Fudge Stripe Cookie Cups

Fudge Stripe Cookie cups

These dark chocolate cups have a surprise inside: a crunchy little fudge stripe cookie!

I just love those fudge stripe cookies.  Even when I am trying to watch my calorie intake, I get the little 100 calorie packs as a treat.  They are just soooo yummy!  Those little mini cookies were the inspiration for these cookie cups.  They fit perfectly inside, and make for a wonderful surprise when you bite into one!

Fudge Stripe Cookie Cups!

So much fun!  Best use of diet food  EVER!

Here’s how we made them: (for a printable recipe click here)

INGREDIENTS: (makes 44-48 mini cookie cups)

  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • One box of Keebler Mini Fudge Stripe cookies
  • One tub of vanilla frosting.
  • A little bit of melted chocolate to drizzle on top, if desired

DIRECTIONS:

  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  • Make cookies by combining butter, sugar, egg, vanilla and cocoa powder and beating until completely combined.
  • Add other dry ingredients gradually, mixing with beaters until too heavy to beat. Use clean hands to knead dough into a soft ball.
  • Use a small cookie scoop (I used a scoop that holds 1/2 Tablespoon of batter) to portion out your dough into mini muffin tins that have been sprayed with non-stick spray.
  • Use a tart shaper or a wooden spoon to press the dough into a cup shape (really, the tart shaper works best for this and you will use it again- I use mine all the time!)

Making cookie cups

  • Bake at 350F degrees for 7 to 8 minutes and remove from oven.
  • Press centers in a second time with the tart shaper and allow them to cool for just a couple of minutes.
  • Use a small paring knife to pop each cup out and allow them to cool completely on the counter.
  • Place one mini Fudge Stripe Cookie to each cup
  • Spoon frosting into a small bowl and microwave for 20-30 seconds, until soft.  Stir until smooth.
  • Spoon frosting into a sturdy zip-top bag and clip a corner off.  Pipe frosting over cookie to the top of each cup

  • Pipe chocolate stripes on top to decorate.
  • Allow frosting to firm up.
  • Enjoy!
