  • Muffin Liners
  • Muffin Tin
  • Large Bowl
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Hand mixer



  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • ¾ cup milk
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 17.5 ounces chocolate chip cookie mix 1 package


  • ½ cup butter softened
  • ½ cup cocoa
  • teaspoon vanilla
  • 2⅔ cup powdered sugar
  • ½ cup whipping cream (or whole milk)
  • 15 mini chips ahoy cookies



  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line muffin tins with cupcake liners.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the eggs, oil, milk, sour cream, and vanilla extract and mix until thoroughly combined.
  • Add in the cookie mix and stir until smooth.
  • Fill cupcake liners about 3/4 of the way full, then bake for 18-22 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Cool completely


  • Cream the butter in a medium bowl (whip on high for 2-4 minutes).
  • Blend in the cocoa powder, and vanilla then slowly add powdered sugar, alternately with the cream.
  • Beat with an electric mixer, until the desired texture is achieved (you can add more or less powdered sugar depending on how thick you want your frosting).
  • Frost cooled cupcakes.
  • Top with a mini Chips Ahoy cookie.


  • We recommend using sour cream for this recipe though, because of the fat content. Plain Greek yogurt is often fat free, so it cookies a little differently.
  • You could use it, but we wouldn’t recommend it. It will make the cupcakes a little bit of a weird texture, because it cooks differently. Sour cream works best for this recipe.
