Hot Chocolate Cookie Cups

Little cups of hot chocolate in the form of cookies!

I loved making these little cookie cups! I had seen the idea of a cookie cup on Pinterest where I get a lot of my inspiration from and then the idea for hot chocolate just came to me. What with it being winter and all, the most desirable hot beverage most of us crave is a big mug of hot chocolate and if I had some I would top mine with a big squirt of whipped cream and lots of marshmallows :) So yeah that was the inspiration, but these are little bites of that warmth you get and I know you will love them. The candy canes are optional but they make cut handles or you could use pretzels or get creative :)

Check out my other cookie recipes for more inspiration!


Prep: 30 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes
Serves: 8 cookie cups

NOTE: every ingredient I use is vegan so make sure you check your ingredients if you're following a Vegan lifestyle.


100g Caster sugar
150g Plain flour
1 tsp Vanilla extract
80g Butter melted
50g Chocolate Chips
1020g Chocolate melted
40 Mini marshmallows
Mini candy canes optional


✿Preheat the oven to 180℃ and grease a cupcake tin with a little oil or melted butter.
Place the sugar, vanilla and melted butter into a bowl and whisk together. Then add in the flour and mix until you have a dough-like consistency.
Lastly fold in the chocolate chips till evenly combined.
Take a couple of tablespoons of the dough and press into one of the cupcake holes to make a cup shape and make sure to make a hole in the middle. This can be quite messy and I spent time making the cups look neat but it is up to you how you want them to look in the end.
Place into the oven to bake for 9-10 minutes or until golden brown. 
Once baked remove from the oven and leave to cool completely in the tins before removing.
Whilst the cookies are cooling melt the chocolate in the microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring inbetween to make sure it is smooth. 
Once the cookie cups are cool, spoon out 2-3 tbsp of the chocolate into each cups and then top each one with 5 mini marshmallows. Dip both ends of the candy cane into some chocolate and attach on the side of each cup to look like a handle - you might just have to hook it on if it won't stick!
Place the cookie cups in the fridge to set for about 1 hour then you can place them in an airtight container at rom temperature. Keep them covered so they don't harden or stale. Enjoy!
