Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcakes

If the best part about these chocolate chip cookie cupcakes is the fact that they’re a cross between your favorite cooke and a cupcake, then the icing on the cake—cupcake—whatever, is that they are the consistency of a cupcake AND a cookie!

Freaking magic, that.

And you just do your normal thing, just like you were making a cupcake or a cookie.

For real—I think these are just about the most amazing cross-breed-food ever. LOL!

You can make this amazing cupcake-slash-cookie in about 5 minutes, then you just have to wait for them to bake. 

Seriously, they’re that easy.

And the ingredients? Exactly like the whole cookie-slash-cupcake would indicate.

You’re just going to start with almost a halfsies recipes…sort of. 

Although I’d normally just use room temperature butter for cookies, because we’re going for a cross with a cupcake, I decided it would be better to go with melted butter.

That way you’re still getting that awesome salted butter flavor, but you’re getting a little bit closer to the consistency of a cupcake batter.

But not all the way—we still want the cookie density, so hold on…

Now, you want to mix the flour into the liquid ingredients in 1/3 or so increments, unless you’re a psycho like me and just can’t remember until you’re jotting down how you made the magnificent chocolate chip cookie cupcakes.

So, basically, dump and mix.

That’s the ticket!

Then it’s on to the best part…the chocolate chips.

For real, if I had to think of a list of my favorite foods of all time, the list would start and end with chocolate chip cookies—because of chocolate chips.

They’re just such perfect little hugs for your tongue.

Now, I always use my mixer for the first mixing of cookies (or cupcakes), but once we get to the chocolate chips, I switch to a spoon, so that I don’t accidentally break up the chips…that would be a tragedy.

And, although I’m sure it would still taste amazing, let’s be honest, chocolate chips are best whole.

LOL!

At this point, because the dough was so stiff, I was a little worried I’d just made chocolate chip cookies instead of chocolate chip cookie cupcakes, but I forged ahead and scooped my batter-dough-whatever into the the cupcake pan.

Because I was invested—and just because I think one thing, that doesn’t mean it will come out of the oven that way…

(And, spoiler alert, yes, it tastes as amazing as it looks.)

But I did feel like I could make it just a wee bit more exciting.

I mean, cupcakes are iced and sometimes cookies have some icing…and icing is fun…

I just loved how these chocolate chip cookie cupcakes looked—but was it all hype?
