined.

Assembly

  1. Top the cupcakes with a generous mound of frosting.
  2. In a medium bowl, dump the cookie crumbs. Turn your frosted cupcake upside down and dip it into the cookie crumbs. You'll want to put some pressure into the crumbs so that the cookies coat the entire top of the cupcake and frosting. Roll the sides too if needed.
  3. Using the palm of your hand, pat the cookie crumbs until they form a nice round mound, like a grave.
  4. Using the food pen, write any spooky phrase you want on the cookie halves. I wrote RIP. Place each cookie into the frosting.
  5. You could also put hands or bones, maybe gummy worms or other spooky creatures in your grave... really, the possibilities are endless!
