There is no telling how many cake balls I have eaten in my lifetime and I love them, but every time I eat one, I think wouldn’t these be so yummy with a cookie in the middle? Well I put those yummy thoughts to good work and created these incredible Chocolate Covered Cookie Cups. They are just like cake balls except with a chewy chocolate chip cookie in the middle.

 


 

You bite into this creamy rich chocolate coating followed by a chewy chocolate chip cookie. It’s a whole new level of cookie greatness that you just have to try!

 


 

I’m so excited with how these indulgent little cookie cups turned out and the options are endless when it comes to what kind of cookie you bake for them. I started with a classic chocolate chip cookie, but I’m thinking peanut butter cookie cups and chocolate chocolate cookie cups would be quite tasty as well.

 


 

Move over cake balls! Chocolate Covered Cookie Cups are a new fave in this house!

 



 

They are so fun and festive and perfect for entertaining too! In fact, we served them at Baker’s “Cookies & Milk” Birthday Party and everyone loved them!

 


 

So gather these simple cookie ingredients along with some chocolate coating and fun sprinkles, and you’ll be well on your way to creating your new favorite cookies! Trust me!

 


 

Start by whisking together the flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl.

 


 

In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until creamy.

 

 

 

Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until well combined.

 

 

 

Gradually beat in the flour mixture.

 

 


Stir in the mini chocolate chips.

 

 

 

Place a heaping tablespoon of dough in each cup of a lightly greased mini muffin pan.

 

 

 

Gently flatten the dough into each cup with your fingers.

 

 

 

Bake for 12-15 minutes of until golden brown.

 

 

 

Cool cookie cups in muffin pan for 15 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough to make 4 dozen cookie cups.

 


 

Once cookie cups are completely cooled, melt the chocolate candy coating according to package directions.

 



 

Place one cookie cup at a time in the melted chocolate.

 


 

Spoon chocolate over the cookie cup so that it coats it completely.

 

 

 

Gently lift the chocolate covered cookie cup out of the chocolate with a spoon and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.

 

 

 

Decorate with sprinkles and let set at room temperature until chocolate is set.

 

 

 

Repeat with remaining cookie cups.

 

 

 

 

Have fun and enjoy!!!
