Soft and chewy cookie cups with a deliciously smooth chocolate pudding filling! A perfect chocolate indulgence!
Calling all chocolate lovers – two delicious chocolate treats rolled into one!
These soft and chewy cookie cups work very well with the smooth chocolate pudding filling. They are easy to make, so it’s easy to make a few batches for the holiday season.
How to make them
- Prepare the cookie dough.
- Take a small amount of dough and roll into a golf size ball.
- Using your fingers, press down and line the wells of a greased and floured muffin tray.
- Cook’s Tip: Take care not to press the dough too thin.
- While the cookie cups are baking, prepare the chocolate pudding filling. (You could also do this while the cookie cups are cooling.)
- Fill each cup to the top with chocolate pudding, and set on the counter to cool before transferring to the fridge to set. (And YES, the waiting is the hard part!)
- Dust with icing sugar or chocolate powder and serve with a glass of cold milk!
For a more exotic flavour, fill the cups with Chocolate Cardamom Pudding.
