Chocolate Cookie Cups

Makes 12 cookie cups
Prep time: 15 mins - Cook time: 18 to 20 minutes.


150g of unsalted butter, softened to room temperature and extra for greasing.
200g of granulated sugar.
1 egg.
200g of plain flour.
1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda.
A pinch of flaky sea salt.
100g dark or milk chocolate chips.
12 tablespoons of hazelnut chocolate spread.


A large mixing bowl.
A wooden spoon.
A 12 hole muffin tin, greased with butter.
A tablespoon.

Chocolate Cookie Cups with ice cream


Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan).

In the large mixing bowl cream together the butter and sugar by smoothing them against the side of the bowl with the back of the wooden spoon then add the egg followed by the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt. Mix in the chocolate chips and bring together to form a dough.

Divide the dough evenly into 12 portions, roll into balls and place into each muffin tin cavity. Push each one down gently to flatten then place in the oven for 18 to 20 minutes until risen and golden. They will still be soft and a little sunken in the centre, this is how you want them to be.

Whilst hot and still in the muffin tray, use the back of a spoon to make the wells in the centres of the cookie cups a little deeper being careful not to break them. 

Spoon a tablespoon of Hazelnut Chocolate spread into the centre of each cookie cup and leave to soften for a few minutes. 

Gently remove the cookie cups from the muffin tin and serve warm as they are or with a scoop of ice cream on top.

  1. Decadent! Anything with chocolate hazelnut spread and served warm will be amazing. I love how the scoop of ice cream fits perfectly on top.

  2. Yum, these look so good. I'll try and make them for one of our cousin connect dinners!
