A delicious cupcake made with chocolate chip cookie butter and topped with a chocolate chip cookie frosting.


Ingredients for cupcakes:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (if using Biscoff, substitute 2 tbsp of flour with unsweetened cocoa)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used minis)
  • 1/2 cup melted unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chip cookie butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla

Ingredients for buttercream:

  • 1/2 cup softened unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chip cookie butter
  • 1 & 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa (only if using Biscoff)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and prepare a 12 cup muffin tin with cupcake liners.
  2. In a medium bowl, toss together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and chocolate chips. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the melted butter, sugar, egg, cookie butter, milk and vanilla. Slowly add the dry ingredients and gently fold together until just combined.
  4. Divide the batter among the 12 cupcake liners and bake for about 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool completely before frosting.
  5. To make the buttercream, use an electric mixer and cream together the butter and cookie spread. Combine the icing sugar. Then add the vanilla, salt and milk. Blend until smooth and fluffy.


Cupcakes can be stored in an airtight container and refrigerated for up to 4 days. Bring to room temperature before serving.
