Ingredients

  • FOR THE CUPCAKES:
  • 1 cup Butter, Softened
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 4 whole Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 2-½ cups Flour, Sifted
  • 1-½ teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 1 cup Evaporated Milk
  • 15 whole Crunchy Chocolate Chip Cookies, Chopped (I Used Chips Ahoy)
  • FOR THE FROSTING:
  • 1 cup Butter, Softened
  • ¾ cups Brown Sugar
  • ¼ teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 4 cups Powdered Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Tablespoons Evaporated Milk
  • 1 cup Mini Chocolate Chips
  • 15 whole Mini Chips Ahoy Cookies, Cut In Half

Preparation

For the cupcakes, preheat oven to 350ºF.

Beat butter with sugar until smooth and fluffy (about 3 minutes). Add in eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition until fully combined. Beat in vanilla extract.

In a small bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda together (very important). Add flour mixture to butter mixture, alternating with evaporated milk, in about 3 additions. Do not overbeat. Fold in chopped cookies. Fill cupcake liners about 3/4 full and bake 20-25 minutes. Allow to cool 15 minutes in pan, remove and cool completely on wire rack.

For the frosting, beat butter, brown sugar and salt for about 3 minutes until fully combined. Beat in powdered sugar, vanilla and milk. Continue to beat for about 3-5 minutes until fluffy. Add chocolate chips. Pipe onto cooled cupcakes and garnish with half of a mini chips ahoy cookie. Enjoy!

Cupcake recipe adapted from Magnolia’s vanilla cupcake.

Margaret, I used a big tip (1A) and it all went through smoothly. If you don’t have that tip, you could use a big star tip, or as a last ditch resort to chopping up the chocolate chips (or use minis). Hope this helps!!

I love the cupcakes but I ran into a problem with my piping bag. It was stuck on the chocolate chips and i could not pipe. Any tips on how to avoid this problem?
