As all ingredients ready, we can start the process. First, preheat oven to 350 F and line with liners two 12 count muffin pan and set aside. Meanwhile, make the cookie cups by firstly cream butter and sugar in a large bowl with hand held mixer until turning to be fluffy and light in color (use medium speed). Mix in vanilla and egg and scrape don the sides as necessary. Combine flour, baking soda, salt and corn starch in separate bowl. Mix into the wet ingredients slowly. Stir chocolate chips and the dough will thicken.
Next press 1.5 tablespoons of dough to each muffin liner and bake for about 13 minutes. Remove from the oven as the edges start to slightly brown but the center remain soft. No bake longer than 13 minutes and allow the cookie cups to cool completely before frosting.
Next make the frosting. Cream brown sugar and butter at medium speed using electric or stand mixer with paddle attachment. Add vanilla and beat well. Stir salt and flour until doughy and beat the milk until fluffy. Next, gently fold them in chocolate chips and frost cooled cookie cups. Unfrosted cookie cups will stay fresh covered at room temperature for days while frosted one must be stored in refrigerator.
