Chocolate Chip Cookie Shooter Cups
(Original recipe from Pop Sugar, modified slightly by Chef Alli)
Makes 12 cookie shooter cups
1 cup Crisco shortening
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 large egg yolk
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. kosher salt
1 cup MINI chocolate chips
1 cup Wilton Dark Chocolate Candy Melts, from a 12 oz. bag
Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray the molds of a metal Wilton Sweet Shooters Shot Glass Pan with nonstick spray.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the shortening with the sugars; add the egg yolk and vanilla extract, mixing until well combined.
Gradually add the flour, salt, and mini chocolate chips, mixing until completely incorporated; dough should be a bit crumbly at this point.
Divide the dough into 12 equal portions, then form the cookie shooter cups inside the molds, making the walls of each cookie shooter about 1/4-inch thick. Leave the mold inserts in the mold cups with the cookie dough and chill for 20 minutes.
Transfer the shooter cups to the center rack of the preheated oven (leaving the mold inserts inside each mold cup); bake for about 20 minutes, or until the cookies just start to brown.
Remove from the oven, and let cookie shooter cups cool; remove inserts from pan, then transfer cookie shooter cups to a cooling rack to cool even more completely.
To prepare the chocolate coating for the cookie shooter cups, place chocolate candy melts into a glass bowl. Using the high power setting on your microwave, heat chocolate melts in 30 second intervals stirring after each one, until chocolate is completely melted and smooth.
Pour the melted chocolate into the well of each cookie, slowly turning the cookie to let the chocolate well coat the bottom and sides. Let the shooter cup sit for a minute, and then pour the excess chocolate back into a separate drippings bowl. Chill cookie shots until the chocolate has set.
To utilize the cookie shooter cups, fill with your favorite Hildebrand Farms Dairy milk and enjoy!! (I am especially loving their new Mocha Milk, available at Kansas Hy-Vee stores and soon to be available at Dillons stores, as well.)
3 Helpful KitchenSmacks💋From Chef Alli That Make This Recipe a Success For You:
1. To EASILY divide cookie dough into 12 equal portions, form dough into a large disc and place onto a cutting board. Cut disc in half, then cut each half in half to create 4 equal portions. Now cut each portion into thirds. Voila! You now have the 12 perfect portions needed. (see image)
2. When tempering (melting) the chocolate melts, never use anything but a couple drops of vegetable oil if the chocolate happens to seize up. Simply add a couple drops of oil to the bowl of chocolate and pop into the microwave for a few seconds; stir to incorporate oil into the chocolate, adding a couple more drops of oil if needed to gain a smooth, pourable texture. (I recommend Wilton Dark Chocolate Candy Melts)
3. When coating each cookie shooter cup with the melted chocolate, be sure to be rather liberal with the thickness of the chocolate, especially on the bottom. Each cookie shooter cup needs to be well coated inside so that when you fill it with milk, the milk can’t drip through.
