Two Peas and Their Pod: Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcakes

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcakes



I usually don't "do" cakes or cupcakes. We aren't big cake eaters and I hate wasting food. Cookies are much easier to pawn off on people and we can freeze the dough or leftovers. I checked out Martha's Cupcake book from the library and decided it was time to give cupcakes a chance. Of course, I chose to bake Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcakes. I just love my cookies, sorry, it is an addiction:) I am slowly branching out though...baby steps:)

A cookie and a cupcake comibined? Hmmm. I wasn't sure what to expect. Would it be more like a cookie or more like a cupcake?

I had a little trouble getting them out of the paper cupcake wrappers. The tops of the cupcakes were peeling off. I wasn't planning on frosting them so I flipped them over and I am so glad I did. The chocolate chips made them presentable.

I took these to a neighborhood event and they were the first thing to go. So were they more like a cookie or a cupcake? Bake them and you decide:) Either way they are a tasty treat.


Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcakes
Recipe from Martha Stewart


1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
3 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup milk (I used skim)
1 cup chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line 24 muffin cups with paper liners.
2. Whisk together the dry ingredients-flour, baking powder, and salt.
3. Cream the butter and sugars together on high speed, using a mixer. Mix until creamy and smooth. Add in the eggs, one at a time. Scrape down the bowl. Add in the vanilla and beat until smooth.
4. On low, add in the flour mixture in two batches, alternating with the milk. End with the dry ingredients. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand.
5. Pour batter into the muffin cups, use about a 1/4 cup. Bake cupcakes for about 20 minutes. Use a toothpick to test them. It should come out clean when they are done baking.
6. Transfer cupcakes to a wire rack and cool before removing papers.
7. I removed the papers and served the cupcakes upside down to show off the chocolate chips. You can make frosting if you wish.

I would have never known you had trouble getting them out of the wrapper- they look perfect! Glad the neighborhood enjoyed them.

Hope you two have some nice weekend plans. I'm hoping for lots of exercise and relaxing. Teaching Body Attack today, Body Step tomorrow, and have an 8 mile run planned for Sunday. Glad you are loving pump and combat! I am getting pump certified in November

Mmmmmmm... :P I LOVE cupcakes! These look so yummy and I like the fact you didn't put frosting on them, sometimes that can be a little too overpowering.

I just bought the cupcake book also. I like cupcakes - because they are smaller versions of cake and easier to give away! They look yummy to me!

I saw these in the book and couldn't figure them out either. I see how they're more cake, but do they taste like cookies?

I guess I'll have to make them and see.

Maria, this idea is very cool! I would even think to pair it with a small glass of a white sauce to present the whole cookies and milk dunking ritual!

My opinion is that you can never go wrong with chocolate chips. Everyone loves them. Nice job!

I was looking for something like this because my daughter's teacher is "anti-cupcake", but I have the cutest cupcake papers, so I thought I'd make cookies in them. Do the papers look nice enough to leave on once the cookie is baked in them? Would they be easy enough to remove for the kids to do it themselves when it's time to eat?
