My lovely hubs found a recipe on Facebook for Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Frosting (yes, frosting!) and was kind enough to request I make it. Never one to pass up a baking opportunity, especially one that involves chocolate chip cookie dough, I was more than happy to take the challenge.
My in-laws were coming to town (3 of them were coming ALL the way from Italy!!) so I decided to make a batch of chocolate cupcakes and top them with the cookie dough frosting! I was also happy to have people to give the baked goods to since our waistlines haven't been loving all the baking I've been doing for the blog this summer as much as our mouths have.
I changed up the original recipe a tiny bit and doubled the quantities because I always run short on frosting (I must be a heavy handed froster). I also slackassed and just used a box-cake for the cupcakes, but since the real focus was the frosting they didn't really matter much anyway!
1.) Put room temperature butter and cream cheese in a mixing bowl.
2.) Add sugar, flour, milk and vanilla and mix on medium speed for 2 minutes.
3.) Get your mini-chocolate chips ready, eat a few and enjoy.
4.) Add chocolate chips to the frosting and mix until well combined.
5.) The frosting will look just like chocolate chip cookie dough when it's the right consistency (you may need to add more milk and/or sugar until you get it to a consistency you are happy with).
6.) Frost cupcakes with a HEAPING amount of frosting and enjoy!
You guys, seriously, this frosting is AMAZEBALLS! It tastes just like cookie dough!
