Brownie Cupcakes with Cookie Dough Frosting! Looking for a rich and indulgent cupcake recipe? Well look no further because I’m telling you this is the most indulgent cupcake I’ve ever eaten!
Brownie + cookie dough. Yes, this is what dreams are made of. I just made the Brownie Cupcake with Marshmallow Frosting and I loved the cupcake so much I decided to do one more version of it by making these.
What I would recommend is that you set aside half of the Cookie Dough Frosting to eat plain then use the rest for the cupcakes. I’ve never said this before but with that much frosting over a brownie cupcake you’ll have a hard to finishing one cupcake =).
This frosting would also be incredibly delicious over a lighter cupcake such as a vanilla or chocolate cupcake. If you don’t want to make cupcakes at the moment then just make a batch of this frosting to eat by the spoonful, that’s the beauty of it, you can because it’s egg free.
I’m in love with this frosting! Just think fluffy chocolate chip cookie dough and here you have it! Enjoy!
