Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup rainbow sprinkles, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1 batch Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (recipe below)
  • 1 batch Chocolate Chip Frosting (recipe below)
  • 12 mini chocolate chip cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp whole milk
  • 3 Tbsp mini chocolate chips

Chocolate Chip Frosting

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 5 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 3 Tbsp whole milk
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and line a cupcake tin with 12 papers.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer or in a large bowl with a hand mixer, cream together butter and sugar on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  • Add eggs in one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Mix in vanilla extract.
  • With mixer on low speed, beat in dry ingredients in 3 additions, alternating with the milk. Mix in each addition until just incorporated. Gently fold in chocolate chips and rainbow sprinkles.
  • Fill cupcake liners about 3/4 of the way with batter. Bake cupcakes for 17-20 minutes, until edges are golden and tester comes out clean.
  • Let cupcakes cool in tin for 5 minutes before moving to wire racks to cool completely.
  • Once cupcakes are completely cool, core out a small section from the middle (either using a cupcake corer or with a knife). Fill center of cupcake with about a Tbsp of cookie dough. 
  • Fill a pastry bag with frosting, fit with pastry tip (I like to use a Wilton 2A) and frost cupcakes. Top with additional sprinkles and mini chocolate chip cookies.
