Chocolate Cookie Cupcakes

I have not shared a cupcake recipe in a while and as I am always, probably too much, making them and experimenting I thought it was time to write another invention up on the blog! Here is my recipe for Chocolate Cookie Cupcakes;

  • 25g of Cocoa Powder
  • 100g of Sugar
  • 1tsp of Baking Powder
  • 1/2tsp of Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 200g of Butter

  3. Sift the sugar into a bowl and add 100g of the butter then cream together until smooth
  4. In a separate bowl sift the flour, cocoa, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda together
  5. Then slowly add the dry mixture to the creamed butter mix until crumbly
  6. Add the 2 eggs and whisk until smooth
  7. Finally add the vanilla extract and milk and mix in thoroughly

  9. Bake in the oven for 16-18 minutes
  10. Once cooked allow to cool thoroughly
  11. Once cool sift the icing sugar into a bowl
  12. Then add the final 100g of butter and cream until smooth
  13. Smash the cookies into small pieces and add them to the mix and stir until combined
  14. Use a pallet knife to decorate the top of the cupcakes with the frosting
  15. Then enjoy!

These cupcakes were made on a day when I made 3 batches of different flavours for my fiance to take into work, the first 3 batched were from my trusted collection of cupcake recipes but for the third I wanted to try something different. I settled on Chocolate Cookie Cupcakes, just because really. I find that I think of my best combinations from flavours when the cupboards are almost bare and I have to be inventive. These cupcakes were enjoyed greatly, in honesty not my favourite but it seems it is a boy thing!
