Nutella Cookie Cups

I did it!

The other day I was craving something sweet, but didn't want to put a lot of effort into it. I remembered a post I saw on Pinterest about Nutella Cookie Cups and thought that sounded perfect. Well, after I looked it up and realized that the pinner wanted me to bake the cookie cups from scratch, I decided to scratch that idea and do my own lazy-man's version. I gathered up my materials and got to work:


Yes, that's right. 1 pan, 1 package of Nutella, and 1 package of cookie dough. That's all it took. (Plus some cooking spray to grease the pan, but that wasn't glamorous enough to make the shot.) And the results were delish!

Here's what I did: put 1 round of cookie dough in each well of my mini muffin tin. Baked the suckers according to the directions on the package. When I pulled them out of the oven, I thought I might have to create the wells for the Nutella (the original recipe mentioned using a shot glass or spoon to make the wells), but I found that my cookies naturally sank and formed little cups.

After letting them cool for a few minutes I spooned Nutella into each cup and voila! Little bites of tasty goodness.

Finished Nutella Cups

These were so simple and so tasty. I used sugar cookie dough, but they would be amazing with peanut butter cookie dough or chocolate chip cookie dough. I highly recommend trying this one yourself - for minimal effort, you get maximum yumminess. These would be great to make for a cookie exchange or to share with neighbors for the holidays. And if you are less lazy than I am, I'm certain that if you made the cookie dough from scratch they would be even better.

I did it! I satisfied my sweet tooth without having to make an effort. Try it for yourself and let me know how it goes for you!
