Ingredients

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups:

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter , room temperature (170 grams)
  • 1 cup packed light or dark brown sugar (215 grams)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar (100 grams)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (240 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips (112 grams)

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Frosting:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter , room temperature (113 grams)
  • 3/4 cup packed light or dark brown sugar (160 grams)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour , see Note(60 grams)
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/4-1/2 cup heavy whipping cream (60-125 ml)
  • 1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips (112 grams)

Instructions

Make the cookie cups:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a mini muffin pan.
  • With an electric mixer, beat the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until smooth and creamy, 2-3 minutes. Mix in the egg, then the vanilla. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt and mix until combined. Add the mini chocolate chips.
  • Fill mini muffin pan cups half full. Bake until edges are golden but center is still soft, about 12-14 minutes. Let cool in the pan about 5 minutes, then carefully transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough.

Make the frosting:

  • With an electric mixer, beat the butter and brown sugar until smooth and creamy, 2-3 minutes. Mix in vanilla. Mix in flour and salt. Add 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream and beat until smooth. If frosting is still too thick, add more cream 1 tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached. Stir in mini chocolate chips.
  • Top cookie cups with the frosting and sprinkle additional mini chocolate chips on top, if desired.
NOTE:
  • If you are concerned about consuming raw flour, you can toast it first before adding it to the frosting. Cook in a skillet over medium heat, whisking constantly, for about 6-8 minutes until lightly toasted. Let cool before using.
