Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Icing/Filling

Posted by dmarvel

I saw mentions of an eggless chocolate chip cookie frosting, but no recipe here on CC. I found this one online and it is fantastic! My family simply loved it. I put it on brown sugar cupcakes (also from and they were to die for.

How many cups of icing does this recipe make? I would love to try it.
Barb5585---i checked out this recipe on and it says that it makes enough to frost 12 cupcakes. hope this helps.
Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! Thank you for posting this recipe!!!! I used it a multiple layer yellow cake, alternating cookie dough filling and vanilla frosting...and my guests couldn't stop raving! If you love raw cookie dough, this is the perfect fix!
Ok....tried this recipe for the first time today and my family ate it all before I could put it in the cake! 2nd batch, here I come! This will be used in a cake for next weekend, so I don't yet have the final reaction. However, the first reaction of my family was a big hit! In fact, my son wants this in his birthday cake on two weeks!
I used this to fill a chocolate cake for my friend that does not eat eggs and he loved it! Thanks for sharing!
does it have to be refrigerated?
I made a batch of dark chocolate cupcakes and put a dab of cookie dough inside them. I found the frosting to be too sweet, so I just used vanilla frosting from a can to ice them with and piped a swirl of the remaining cookie dough on top of each one. My co-workers raved about them and I got an order for a dozen from one, and another asked if I could do a whole cake like it. I will definitely be saving this recipe, thanks! :)
The cookie dough is AWESOME!!! Tastes just like it would in ice cream, thanks! :)
I saw that people have used yellow cake and chocolate cake...for the others of you who have used it, what did you use it with? just trying to decide for my daughter's 3rd will probably just be the filling--unless I leave out the chips for the outside/decorating....hmmmm
Do you have to refrigerate this once it is in the cake?
Could I just add the eggless cookie dough to a canned vanilla frosting? Would that also work? Thanks. :)
Wow this is so yummy. It's in my fridge right now! My new fave! Thanks for posting!
I tried this last night, made some white cupcakes and filled them with this cookie dough, they are DELICIOUS! I've gotten rave reviews from people at work saying it was the best cupcake they've ever had!
Hello, I made this for a homecoming cake and have ALOT left over can this be frozen and reused later for another cake?
When I make this filling for a cake, its always a big hit, no one every thinks of a cookie dough filling and I think they get excited about it. I always pair it with a marble cake. I give this rave reviews!
Hello, this may sound a bit daft but I'm not quite sure about one thing with this - when you add the cookie dough, are you mean to add it in little chunks (like you get in cookie dough ice cream) or are you meant to add it so it fully combines with the buttercream part?
I refrigerate mine until it gets hard and then add it to the frosting base in chunks. If the cookie dough is warm, it basically blends right into the frosting. I think it is a preference.
Thank you - I reckon a bit of both would be good :) Going to give this a try if I ever get some spare time!!
I made this yesterday. I combined mine completely together instead of in little chunks of cookie dough. This is amazing. I couldn't believe how well it turned out and tasted. It tasted exactly like I was hoping!
Looks like I've got a bunch of spare time on the horizon, so I may well get to try this out sooner than I thought! I'll go for fully combining :)
