Chocolate Chip Cookie Crumb Frosting Recipe

0 Flares 0 Flares ×


One night, two years ago, I was laying in bed drifting off to sleep, and all of a sudden, this amazing idea popped in my head.  What if I baked cookies, stuck them in the food processor, and added them to frosting???  I was so excited.  I couldn’t stop thinking of all of the endless cookie and frosting flavor combinations I could make.   I only had one problem though.  I didn’t have a food processor, and I knew crushing cookies by hand wouldn’t give the frosting the appropriate texture.  Two years later, with a little help from my amazing new Kitchen Aid Food Processor, I am finally turning that late night thought into a reality… and might I say it’s a delicious reality.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Crumb Frosting Recipe

You’ll Need:

  • 2 cups cookie crumbs from your favorite baked chocolate chip cookies, pulsed in your food processor to a fine crumb-like consistency
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 7 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


Mix butter in mixing bowl until light and fluffy, approximately 2 minutes.  Add 5 cups of the sugar, milk, and vanilla. On the medium speed of an electric mixer, beat until smooth and creamy, about 3 minutes. Gradually add the remaining 2 cups of sugar, 1 cup at a time, beating after each addition for approximately 2 minutes.  Be sure that your frosting reaches a firm consistency that will pipe perfectly on top of cupcakes.


Pulse chocolate chip cookies for approximately 2 minutes until they reach a fine crumb-like consistency.


Using a spatula, gently fold cookie crumbs into frosting.


This Chocolate Chip Cookie Crumb Frosting is perfect for piping swirls on top of cupcakes, like I did, or even sandwiching your favorite cookies together.
