What do you get when you cross a yummy chocolate chip cookie with a classic cupcake (p.s. not a trick question)? A CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE CUPCAKE!!! And yes, it is as delicious as it sounds. I got some very good reviews on this one; I've been told that it is a "must try." Just keep in mind, in the video, I used double the amount of buttercream called for in my recipe to create those beautiful swirls. However, that makes it too sweet. If you follow the ingredients list listed below, it should come out to just the right amount. Just keep in mind while you pipe your buttercream to not pipe as much as I did. Happy baking!

P.S. This recipe makes 24 cupcakes.
