MandM Cookie Dough Cups (egg-free!)

Some things are too delicious not to share.

These M&M Cookie Dough Cups had the potential to be perfectly done and pretty, but my impatience got the best of me and most of the cups ended up jagged and a little funny looking.  Luckily they tasted so good I forgot how funky looking they were while I was eating them!  Next time I’ll take my time to get a prettier productSmile

MandM Cookie Dough Cups (egg-free!)

M&M Cookie Dough Cups
Makes ~16 cups

16 ounces semi-sweet baking chocolate
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup M&Ms

Prepare chocolate cups: Line muffin tins with paper cup holders and set aside.  Melt chocolate in the microwave in 30-second increments, stirring in-between
Once chocolate is completely melted, paint a layer on the inside of each paper cup holder with a paintbrush or the back of a spoon; the thicker the chocolate layer, the easier it will be to peel your paper
Set chocolate cups aside to cool in fridge and prepare cookie dough
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour and salt; set aside
Beat butter and sugars with an electric mixer on medium-high speed for a few minutes or until light and fluffy; add vanilla and beat for another minute
Scrape the sides of the bowl and stir in flour on low speed until combined; stir in M&Ms
Set cookie dough aside
Carefully remove paper liners from chocolate cups; scoop cookie dough into each cup using an ice cream scoop
Store cookie dough cups in fridge until ready to serve

    I’m the same way! I’m usually so excited that I continue on to the next step and forget the waiting part. Like icing a cake. I’m just so excited to see if this time I can get a good result for once and so I don’t let it cool and it gets all melty and then it’s all ruined. It makes me want to cry.

    But these at least look interesting with their jagged edges. You made modern cookie dough and chocolate art. Few people can say that. :)

      I’d use that as an excuse to eat warm cake with icing by myself lol!

    so they’re almost like Reese’s…but with cookie dough in them. You’re killing me! SO GOOD.

    These look incredibly decadent – M&M cookie dough? What next :D
    And I love your lil choc cups – the jagged edges are cool!

    Hey, even though they don’t look the prettiest, I bet they still taste the best! :D I’d eat ’em! ;-)

    I have to admit that I am a total cookie fiend! I can’t help myself! These sound phenomenal! Thanks for sharing Lauren!

    I will be eating this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner thank you very much. :)

    • admin March 31, 2012 at 9:10 am #

      Such a good call:-)

  8. Rachel March 21, 2012 at 8:47 am #

    I made the same chocolate cups for a “fancy” dessert once for a dinner party. Patience (and enough chocolate) are key!

    But they still totally taste awesome. I put gelato in the center of mine and covered it with a mixed berry coulis. Sooo good!

    • admin March 31, 2012 at 9:10 am #

      That is a great idea, I bet yours were so pretty!

  9. thelittleloaf March 21, 2012 at 9:11 am #

    Who cares if they’re not the most beautiful thing? Bet they taste in-credible.

  10. Tara @ Chip Chip Hooray March 21, 2012 at 9:25 am #

    So cute! I love that you’ve conveniently packaged my cookie dough in a candy holder to make my decadence even more pleasant. :)

  11. Bianca @ Confessions of a Chocoholic March 21, 2012 at 9:50 am #

    I like the jagged ones! They look rustic and inviting ;)

  12. Rachel @ Baked by Rachel March 21, 2012 at 9:57 am #

    Mmmm!!!! Way cuter than eating it by the spoonful.

  13. Jessica March 21, 2012 at 10:10 am #

    I actually think these look really cool! Very abstract :)

  14. Erin March 21, 2012 at 10:20 am #

    Wow cares what they look like, I want!

  15. Florida Foodie March 21, 2012 at 10:29 am #

    These look great! When I first saw the picture, I thought you magically scooped out a peanut butter cup and filled with cookie dough!

    • admin March 31, 2012 at 9:11 am #

      Lol I would totally do that and eat the peanut butter filling:-)

  16. Angelyn March 21, 2012 at 10:33 am #

  24. Kathryn March 21, 2012 at 4:24 pm #

    I would be exactly the same! Who has time to wait for patience when there’s important cookie dough eating to be done?!

  25. Cindy @ Once Upon a Loaf March 21, 2012 at 4:55 pm #

    My daughter and I were just eating cookie dough! Can’t wait to show her these and make them, too! They look amazing.

  26. Erin @ Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts March 21, 2012 at 6:50 pm #

    I have no patience! They are “rustic”, just go with that :) They could fantastic, no matter what!

  27. Jersey Girl Cooks March 21, 2012 at 10:06 pm #

    Mmmnnn! This look good enough to eat and that is what counts.

  28. myfudo March 22, 2012 at 7:01 am #

    I wouldn’t go looking for pretty if the treats are as delicious-looking as this! Thanks for sharing!

  29. Sandra March 22, 2012 at 7:43 am #

    Beauty is overrated anyway. Taste is where it’s at!

  30. Jen @ Jen's Favorite Cookies March 22, 2012 at 11:46 am #

    I think they look fantastic! I actually prefer things to be a little asymmetrical and off-kilter. It makes them look more real, and homemade, I guess. I would never have thought of this, but this is a fabulous idea!! Can’t wait to try it!

    • admin March 31, 2012 at 9:11 am #

      Thanks, Jen!

  31. Baking Serendipity March 22, 2012 at 11:07 pm #

    Truly, I’d have rushed to the end product too…these look so good!

  32. alex March 22, 2012 at 11:34 pm #

    I love them! and the cups look just perfect to me!

  33. Let Me Eat Cake March 23, 2012 at 12:13 am #

    love these chocolate cups such a great idea!

  34. shelly (cookies and cups) March 23, 2012 at 7:38 am #

    I bet those are so yum!!

  35. Rachel @ Not Rachael Ray March 23, 2012 at 9:13 am #

    What a perfect little treat!

  36. Georgia @ The Comfort of Cooking March 23, 2012 at 11:09 am #

    Ok, these would be positively dangerous in my house. Super fun, great recipe, Lauren! Thanks for sharing. Also, I’m having a great giveaway today with four potential prize winners, so you should enter!

    It’s sometimes such a pain to be a food blogger because all you want to do is devour these amazing treats that you’re making but then you have to perfect them for the photos. And then you can’t eat any of them until the “photo shoot” is done! That being said, your cookie dough cups do look perfect, and the jagged edges gives it a more rustic look. Well done!

  38. katie March 26, 2012 at 1:09 pm #

    You had me at “cookie dough” these look and sound delectable!

  39. Simply Life April 1, 2012 at 5:46 pm #
