My two favourite things. Brownies & cookie dough, brought together... In a cupcake. OMFG get in my face now!

These are crazy easy to make in just one evening with all the ingredients in your cupboards, and taste ridiculous. There's a heft to them, they're like a mini meal! Not for the faint hearted...

Don't eat all the cookie dough now!

  • 150g milk chocolate chips

Method:

  • Melt the dark choc and butter in bain marie, set aside to cool.
  • When choc mixture has cooled, mix in sugar and vanilla.
  • Mix in eggs one at a time, until well incorporated
  • Sift in flour and salt and mix together until you have a thick, glossy batter.
  • Spoon into cupcake cases and bake on 180oC for 20-25 mins.
  • For cookie dough frosting (with hand or stand mixer):
  • Whisk together butter and sugar until light and fluffy
  • Add in vanilla and sift in flour
