Cookie Dough Frosted Brownie Cupcakes


The second dessert for the triple birthday was also from Sally’s Baking Addiction. I saw the recipe for these fudge brownie cupcakes with cookie dough frosting and my friend Gillian almost lost her mind with excitement. I figured I had to make them or she would never stop harassing me about them. They are definitely a very solid pairing. The cupcake part is quite accurately a rich brownie in cupcake form. The icing is just the right amount of sweet, and like a fluffy cookie dough. 




  • 240 g bittersweet chocolate
  • 1 cup (225 g) butter, unsalted
  • 2.5 cups (500 g) granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 6 eggs
  • 1.5 cups (190 g) cake flour
  • ½ tsp. salt


  1. Preheat oven to 325F, and line 2 cupcake trays.
  2. Melt together the chocolate and butter (I used a microwave). 
  3. Mix the sugar and vanilla in with the chocolate. 
  4. Add the eggs in one at a time. 
  5. Add in the salt and cake flour, and mix thoroughly. Don’t over mix. 
  6. Fill liners 2/3 high, and bake for 25 – 30 minutes. A toothpick should come out slightly crumbly or clean when they are done. 



  • 1 cup (225 g) butter, unsalted
  • 1.5 cups (300 g) brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 280 g cake flour*
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ½ cup (120 mL) milk
  • 1 package (300 g) mini chocolate chips


  1. In a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugar. 
  2. Add in the vanilla extract, flour, and salt, and mix until just combined. 
  3. Add in the milk and beat until fluffy. Fold in chocolate chips. 
  4. When cupcakes have cooled, frost with offset spatula. 

*I used toasted flour since the cookie dough isn’t being baked
