Ringing in the year on a sweet note with these cute cuppies, albeit a few days late! How can I not get excited about these easy to make kid-friendly desserts. Double Chocolate Cookie cups filled with chocolate ganache and topped with M&Ms. The name itself is enough to make the mouth water! The kids were delighted, and the husband wanted one too! I have adjusted the recipe to make 4 cookie cups. The recipe can be doubled or tripled.
Ingredients: Yield 4
- All Purpose Flour - 6 tbsp
- Butter - 2 tbsp
- Granulated Sugar - 2 tbsp
- Brown Sugar - 2 tbsp
- Cornstarch - 3/4 tsp
- Water - 1/2 tbsp
- Vanilla Extract - 1/4 tsp
- Baking Soda - 1/4 tsp
- Cocoa Powder - 1 1/2 tbsp
- Salt - a fat pinch (1/8 tsp)
- Mini Chocolate Chips - 2 tbsp
- Coffee Granules - a pinch (optional)
- M&Ms - 1/3 Cup (more or less, I did not really measure, sorry!)
For the chocolate ganache:
- Chocolate Chips 3 tbsp
- Butter - 1 tsp
- Milk - 1 tsp
Preheat oven to 375 F. Grease a muffin tin with butter and set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk together the cornstarch and water and set aside. In another bowl, whisk together the butter and sugars till smooth. Add the cornstarch mix, vanilla extract and coffee granules and give it another good whisk. Now add flour, baking soda, salt and cocoa and combine, gently. Fold in chocolate chips. Divide the dough into 4 equal parts and press down into the prepped muffin tin. Bake for about 8 minutes, take the muffin pan out and using the back of a spoon or something round (refer here) press down to make a cup. Return to the oven and bake for another 4 or 5 minutes, till done. If required, press down again while the cookie is still warm. Let it cool till the cookie cups firm up and then transfer to a cooling rack. Once completely cooled down, fill with M&Ms, ice-cream , Nutella or chocolate ganache and serve.
Cheers to a wonderful new year!
