Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Frosting Recipe

My daughter absolutely ADORES cookie dough.  Years ago, I made one type of chocolate chip cookie dough frosting for birthday cupcakes, and it was a hit but I do believe this one is better!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Frosting Recipe


  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup softened (not melted!) unsalted butter
  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4-1/2 cup half n half or whipping cream (depends on desired consistency - may need more)
  • 1/2-3/4 cup mini chocolate chips


  1. Beat brown sugar and butter in stand mixer until smooth and creamy
  2. Mix in flour, vanilla, salt, and baking soda until well combined
  3. Slowly add in cream/half n half until desired consistency
  4. Fold in 1/2 cup chips
  5. (I use additional chips to sprinkle over the top once I have frosted the cake or cupcakes!)
