If you’re a fan of milk and cookies (and really, who isn’t?), then adding a cookie cup into your dessert repertoire is absolutely essential. Cookie cups, as their name implies, are cookies baked into a mug and lined with chocolate, so you can pour milk directly into your cookie and drink from it. The chocolate that lines the inside simultaneously keeps the cookie from becoming soggy and gives your milk a wonderful chocolately flavor. The cookies might be a little harder than a regular cookie in order to make them architecturally sound conveyers of milk, but this certainly doesn’t take away from the glorious experience of a cookie cup. Check out our video below for an easy recipe to make cookie cups at home:
1. Place room temperature butter into a mixing bowl and add brown and white sugar. Combine with a hand mixer or a whisk, as seen in the video.
2. Add egg into mixture until well incorporated.
3. Add the flour into the mixture 1/3 at a time. After adding 1/3, mix until combined and then continue with the next 1/3 until the flour is gone. When the flour is mixed in, add the chocolate chips into the batter. (We recommend mini chocolate chips because they’re easier to work with in the mold!) Place in the fridge for about 30 mins.
4. While the dough is chilling, melt chocolate chips in a double boiler or microwave.
5. Using your greased mug, place a small amount of cookie dough in the bottom of the cup, making sure it lines the bottom of the cup and is about 1/4 inch thick. Then, push dough around the side of the cup to form the walls of the cup, making sure dough is even. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 mins.
6. Once baked, brush the inside of the cookie cup with the melted chocolate. After it cools, slide the cookie cup out of the mug, fill with milk and enjoy!
