San Diego was incredible and so much fun! It was awesome hanging out on the beach with my family, but now it’s time to go back to work. I wanted to make something for my new coworkers as a kind of “nice to meet you” gesture, so I decided to go with these chocolate chip cookie cups. I hope they go over well…I mean who doesn’t love a good chocolate chip cookie. Then I topped off the cups with some frosting and sprinkled some coarse sugar on top for some sparkle.
We flew into Michigan on Sunday, and I decided to bake these on Monday to take into work on Tuesday. Totally forgot that I didn’t have enough frosting to cover enough cups to take with me, so now I need to make a run to the store to pick up another tub. So now I’ve got a double batch sitting and taunting me on my counter until I’m able to finish them. The cookies cups themselves are amazing…they’re just prettier when finished. Definitely need to bring these in on Wednesday or there might not be enough to bring.
These would also be perfect as a birthday cake replacement. My brother doesn’t like cake too much, but he does love a good cookie. Next year, I’m thinking of making these for him (his birthday’s in June so he’ll just have to wait). Or I might bring them with me to Christmas gatherings. I’ll just top them with red and green sprinkles to make them more festive. If you’re hosting a Halloween party (and I can’t believe how soon that’s coming up), these would be perfect with along the cider and pumpkin goodies. With their soft center and crispy outside, no one will be able to resist!
