New This Month

Inspired by Mom's homemade cookies (somehow even more appealing at back-to-school time), these chocolate chip cupcakes with a cookielike top would be a tasty addition to a picnic on a sublime weekend afternoon or to a special someone's lunch box.

    I made this today and was not happy. I followed all the directions (and I double checked everything) and they came out tasting like corn bread. The cupcakes were overflowed and cooked on the oven pan twice!! Also the chocolate went the bottom. I am not pleased and am not making this again.

    Very yummy and quick! I halved the recipe and it made about 8 cupcakes, there was not a lot of batter. Since there are 3 eggs and I halved it, I put in 1 large egg and 2 tablespoons more milk. I cut the sugar a little and the butter by 2 tablespoons, great results. I cut up my chocolate easter bunny to put in the cupcakes, great use of it! I did not take the advice and just greased my tins, bad idea! Use paper liners. Overall, great cupcake, very light and fluffy.

    just made these and they came out great!! i filled the cups a little higher than normal which made them come out nice and round at the top, but they also needed to be baked for an extra 5 minutes. my whole family loved them and my brother said "8 out of 10." best when eaten while they're still warm:)

    These ended up amazing! just remember to fill in the cups more than normal cupcakes because these don't rise.

    These are excellent, they taste just like the name says, a chocolate chunk cookie that turned into a cupcake. The chunks are key here for big pockets of chocolate deliciousness :-)

    I've already commented on these cupcakes and I still find them one of the best and easiest recipes I've EVER found. I agree with 'waniebesh' and saving some chips to put on top works very well. I only bake 1 pan at a time to avoid burning them. I recommend this recipe to everyone!
