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

M&M Cookie Dough Cups
Makes ~16 cups

Ingredients:
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

Directions:
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
