Brownie cupcakes w cookie dough frosting

DOUBLE CUPCAKE POST on its way. It was a really great (gloomy) day to stay in & bake & frost.

This recipe only uses one bowl for the brownies & one for the frosting so it’s very simple.


  • 4 ounces 60% Ghiradelli chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 & 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • frosting
    • 1/2 cup unsalted butter,
    • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • 1 cup + 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 cup whole milk
    • 1 cup mini chocolate chips

Melt chocolate and sliced butter in a bowl, stirring well. Allow cool for a few minutes and then stir in sugar and vanilla. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well. Mix in flour & salt. Pour batter into muffin tins and bake for about 22 minutes at 325*F.

For the frosting, cream the sugar and butter with an electric mixer. Add the vanilla. Stir in flour & salt. Stir in milk & beat until fluffy. Fold in the chocolate chips. Frost the cooled cupcakes generously.


This would be great for brownie/cookie dough lovers! Personally, I prefer my cookies baked…
