Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcakes Recipes

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcakes? This seriously is real life. I am not kidding. These are not only ridiculously delicious, but they are generally easy to make! 

The other day, the kids and I decided we wanted to try something new. It was a boring day, the weather was crappy and we were craving something sweet. I mean, we usually always crave something sweet. We love baking together and we love to eat our baking together, even more. So we set off to the kitchen to create another fusion of yummy. We have created some interesting “mash ups” before, like Chocolate Chip Cookie Tarts filled with Fudge or Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecake Cookie cups and they turned out so well! So, we decided… let’s create another treat Monster…  A Franken-dessert if you will. YUM. 

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcakes

I love cookies and cupcakes and find it hard sometimes to choose between the two. Now I don’t have to and neither do you!  These darn Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcakes are the absolute best cupcakes I have ever had in my entire life. Maybe. I mean, they were so delicious I am lucky I can still walk… I am so full from stuffing my face.

These are mouthwatering and chocolatey! So delicious. Know what? The kids love them more than anything too! In fact, they keep asking to make some… almost every day. If you want something great to do over March Break then you should absolutely try making these with the kids.

These are harder to resist than they are to make, so you better be willing to pig out on some delicious cupcakes.

Cookies, cupcakes, icing. YES! Don’t forget to PIN this for later. You will want to make this all the time! Happy Baking!
