"Everything but the...." Cupcakes

Princess Alexis loves chocolate
Princess Alexis loves cookie dough
Princess Alexis loves brownies
so we came up with her "everything but the..." cupcakes

I've made cookie dough cupcakes for several years now...they're amazing!
1st Step
cookie dough recipe:
1 cup butter (softened)
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
4 Tablespoon milk
1 Tablespoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup mini chocolate chips
(white sugar is expensive in Jamaica, so I use only brown sugar)
roll into small balls and freeze overnight
2nd Step
I made a regular chocolate cake mix {whisper} from a box!
Mix the cake batter up...go ahead take a taste....I won't tell the kids!
3rd Step
Here is where we got creative
I had Alexis mix up some brownie batter
 and we stirred in a cup of chocolate chips.  Mmmmmm.
4th Step
divide the {lick fingers} cake batter into muffin tins
put a "dollop" of brownie batter in on the top of each cupcake
place one frozen solid cookie dough ball on the top of each one
bake {in a cozy warm oven}
until a toothpick inserted into just the cake batter comes out clean

I tried a different frosting recipe this time.
  As you can see, my large crystal brown suga' doesn't dissolve very well.
I usually just use powdered sugar in my frosting.
I was not happy with how this turned out so I won't share the recipe.
  The princesses loved it though, they thought it tasted like cookie dough frosting.

I keep mine in the ice box fridge so the ants don't get into it.
These are so much yummier cold.
Really they are!
