Cookie Dough Filled Cookie Cups

All you have to do is make some regular cookie dough…
PhotobucketBake it in some muffin tins.
PhotobucketWhen they’re done-ish pull them out and squish the center down.
Your filling needs a nice place to sit.
PhotobucketThen make some MORE cookies dough.
BUT leave out them eggs.
Pipe it into the cookie couch you made…
PhotobucketDude. That’s it.
Now eat.
PhotobucketAnd don’t you dare say that they’re too rich.
I’ll find you and it won’t be pretty.

If that’s not enough cookie dough for you…

  2. Jannet Y.

    Wow! This looks so yummy! I will surely try this when I get home. Do you think adding colors to it would be nice? I hope so!

    Thanks for asking!


  3. Misty

    Ooohhhhhh!!!!! I love to take two warm chocolate chip cookies and put cookie dough between them. This sounds like a similar idea, but less messy!

  4. I have never and WILL never utter the phrase, “that is too sweet.” Who are those people?!?

    Shelly…these make me very, very happy. I think this recipe is going to propel me into “best mom ever” status with the kiddo.

  5. There’s so much I want to saaaaaaaay!

    Firstly: This here recipe is genius. This is it!
    Secondly: I will have to remember your disclaimer – it is also genius. I will use it the next time someone whines about buttercream being “too buttery” – get outta here!
    Thirdly (is that a word? Yes I think?) you are gorgeous in your new pic! Love it!

    Holy Cow! I am fixing to make these NOW! My daughter just said we HAVE to a make these for a snack tonight! If I make them now, they will be my snack and supper too! It is healthy right? I mean it does have milk in it:-)

  7. Nice! Our standard family chocolate chip cookie recipe has mint instead of vanilla, which kindof hides any richness that one might have a problem with… not that I would! πŸ˜‰ NOM!

  8. Pam

    These look fabulous! My daughter wants me to make them right away.

    I do have a couple questions: what tip did you use to pipe the filling? and do these need to be refrigerated? thanks!

    1. shelly

      I used a large round Wilton 1A tip, but you could easily snip off the edge of a ziplock bag!
      I didn’t refrigerate these…The filling does have butter in it, but no eggs. If you feel more comfortable refrigerating them, then that’s fine too!

    The first time I heard my mother say, “Oh! This is just too rich!” I was 15 and almost certain I was adopted.

    I think she would say that these were too rich…

    thankfully…my father would LOVE them!

  10. I’ve never understood this “too rich” or “too sweet” business. My father and brother try to use it on me all the time. But I just won’t have it!

  11. ColleenB

    Oh, you’re wicked. I’m on a diet and you show something like this, but what the heck, a person can have a sweet treat every now and then now can’t we?
    I just know that I will be making these. A way to a man’s heart is through is stomach.
    Thanks for all your Awesome recipes

  12. I love when someone says “wow this chocolate fudge is a little too sweet for me.” Really? REALLY? It’s fudge. Sadly, I don’t think I know what it means to be “too sweet.” A cute little baby girl, in a pretty pink tutu, yep, too sweet. Food? No comprendo.
    These look fabulous!!

  13. Cindy

    I made this for dinner tonight, it came together so quick and everyone loved it! Including Mr. Picky 4 year old that won’t eat anything besides

    hash browns and chicken nuggets. Thanks for a great recipe!!

  14. This was the week I was going to not bake sweets at night when I get home from work in an effort to prepare for the upcoming swimsuit season. Until i saw this post yesterday. So yep, I broke the no sweets rule and made them. And I ate one last night and one for breakfast. Breakfast of champions right? Totally worth the swimdress I’ll have to wear this summer to cover up the sins of the winter aka cookie dough cups and cupcakes.

  15. There is drool on my chin. Drool. It’s your fault. But I’ll forgive you because making these will earn me massive points with the family. MASSIVE POINTS!!!! Can’t wait!!!

  16. Your blog is so cute and witty, I can’t get enough! And anyone that doesn’t like cookie dough and chocolate chip cookies does not have a soul. Yes, I said it.

  17. Be still my heart…. I think I’m in heaven! Okay, just added this to my must make (asap) list. Thanks a bunch for adding 10 more pounds to my backside. AJ@queenofmynest

    I cannot wait to use the phrase, “be prepared to get your socks rocked”. Classic. And these cupcakes…same!

  19. Marsi

    These are redicilous. I made these yesterday and brought them to work. They were gone within 10 mins and EVERYONE was raving about them!!! They are not Weight Watcher friendly…and I advise moderation (like with 2 cups of butter it would be any different)…but i did advise if anyone went into sugar shock it was not my fault!! GREAT RECIPE!!! I will be back for more of your stuff!

  20. Michelle Thayer

    I made these yesterday and they are delish. The only change I would recommend is using a little less salt. I also had trouble with how much to put in each liner – I tried two rounded tablespoon fulls but it ended up being too much and I hate to bake them much longer than 12 minutes. I know to use a little less next time! πŸ™‚

  21. Diana

    Yet again another amazing dessert…but are you aware of how funny you are? I acutally laugh while ready most of your posts.

  22. Elise

    I just wanted to thank you for posting this! I made these (which thanks to your instructions was super easy) and they turned out amazing! I’m pretty sure my boyfriend may propose to me based on my feeding these to him!
