These Hot Chocolate Cookie Cups are sure to please the crowd. Perfect for any festive season, particularly Christmas, as well as any occasion.

They’re easy to come together, with an oozy contained chocolate ganache, its delicious chocolatey goodness waiting to melt in your mouth!

In order to vamp up the looks of these cookie cups, I added mini marshmallows and waffle sticks, and these hot chocolate cookie cups look absolutely adorable.

I would not hesitate to eat them any day even though I can actually be particularly cautious about my calorie intake!

Hot Chocolate Cookie Cups ( And Mint Variation ) Recipe by Bakeomaniac

P.S: For those whom I apologized that the video was down, I am proud to announce its up again! Thanks for all of your support!!

Before you proceed, TAKE NOTE. These are more of “hot” than literally hot, chocolate cookie cups. They are actually cooled and cold chocolate ganache, although there shall be no objections if you want to use the hot chocolate ganache. It’s your kitchen, you’re the boss!

However, I would prefer mine cooled because the chocolate ganache will be slightly thicker and there’s no risk of melting the marshmallows. I actually can’t imagine how it would probably look like if the marshmallows melt, maybe something similar to a snowman? 😂

Personally for me, I did a mint variation by adding mint essence. Through this, there’s a refreshing taste against the backdrop of the chocolate. This mint chocolate ganache is extremely delicious too, and you should try it if you like the combination of mint and dark chocolate just like me!

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees C or 350F.
  2. Cream together the butter and two sugars until light and fluffy.
  3.  Add in the egg and whisk until well incorporated, where there are no longer any dark yellow streaks of egg yolk.
  4. Whisk in the baking soda, salt and vanilla extract until well incorporated with no lumps.
  5. Add in the crumbs of digestive biscuits and all purpose flour and stir until all dry ingredients have been successfully incorporated.
  6. Using a regular muffin tin, drop 2 tablespoons of cookie batter into each cup.
  7. Shape against the edges using wet fingers.
  8. Bake for 16-19 minutes or until golden brown at the top.
  9. Remove it from the oven and immediately use a small rounded object such as a pestle or a small spoon to create a hole for the cookie cup to look like a cup!
  10. Cool the mixture and meanwhile, make the chocolate ganache.
  11. For the Chocolate Ganache, heat up the heavy whipping cream at medium low until it has bubbles appearing at the side.
  12. Pour it to your chocolate chips, contained in a bowl, and wait for 5 minutes. Ensure all chocolate chips are covered.
  13. Stir for the ganache to come together. If desired, add in flavourings such as mint essence or extract.
  14. Once the ganache has cooled, start the assembly process.
  15. Remove each cup from the tin, and add in the chocolate ganache to the base.
