Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Icing

Who doesn't like cookie dough? Well, me actually! I'm not one to dig into raw cookie dough before it's baked. Now once a cookie is baked, watch out! I had a request for chocolate cupcakes and decided to see what all the hype was about and try the chocolate chip cookie dough icing. And guess what? I really enjoyed this icing. It was delicious on its own and tasted similar to cookie dough. So am I raw cookie dough convert? Probably not, but I love this icing and you will too!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Icing

2 sticks butter (room temperature)
1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
2 and 1/3 cups powdered sugar
2/3 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup mini chocolate chips

With a stand mixer, beat together butter and brown sugar until light and creamy. Beat in powdered sugar, flour, salt, milk, and vanilla extract until smooth. Add more or less powdered sugar and milk until desired consistency is reached. Stir in chocolate chips.
