Snickers Chocolate Cookie Cups

By now, you all know that I love to take something simple and take it up a notch. These cookie cups do just that! After the Mini Strawberry Cheesecake Cookie Cups I made for Valentine’s Day, I couldn’t wait to make another cookie cup. They are easy and just too fun!

These start with a chocolate cookie base that’s stuffed with a mini Snickers bar. Then it’s topped with a light chocolate peanut butter icing. Perfection!

4. Add dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Dough will be thick.

5. Make balls of about 2 large tsp in size and press into the bottom of each mini muffin cup. Press the center down just a bit to make an indention, where you’ll add the mini snickers later. You want each cup to only be about 3/4 full.

6. Bake for 8-9 minutes.

7. Remove from oven (the centers may look a little undone, but they will cook more as they sit) and press mini snickers into the center of the cookie cups.

8. Allow to cool for 3-4 minutes in the muffin tin. The mini snickers will start to melt.

9. Remove cookies to a cooling rack to finish cooling.

10. To make the frosting, beat the butter and shortening together until smooth.

11. Add the powdered sugar to the butter mixture, one cup at a time, and mix until smooth.

12. Add peanut butter and cocoa and mix until smooth.

13. Add 1-2 tbsp of water until the icing is the right consistency.

14. Top the cookie cups with the icing, then a little bit of caramel sauce.

Enjoy!
