Mini chocolate filled chocolate chip cookie cups are the perfect bite-sized treat for the holidays or any occasion.
There are few cookies as comforting and well-loved as a chocolate chip cookie, and in this time of year devoted to cookie making and baking it seems only fitting to include the tried and true favorite in the mix. Now you might argue that a chocolate chip cookie isn’t fancy or festive enough to be a holiday cookie, to which I say — make chocolate chip cookie cups!
Need a little treat to brighten your day or something sweet that’s elegant enough for your cookie platter this year? Small yet satisfying cookie cups are the answer.
Chocolate chip cookie cups are chocolate chip cookies all dressed up in their best party attire. The mini tart-like cookies are charming bite-sized and extra-chocolatey versions of the cookie we all know and love.
These cookie cups are brimming with chocolate from top to bottom. First there’s a chocolate chip studded cookie crust, then a fudgy chocolate filling and finally to finish it all off a sprinkle of mini chocolate chips on top.
How to make chocolate chip cookie cups:
Cookie cups are at their core chocolate chip cookie dough baked in a mini muffin pan to create little cups rather than round cookies that can be filled any manner of ways. The gluten-free, paleo and vegan dough comes together quickly with only a spoon and a bowl needed. A quick chill in the fridge and it’s ready to bake. Unlike many holiday cookies these cookie cups require no rolling, simply press the dough into and up around the edges of a well-greased muffin pan with your fingers.
A few minutes in the oven, and out come golden brown cookie cups ready to cool and fill. The filling is an easy chocolate fudge that’s simply melted and stirred together before being poured into the cooled cups and topped with even more chocolate in the form of mini-chocolate chips.
Kid-friendly, yet sophisticated enough for the grown-up set, these cookie cups are a sweet treat that will satisfy any cookie or chocolate craving during the holiday season or any time of year.
