These chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes combine the best of both worlds: chocolate cupcakes and chocolate chip cookie dough. The batter is made from a devil’s food cake mix with chocolate pudding and espresso granules added to give it a bit of a kick. A ball of pre-made chocolate chip cookie dough goes into the center of each before baking. After removing these goodies from the oven, top with a vanilla buttercream, then garnish with chocolate chips and whole, baked cookie! Yum.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie cupcakes seem a lot like oatmeal raisin cookie muffins, but the rich and hearty cookie like cupcake is tasty by whatever name you choose to call it. These sweet treats would be perfect for a quick on-the-go breakfast, as well as an after school snack. They could be frosted quite nicely with a cream cheese icing or buttercream, but they are quite tasty on their own as well.

Rich, dark and creamy are three great words to describe these Thin Mint cupcakes. Yes, you read that right: Thin Mint, like the Girl Scout Cookies. Made from cocoa powder, peppermint extract, ground Kopi Luwak coffee (or any dark roast), brewed coffee and a dash of Thin Mint crumbs, among other more traditional ingredients, the batter alone is hard to resist. Once they are topped with dark chocolate mint ganache and mint cream cheese frosting, they become completely irresistable.
Not an uncooked cookie dough lover? Think again! These cupcakes will definitely give you a run for more raw cookie cupcakes. These cupcakes are not that sweet so you it will be quite some time until you feel that sore on your throat – maybe after a dozen of these yummy cups? The frosting is definitely delicious, like soft cookies. Sweet cookies on a cup plus coffee or a cup of tea; sounds perfect!

What do a box of Oreo cookies, a packet of red velvet cake mix, a jar of marshmallow creme and a tub of cool whip have in common? Did you say Holiday Oreo Stuffed Cupcakes? If you did, you would be right. These tasty treats have an entire Oreo cupcake baked into each cupcake (the trick is to place them in the cupcake liners, then top them with red velvet cupcake dough.) After they have cooled, stuff the middles with a combination of the cool whip and marshmallow creme, then serve!

These lucious cupcakes, inspired by the Girl Scout Cookies of the same name, contain the three C’s: coconut, caramel and chocolate. The chocolate cupcake base contain unusual ingredients like sour cream and Dutch processed cocoa powder, alongside the standard flour, butter and sugar. Topped with a homemade salted buttercream frosting, sweetened toasted coconut (toasted in the oven, its simplicity is what makes this cupcake special) and a small drizzle of melted chocolate, these cupcakes are not to be forgotten!

These chocolate chip dough cupcakes are rich and moist; not to mention perfectly sweet. These cupcakes are also eggless and what’s used when of the cupcake batter is coconut milk. The richness of the batter complements the cookie dough. You don’t have to think about salmonella if you want to lick the leftover cookie dough. These cupcakes are decadent and one bite would ruin your diet but they are definitely worth it. One bite isn’t enough.

Nothing makes a chocolate lovers heart skip a beat quite like hearing the words, “brownie cupcakes with cookie dough frosting.” Yes, these tasty treats are made from a modified chocolate brownie batter and topped with a delicious (non-egg based, so they are safe to eat) cookie dough frosting festooned liberally with chocolate chips. You will be tempted to eat the frosting by itself, so be sure to double the recipe — just in case!

According to all of the fashion magazines, as well as the fashion designers themselves, mint and gold is the new black. Or new cupcake combo. Either way, these chocolate mint cupcakes topped with mint green frosting and tucked into gold cupcake wrappers are the height of both trendiness and deliciousness. The cupcake batter contains cocoa powder, chocolate chips and mint extract to give them a little twist, and the frosting has more mint extract – plus some green food coloring. Tasty and stylish, all at once!
