These cookie cups are made with a peanut butter cookie base, Nutella filling and a marshmallow on top!



  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 jar Nutella (23 tsp per cookie)
  • 16 large marshmallows


1. Beat the butter until creamy, about 2 minutes.
2. Add the brown and white sugar. Mix well, until fluffy.
3. Add the peanut butter and egg and mix well.
4. Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in another bowl, then add to the sugar butter mixture. Mix well.
5. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
6. When ready to make the cookie cups, remove dough from fridge.
7. Make balls of dough that are about the size of a ping pong ball (about 1.5 inches in diameter).
8. Press the balls into discs that are about 2.5 – 3 inches in diameter (they could need to be slightly bigger depending on the size of your cupcake pan).
9. Press the dough into a greased cupcake pan. You want the dough to go about halfway up the sides of the cup.
10. Refrigerate for about 10 minutes before baking.
11. Bake at 375 degrees for about 10-12 minutes.
12. If you want a deeper cup once baked, use a measuring spoon to press down on the cookie a little bit. Allow to cool in the pan for 3-4 minutes before removing so that the cups don’t fall apart as you remove them from the pan.
13. Cool cookie cups on a wire rack.
14. Once the cookies have cooled, add 2-3 tsp of Nutella into each cookie cup.
15. Place a marshmallow on top of the nutella, standing the marshmallow up like a barrel.
16. Bake at 300 degrees for 3-4 minutes. To brown the top the the marshmallows, broil for an additional 3 minutes.
17. Remove the cookie cups from the oven and use a fork to gently pat down the marshmallow so it is flat and covers the nutella well.
