Super cute, indulgent, versatile and fun to make, these chocolate cookie cups are the perfect mini desserts ever. These little treats even make for a great party snack for all. And the best way to enjoy both cold coffee and cookies in one. Let’s get to ingredients and learn how to make these irresistible chocolate cookie cups with cold coffee.
INGREDIENTS USED IN CHOCOLATE COOKIE CUPS WITH COLD COFFEE
I have used salted butter for these chocolate cookie cups with cold coffee. Feel free to use unsalted if that’s what you have in hand. Make sure you add a pinch of salt in case you are using unsalted butter and don’t forget to start with softened butter.
I have used icing sugar in these chocolate cookie cups with cold coffee., but incase you are unable to get your hands on it, you can use a combination of powdered sugar and corn flour in place of icing sugar. For each cup of icing sugar, you will need equal quantity of powdered sugar and one and a half tablespoon of corn flour.
Using the best kind of vanilla has always made all the difference in any dessert. Please avoid using vanilla essence as it is not real but synthetic and chemically made vanilla flavour. Make sure you use good quality vanilla extract or bean for these chocolate cookie cups with cold coffee. I recommend this one.

ALL PURPOSE FLOUR
I have used regular maida or all-purpose flour in these chocolate cookie cups with cold coffee. If you would like, you can substitute it with whole wheat flour or use a combination of both. Add a tablespoon of milk if you try it with aata than maida.
Using a good quality cocoa powder is very important. I personally really like using Hershey’s but you can use any good dark cocoa powder. Cocoa powder is actually one of the most significant ingredients in these chocolate cookie cups with cold coffee.
I always suggest using a good quality chocolate while baking. Brands like van houten, callebaut and amul have good quality chocolate.

TIP AND TRICKS FOR MAKING CHOCOLATE COOKIE CUPS WITH COLD COFFEE
- The first and foremost tip would be to use good quality ingredients, always. It goes without saying although.
- Make sure you sift your icing sugar before creaming it with butter.
- Once the dough has come together, chill it if it’s too soft.
- Make sure you scoop out even sized balls.
- Using your fingers gently press the dough up and along the sides of the pan to make a cup shape. You can even use the back of a wooden spoon, if you like.
- Make sure the cup has equal thickness throughout.
- Chill the tray before baking until the dough has properly freezed.
- Immediately after removing the cookie cups from the oven, with the help of a tablespoon, gently reform the “cup shape” by widening the center and flattening the bottom of the cup.
- Let the cookie cup cool down before you take them out of the tray.
- Once cooled, gently push from one side using a knife. The cookie cup should come out easily.
- Evenly coat the cookie cup with melted chocolate in order to make it leak proof before filling with cold coffee.
