Recipe: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

Today is my sister-in-law Maggie’s Sweet Sixteenth Birthday!!!  For her birthday, I wanted to make an extra special dessert for her!  So I reached out to my friend Allison, who is like the QUEEN of unique cupcakes.   She had made this recipe once in the past and it was delicious, so she shared her source of where she initially found the recipe.  I adapted it just a bit and it came out fantastic!!

These cupcakes consist of a chocolate chip cupcake, stuffed with a ball of egg-free cookie dough in the middle, and then topped with cookie flavored icing and sprinkled with mini chocolate chips!  The recipe comes in three different parts, for the cupcake, filling, and icing.  Enjoy!!
