THIS IS IMPORTANT. what is the absolute best cupcake recipe EVAR? bonus points if it uses a box mix.

Cookie Dough Cupcakes

1 recipe white cake batter (I just used a boxed mix)
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 T. granulated sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Prepare your favorite white cake mix or a boxed mix as directed. Set this aside (DO NOT BAKE IT YET!).
In a separate bowl, mix the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar together. Beat in flour and powdered sugar.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Fill paper-lined cupcake cups half full with the white cake batter.
Place a tablespoon of filling in the center, then cover with remaining white cake batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 17-22 minutes.

Buttercream Frosting (note: I made a half recipe of this and it made more than enough for the cupcakes)
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
4 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Cream the sugar, shortening, and butter together in a mixing bowl. Add milk and vanilla until creamy.
