HOT CHOCOLATE COOKIE CUPS – THE BEST CHRISTMAS COOKIE RECIPE!

These hot chocolate cookie cups are made with ready-to-bake sugar cookie dough and pudding cups! They are very easy to make and are a super fun Christmas dessert and are perfect for Christmas parties, cookie exchanges or just to put a smile on someone’s face!

Ingredients

1 package of sugar cookies – Ready to bake
4 cups ready to eat pudding cups
Mini marshmallow bites
Mini candy canes
White chocolate candies
Christmas Sprinkles

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350.
Place a piece of ready-to-bake cookie dough in the bottom of each mini-baking cup. Using your fingers, gently press the dough up and along the side of the pan to make a cup shape.
Bake for 10 minutes. Immediately after taking the cookies out of the oven, take the end of a wooden spoon (or similar) and gently reshape the “cup shape” by widening the center and flattening the bottom of the cup.
Bake for 2 more minutes.
Remove from oven and allow cookies to cool completely. Once cooled, use the tip of a knife to gently pull out the cookie cups (you may have to turn them gently, but they should come out easily).
Using a sharp knife, carefully cut the mini candy canes and create a “cup handle” with the curved section and a “straw” with the rest of the candy cane.
Melt the white chocolate. Once melted, dip the end of the curved piece of candy cane into the white chocolate and attach the candy cane handle to the cookie cup (see notes if you have trouble keeping the candy cane handle attached). Allow the handle to dry and set.
Just before serving, place the chocolate pudding in the cup. Add the marshmallow pieces, sprinkles and the “straw” from the candy cane.

Recipe Notes

If you are not serving the cups right away, wait until you put the pudding and ingredients in them – fill them up just before you serve!
NOTE, these are NOT mini marshmallows, but mini bites of marshmallow – you can usually find them by the hot chocolate in the supermarket – see the link to see the product!
As for the candy cane handle… if you have trouble getting the handle to “stick” to the cup Follow this advice.
TIP: after dipping the candy cane in the white chocolate, keep the handle in the cup and keep it in the freezer for about 30-60 seconds so that the chocolate hardens. Once it can stick without you holding it, place it in the freezer for another 1-2 minutes to help it dry quickly!
