The name says it all: chocolate chip cookie dough stuffed chocolate cupcakes with a smooth vanilla buttercream, garnished with mini chocolate chips- I forgot to show it in the video, but cover the balls completely in batter so that when you take the cupcakes out of the oven, the center doesn't form a well, as the dough sinks to the bottom.
The recipes from which the cupcakes were made are modified in terms of the ratio- I've done all the measurement conversions, so to make your life easier.
