How to Make Mint Chocolate Cookie Cups

I’m a huge fan of the combo of mint and chocolate!  Combine that with the fact that these cookie cups are bite-sized and you know you’ve got the excuse to eat a couple of them.

Chocolate Cups

  • flour
  • cocoa powder
  • egg
  • vanilla
  • butter
  • baking soda
  • salt sugar

Stir together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, I used a handheld mixer to cream together the butter and sugar. Once you have an even consistency, add the egg and vanilla. Make sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl to get everything mixed together well.

Add the dry ingredients to the bowl and mix until smooth.

Add about 1 teaspoon of the batter into the cavities of the mini muffin pan that you’ve sprayed well. Works perfectly in a 24-count mini muffin pan.

Bake them up and as soon as you remove them from the oven you want to press in the center of each to form the cup shape. You can use the back of a small measuring teaspoon, shot glass, etc… anything that is the size, shape you need to form into a cup. The backside of a cookie scoop or the end of a large wooden spoon works too.

After cooling for a few more minutes you’ll let them cool completely on a wire rack.

Mint Frosting

  • butter
  • powdered sugar
  • mint extract
  • heavy crean
  • green food coloring
  • Andes Mint piece (or half of an andes mint or other chocolate mint candies)

In a large mixing bowl cream together the butter, powdered sugar, and heavy cream until smooth. Add the mint extract and green dye to cream that great color and flavor.

Use a piping bag to fill the centers of the chocolate cookie cups. If you don’t have a piping bag you can improvise using a baggie and cutting off one of the corners to create your own DIY piping bag.

Andes Mint Chocolate Cookie Cups are an easy baked treat that is packed with that chocolate and mint that you love! These bite sized desserts are perfect for St. Patrick's Day, showers, birthdays or anytime.
