How to make chocolate chip cookie dough coffee cups
Below you will find written instructions to follow and a video to teach you how to make these decadent chocolate chip cookies.
What you’ll need:
– One large oven-safe coffee mug (or more depending on how many people you’re serving)
– One large mixing bowl
– One smaller oven-safe cup and shot glass to make the cookie dough mold with
– An electric mixer or whisk
– Spoon or spatula to mix ingredients
– Measuring cups: 1 cup, 1/2 cup, and 1/3 cup
– Measuring spoons: 1 tbsp, 1/4 tsp
– 1/2 cup softened butter
– 1/2 cup brown sugar
– 1/3 cup baker’s sugar
– 1 tbsp vanilla extract
– 1 large egg (room temperature)
– 1/4 tsp salt
– 2 cups all-purpose flour
– 1 cup chocolate chips
How to make the cookie dough:
First, get out your large mixing bowl and electric or hand mixer. Then, soften the 1/2 cup of butter in the microwave for 10-15 seconds.
Place the butter in the bowl. Then, mix it until it becomes soft and creamy.
Add in the 1/2 cup of brown sugar and 1/3 cup of baker’s sugar. Mix these with the butter until they become thoroughly combined.
Next, add in the tablespoon of vanilla extract, a large egg, and 1/4 tsp of salt. Whisk to combine all ingredients.
Then, add in 2 cups of all-purpose flour and 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. Use a spatula to fold in and mix these last two ingredients until the flour is no longer visible. The mixture should be soft and doughy.
With the spatula, “pat” the dough down in the bowl to flatten it.
Next, oil your hands with whatever cooking oil you prefer. Then, form a ball of cookie dough with your hands, rolling it with your palms to create the shape.
Get out your coffee mugs, and put a small dab of melted butter in the bottom.
Cut a strip of parchment paper, placing it in the cup so it will stick to the butter. This helps prevent the cookie dough from sticking to the mug. Also, it will make it easier to remove the cookie dough cups from the mug.
Creating the cookie dough cups:
To start forming the cups, place your ball of cookie dough in the mug(s). Then, use the bottom of a shot glass or top of a smaller cup to create a mold in the dough. Press all the way down until it forms a cup shape in the dough, but not so hard that you break the mold.
Keep the cup or shot glass in the dough, and bake at 360 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Remember to use an oven-safe mug as well as the cup or shot glass for the mold.
Let the cups cool completely before moving on to the next step.
Then, remove the cookie dough cups from the mug using the ends of the parchment paper.
Now, melt the other 1/2 cup of chocolate chips on the stove or in the microwave. Then, use a small spatula to line the insides of the cookie dough “cups” with the chocolate.
Next, dip the tops of the cups in the chocolate, and use the spatula to smooth it around the insides and rim.
Repeat with additional cookie dough cups if you wish.
Refrigerate until the chocolate hardens.
After it hardens completely, add the coffee of your choice and enjoy!
Don’t forget to add your favorite creamer or sugar! Top it off with whipped cream for an extra sweet treat if you’d like.
This recipe makes drinking coffee even more delightful! After you’ve had your fill of coffee, you can still enjoy the delicious cookie dough cups. This dessert coffee recipe will surely become a hit among all your family and friends. Or, if you enjoy it alone, the unique coffee cups will add happiness and sweetness to your day.
Of course, due to the sugar content, you should probably have these sparingly. However, if you’ve been craving something sweet, there’s no harm in treating yourself every so often! Many people will find these too sweet to have for their morning coffee since it’s more of a dessert. So, you may want to save these for after dinner, or at least at some point in the afternoon.
You can also modify this recipe and make pure chocolate cups, sugar cookie cups, or any other flavor you prefer. Additionally, if you’re not a big coffee fan, feel free to fill your cup with other beverages such as:
- hot chocolate
- chocolate milk
- plant-based milk
