Ingredients

  • Cookie Layer:
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, loosely packed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips
  • Cake Layer:
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • Vanilla Buttercream
  • 2 sticks of butter, softened
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon of milk, if needed
  • Cooking Directions

    For cookie layer: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Sift flour, baking soda, and salt together and set aside in a bowl.

    Beat butter and sugar together in the bowl of an electric mixer until it???s light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and beat until combined. Add in dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips. Line a muffin tin with liners and give each a quick spritz of non-stick spray. Using a spoon also sprayed with non-stick spray, press about 1 1/2 tablespoons of cookie dough into the bottom of each liner.

    For cupcake layer: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until combined.

    Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Add half of the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. Add the milk. Once mixed, add remaining dry ingredients. Using an ice cream scoop, drop batter on top of cookie dough mixture. Bake cupcakes at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes.

    For vanilla buttercream: Cream butter in the bowl of an electric mixture until completely smooth and creamy. With the mixer on low speed, add in powdered sugar slowly. Gradually increase mixer speed and add vanilla, then beat for 2-3 minutes, scraping down sides and bottom of the bowl. If frosting is too thick, add milk 1 teaspoon at a time until desired consistency is reached If it???s too thin, add sugar gradually until it thickens. Frost cupcakes and top with sprinkles.

    To finish: Top with frosting, sprinkles, and chocolate chip cookies.

    Note: You can double the chocolate chip cookie recipe above and used the second half to bake cookies to decorate the tops of the cupcakes.
