Mini M&M Cookie Cupcakes

Mini M&M Cookie Cupcakes 


I started with the basic chocolate chip cookie recipe from Nestle Toll-House
The recipe makes 48 mini cupcakes
I set the temperature for my oven to 350 degrees 
and baked them in a mini cupcake pan for 10 minutes
Be sure to generously spray the pans with a non-stick spray
The only changes I made to the recipe were adding 1 teaspoon of Cinnamon 
and I used 1 cup of chocolate chips and 1 cup of Mini M&M'S

For the Buttercream frosting:
2 sticks of butter (softened)
2-3 Tbsp. of Milk
4 Cups of Powdered Sugar
1 Tsp. of Vanilla
1/4 Tsp. of Salt (which I did not use because I used salted butter)

Cream together butter
Slowly add in other ingredients
use milk to keep your frosting smooth

Pipe frosting on cupcakes and top with additional Mini M&M's

THE COLORFUL DOUGH (in my new Kitchen Aid Mixer)

I used a cookie scoop to put even amounts of dough into the sprayed cupcake pans

When these are done it is common for the center to sink! Never fear the icing will cover this up!

Let them completely cool before pipping the frosting onto the cupcakes

Decorate with more Mini M&M's
