2 sticks of unsalted butter softend

0.75 cup sugar

0.75 cup light brown sugar

4 tablespoons milk

1 tablespoons vanilla

2.5 cup flour

0.25 teaspoons salt

1 cup mini chocolate chips

3 sticks of unsalted butter softend

1.5 cup light brown sugar

4 large eggs

2.67 cup flour

1 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoons baking soda

0.25 teaspoons salt

1 cup milk

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

3 sticks unsalted butter

0.75 cup packed light brown sugar

3.5 cup powdered sugar

0.5 teaspoons salt

2 tablespoons milk

1 teaspoons vanilla extract


To make the cookie dough:

Combine the butter and sugars in a mixing bowl and cream on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 mins. Beat in milk and vanilla until incorporated and smooth. Beat in the flour and salt until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. Using a cookie scoop, shape the dough into 1 inch balls. Freeze on a parchment lined sheet tray for one hour.

To make the cupcakes:

Preheat the oven to 350* and line two cupcake pans with paper liners. In a large bowl combine the butter and brown sugar. Beat together on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Mix in the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Whisk together. Add to the mixer on low speed, alternating with the milk. Add in the vanilla. Fill the cupcake liners 2/3 full with the batter. Place a frozen cookie dough ball on the top center of each cupcake, do not press down. Bake for 16-18 minutes.

To make the frosting:

Combine the butter and brown sugar in a mixing bowl and cream on high speed until light and fluffy. Beat in the powdered sugar on low speed until smooth. Beat in the salt, milk, and vanilla until smooth and combined. Frost the cupcakes with a star tip and sprinkle with mini chocolate chips.
