Double Chocolate Ice Cream Cookie Cups

Written by Lindsay Ropella

Happy Friday! And a very happy Memorial Day to all of you who have served or are currently serving for our country! Thank you for all you do!

Since I think most of us will be celebrating the long weekend with some family time and a cookout (if you live here in WI anyway) I wanted to share with you a delicious and super easy recipe that is perfect for any Memorial Day party!

Using just 3 inexpensive ingredients, you can have these babies made in about 30 minutes or less!

Double Chocolate Ice Cream Cookie Cups

Serves 24
Meal type Dessert

Ingredients

  • 16oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • .75 quart vanilla bean ice cream ((or just 1 small tub))
  • 30oz chocolate chip cookie dough ((I just bought pre-made dough in the value size))

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Grease two muffin tins (24 muffins total)
3. Place cookie dough in the bottom of each muffin tin so that it covers the bottom completely and is about an inch thick (about 1 tbsp)
4. Press the dough in each tin down so that it is flat.
5. Once the oven is preheated, put the cookies in for 10 to 14 minutes, or until done baking.
6. Take the cookies out and let them cool a bit.
7. Start melting the chocolate chips in a double boiler.
8. Once the chocolate is fully melted, remove the cookie cups from the muffin tins and place them on a piece of wax paper on a baking sheet.
9. Take a scoop of ice cream and place it in the middle of each cookie cup.
10. Take a spoonful of chocolate and put it right on top of the ice cream. You need to work quickly at this stage so that the ice cream doesn't start melting. You may even want to do half the cookie cups, put them in the freezer, and then do the other half.
11. Once the cookie cups are assembled, place them into the freezer to freeze for at least 2 hours (overnight is best).
12. Take the cookie cups out about 15 to 20 minutes before serving and enjoy!

Can well all just take a moment to appreciate the fact that my food photos finally don’t look like a big pile of poop on a plate? I’m working on it guys…I’m working on it…

This weekend Eric and I are going to TWO, yes TWO, cookouts! I can’t wait to spend the weekend outside hanging out with our families. The temperature is FINALLY expected to reach 80 this weekend here in Wisconsin and we couldn’t be more excited! I can’t wait to bring these and be known as “that girl who brought the delicious and refreshing treat!”

What are your plans for the long weekend?! Let me know in the comments below! I love hearing what everyone else is doing! Maybe it makes me creepy…maybe it just makes me super invested in the lives of my amazing readers – you decide.

    Hi from another “notebook” blogger! These look adorable, and easy enough that I (hopefully) shouldn’t be able to mess them up…definitely pinning them for the next event I host :)

      well hello there! :) Glad you stopped by!! haha, oh if I didn’t mess them up too badly, anyone can do it! Of course, I only took pictures of the ones that looked the prettiest. :) The chocolate got weird on a few of them to be totally honest but they still tasted great! If you give them a try let me know what you think! I’d love to hear :)
