Hot Chocolate Cookie Cups

Raven Higheagle


These Hot Chocolate Cookie Cups are perfect for cold winter days.

I first imagined making these cookies at the beginning of December. I was doing a little brainstorming about recipes to make in January and February. What came to mind was cold weather and hot chocolate. I wanted to try making a hot chocolate cake, hot chocolate cheesecake and hot chocolate cookie cups so I made a list on my iPhone.
