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!

Snickers Chocolate Cookie Cups

Yield: 36-40 cookie cups

Ingredients:

Cookie Cups

3/4 cups butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup cocoa
1 tsp cornstarch
48 mini snickers bars

Frosting

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup shortening
2 cups powdered sugar
1/8 cup cocoa
1/8 cup peanut butter
1-2 tbsp water
caramel sauce

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a mini muffin tin.

2. Cream butter and sugars together until light and fluffy, 3-4 minutes.

3. Add milk, egg and vanilla extract and mix until well combined.

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!
