Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

WARNING: If you are on a diet/getting your summer bod ready;
DO NOT READ THIS POST!
Don't say I didn't warn you ;)

Like much of the world, I love cupcakes. I also love cookie dough. So, when I saw a recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes, I knew I HAD to make a gluten-free version!

Here's how it's done...

Make a batch of cookie dough according to whatever recipe you like. The easiest way to do this for non-GF eaters is to just buy a tube of pre-made dough. Roll it into small-ish balls...about 1 inch, place on a cookie sheet and freeze for several hours. Overnight is really best! That's what I did.

Next, whip up a batch of yellow cake mix according to package directions. Line a muffin pan with cupcake liners OR grease and flour your pan. Fill each cup about 2/3 of the way with batter.

Next, place a cookie dough ball into the center of the cake. Press into batter, and be sure to completely cover the dough with cake batter.

If you're like me and have no self control...eat the leftover cookie dough balls right outta the freezer...with a glass of milk. Don't be like me. Have some restraint.
Actually, I'd do it again, and again. Did I mention I love cookie dough?

Anyway, bake the cupcakes at 350 for about 10 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

I chose to ice mine with chocolate frosting, but you can do whatever you like! They are even good without any frosting.
I took these little devils to the lake for Mike's birthday a couple weekends ago (which I still need to post pics of) and they were a hit! The four of us ate them ALL.

Perfect for your next party!

YUM. Sounds like a perfect way for me to gain 5 lbs in one sitting! :)

By the way, love the "Keep Calm and Have a Cupcake" sign. I think I need this one for my office: http://bit.ly/fKfuaR

I'm going to have to try this.. I love Betty Crocker's GF cake mixes. I haven't tried her cookies yet though. What kind of frosting did you use on these? They look yummy!

I recently did the same thing, but I didnt have cookie dough, so I put OREOS in them. They were absolutely delicious!!
