Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

The Pretty Packages Party
 is going on now thru November 6th.

So, on Tuesday I shared with you Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes that I saw at Whimsical Creations...they just looked so yummy.  Today, I decided to give them a try with a little twist.
Instead of vanilla cake I chose Dark Chocolate Cake.  I just had to see how they tasted.
My taste testers all agreed...YUMMY!
I frosted them with Food Processor Cream Cheese Frosting...super easy and super good. 
Look at that cookie dough goodness...mmmmmm!
The key is to make the cookie dough without the eggs and freeze them in balls for several hours.
Fill the cupcakes evenly with cake batter then add the frozen cookie dough balls.
The cupcake bakes but the cookie dough remains soft and gooey.
Can't you just taste it?!?! 
Check out Melanie's site to get all of the details on how to make these crazy good treats!

My quick and easy version:
Make a recipe of Nestle's Tollhouse Cookies
 (omitting the eggs and adding a couple of extra tablespoons of butter.)
Form cookie dough into large tablespoon sized balls.
Put in freezer for several hours or overnight.
When ready to make the cupcakes:
Prepare cake mix according to directions on package.  (I used Duncan Hines Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix.)
Fill cupcake liners 2/3 full with cake batter.
Top with frozen cookie dough ball.  (The batter covers the frozen ball during baking.)
Bake according to package.  (Mine took 19 minutes.)
Let cool in pans for about 10 minutes, then let them cool on rack.
Frost with frosting of your choice.  (I used Cream Cheese Frosting.)

Oh I like the dark chocolate idea very much. I have to tell you that I made my first cake balls last weekend. What a hit. I plan on making them for gifts during the holidays. Thanks for your inspiration.

What? These look outrageous. I made cupcakes with orange-tinted cream cheese frosting this weekend but my decorative piping didn't come out as lovely as yours.
