How to make chocolate chip cookie cups
Chocolate chip cookie cups are so fun to make. They're filled with chocolate pudding which makes them even more indulgent. To make these cookie cups, I used refrigerated cookie dough which makes the process so easy. Simply slice the cookie dough and place them in the prepares muffin pan. You just need to pay attention to ONE thing when you are making the cups:
The cookie cups will rise in the oven. After 15 minutes, grab a shot glass and gently (very gently) press the center of the cookie down so the well is formed again. Then cook for 3 more minutes. It's very important that you press down very gently otherwise the walls will separate from the bottom. So, be gentle.
The pudding comes together in no time. All you need to do is to mix Nesquick and cornstarch, then add milk and cook it over medium heat until it thickens. In order to make sure you don't end up with a firm layer on top, cover the pudding with plastic wrap.
Let the cups and pudding cool and then fill the cups with chocolate pudding and top them with some crushed Butterfinger candy. It's important that both the pudding and the cups are cool before you fill the cookie cups with chocolate pudding.
Can you bake cookie cups in mini muffin pan?
I made these chocolate chip cookie cups in a regular sized muffin tin but you can use mini muffin tins, too. Mini chocolate chip cookie cups are so fun and cute!
What can I fill the chocolate chip cookie cups with?
You can fill these cookie cups with different fillings:
- Chocolate pudding
- Vanilla pudding

Notes and tips for chocolate chip cookie cups recipe
- Fill the cups when you want to serve them and store the empty cups in a airtight container.
- Make sure to coat the muffin tin with cooking spray before baking the cookie cups to avoid them sticking to the pan.
- Store the leftover empty chocolate chip cookie cups in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days.
Everyone loves a little bit of cookie treat, and these do the job perfectly!
Chocolate Pudding Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups
- ¾ cup Nesquick
- 2 tablespoons corn starch
- 1 ½ cup milk
- Refrigerated Cookie Dough
- 3 Butterfinger candy crushed
- Whisk Nesquick powder and corn starch in a sauce pan, gradually add the milk and place the sauce pan on medium heat.
- Cook and stir occasionally until thickens, about 8-10 minutes. Turn the heat off, cover the pudding with a plastic wrap and set aside to cool.
- Preheat the oven to 350 F. For each cup in the muffin tin use 1 ½ tablespoon cookie dough and gently use your fingers to flatten the dough in the cup and make a well. Repeat with the remaining dough.
- Bake in the oven for 12 minutes until the edges are light brown.
- The cookies will inflate. Take the muffin tin our of the oven, using a shot glass, very gently press down the cookie to deflate it and form a well again. Be very gentle and don't press hard.
- Bake in the oven for an additional 2 - 3 minutes.
- Take the muffin tin out of the oven and let it cool for 5 minutes, then take out the cookie cups carefully and let them cool completely on a rack.
- To serve, fill the cups with chocolate pudding and top with crushed Butterfinger.
These are so cute and I love that they are easy enough for my kids to make!
A new family favorite sure! My kids will never want plain cookies again. Ha!
The way I've always made the cookie cups is to invert a muffin tin, cut a 1" slice of cookie dough, and set it on top. The dough melts down around the muffin tin to form a perfect cup for puddings, fruits, ice cream, etc.
What a genius idea! I will definitely try that next time I'm making cookie cups! 🙂

I used to drink nesquik all the time as a kid. I would stir it in my milk and then spoon out the bubbles with the powder at the top. What a great idea to make it into pudding! Can't wait to make these with the kids
The pudding is so tasty, I can even have it on its own!
