How about a way to make chocolate chip cookies special enough to serve to company? One that creates a cookie bowl perfect for a scoop of ice cream? Chocolate chip cookie cups elevate the cookie to a whole new level.
I first made these delicious chocolate chip cookie cups years ago for a dinner and our guests were completely impressed with the “ice cream bowl made from a chocolate chip cookie!” Little did they know it took about 10 minutes to prepare – and that I baked them way in advance which made the dessert easy to pull together while we visited. #winwin
Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups
I suppose I could’ve titled this dessert “chocolate chip cookie a la mode” since it’s that, too – the cup shape of the cookie pretty much demands a scoop of ice cream. It’s waiting – no, begging for it.
Don’t believe me? Look at this:
Fresh out of the oven, the cookie cups look nice and puffy, but as they cool the centers sink – just like they’re supposed to!
And that indentation just screams, “put ice cream here,” don’t you think? It makes a perfect little bowl for a scoop of vanilla or whatever flavor you’d like with your cookie.
Drizzled with homemade chocolate syrup, it makes such a pretty presentation – your guests and family will never realize it’s just a cookie with ice cream plopped on top.
Easy? Check. Fun? Absolutely. Special? That, too. Best of all? Yummy.
