Chocolate Chocolate Cookie Dough Filled Cupcakes

These are chocolate cupcakes, with chocolate chocolate chip cookie dough filling, frosted with brown sugar chocolate chip cookie frosting! OMG! So good, I die.

Chocolate chip cookie dough filled chocolate cupcake

The chocolate cake recipe I used is THE BEST I have ever tried. I had intended to put mini chips in the batter, but it is a very thin batter, so the chips would likely sink to the bottom. If you have a chocolate cake recipe you love that would support the chips, go ahead and throw then in!

Note that I adapted the recipes by doubling the cupcake recipe and halving the cookie dough filling and frosting recipes.

When cupcakes have completely cooled, cut out a "cone" from the center of the cupcake. Cut of the bottom of the "cone" and keep the "hat." Spoon a bit of the cookie dough filling into the cupcake and replace the hat. Some nice photos of this method can be found in this post for boston cream cupcakes.
