The Place for the Healthy Foodie and Hurried Chef
A loooong time ago, back in San Diego, my friends and I slowly but surely became addicted to Pinterest. It seems like there is NOTHING you can’t find on that website, I mean. WOW.
Anyways, one of my friends stumbled onto this recipe and it was an immediate success in our office. I’ve made them multiple times and people love the treat.
Basically, it is cookie dough that you roll into a ball and bake. Then you use a shot glass to make an indent in the dough, which you promptly fill with Nutella (or Reese’s Peanut Butter cups, by the way).
Let me warn you, these are not a treat for the faint-hearted, hurried chef. They are a bit high maintenance and require an awful lot of “active” time in the kitchen and lots of clean up. In fact, every time that I make them, I think to myself “now I remember why I don’t make these more often.”
But then I eat one, and then another, and then another, and then I curse myself before having just one more. These things are delicious, and addictive. The recipe makes about fifty of these delicious cookie cups! I made them the other day as a treat for my fellow teachers, and they disappeared quickly. They are a great sweet to make for goody bags (since the recipe makes a ton) and birthday parties. Also, if you are going on one of those family vacations, they stay fresh for about a week! The original recipe link is here. Below I have pasted the recipe and instructions that I follow to save myself time and effort.
