First it is a beautiful Fall day in NWA. I am sitting out in our back yard enjoying the afternoon. Bella is searching for new treasures and I am thinking about desserts. It is after all Friday and Show Us Your Life Favorite Dessert Recipes. I love all Desserts with Chocolate you can't go wrong with Chocolate. I personally would rather eat dessert before any meal that is how much I love desserts and especially Chocolate. One of my favorite things to do is Bake and for the most part I usually make things with Chocolate. My top favorite desserts are:
Brownies with Frosting
Yellow Cake with no icing
Red Velvet Cake
Sugar Cookie with icing from Rick's Bakery
and so much more I am sure I just can't think of anymore!
I recently have made these Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes for a cook out we went to a few weeks ago and they are AMAZING.
1/12 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
1 (18.25 ounce) box yellow cake mix
1 1/3 cups water
1/3 cup canola oil
1. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, and sea salt; set aside. Beat the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar with an electric mixer in a lager bowl until smooth. Add 1 egg and the vanilla extract and beat until smooth. Mix in the flour mixture until just incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips; mixing just enough to evenly combine. Form the dough into tablespoon-sized balls; place onto a baking sheet, and freeze until solid, about 2 hours.
2. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees and line 24 muffin cups with paper liners.
3. Beat 3 eggs in a large bowl with an electric mixer to break up. Add the cake mix, water, and canola oil; continue beating for 2 minutes on medium speed. Spoon into the prepared cupcake liners, filling each 2/3 full. Place a frozen cookie dough ball on the top center of each cupcake.
4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the cake portion of the cupcake comes clean, about 20 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.
Footnote - this recipe contains raw eggs.
Frost and Enjoy!
I look forward to going through all the desserts on Show Us Your Life. So don't forget to stop by Kelly's Korner. Happy Friday!
