■1½ cups light brown sugar, packed

■4 large eggs

■2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour

■1 tsp. baking powder

■1 tsp. baking soda

■¼ tsp. salt

■1 cup milk

■2 tsp. vanilla extract

■1 cup chocolate chips (semisweet or bittersweet)

To make the cupcakes

2.Using the paddle attachment on your mixer, combine the butter and brown sugar. Cream together on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, approx 3 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition and scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.

3.Whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a medium bowl.

4.Alternating add the dry ingredients to the mixer bowl with the milk on low speed, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients, mixing each addition just until incorporated.

5.Blend in the vanilla.

6.Fold in the chocolate chips with a spatula.

7.Divide the batter evenly between 24 cupcake liners. Bake for 18-20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

While the cupcakes bake and cool, prepare your cookie dough filling.

■4 tbsp. unsalted butter, at room temperature

■6 tbsp. light brown sugar, packed

■1 cup plus 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour

2.Add flour, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla and beat until smooth.

3.Stir in the chocolate chips.

4.Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until the mixture has firmed up a bit, (approx1 hour).

After cupcakes have cooled, fill the cupcakes by cutting a cone-shaped portion out of the center of each cupcake. Fill each hole with a chunk of the chilled cookie dough mixture.

For the frosting:

■3 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature

■¾ cup light brown sugar, packed

■3½ cups confectioners’ sugar

■1 cup all-purpose flour

■¾ tsp. salt

You. are. killing. me.

Those look SOOO good!!! But I'm afraid my trainer would rip me a new one if I even dared to eat just one of those.

But then again, what she doesn't know can't hurt her, right? Or me, for that matter!
