These Nutella Mousse Cookie Cups are the perfect way to indulge! They taste insanely delicious and are great for parties and special occasions. I promise, you just found your favorite way to eat Nutella.
I’m posting this recipe for you today because (1) Nutella is one of my favorite things and (2) combining Nutella and cookies makes two delicious treats even more delicious. This recipe is even more indulgent than my favorite Nutella Cookies.
I have to say I’m a little bit sorry for sharing this recipe with you because it will make you addicted!
I love these cute Nutella Cookie Cups so much. Even after having one for breakfast and one for lunch today I’m still craving more. But I need to constrain myself (at least a little bit).
I originally shared the recipe for these Nutella Cookie Cups over on Tastes of Lizzy T!
These Nutella cookie cups are made completely from scratch yet they are super simple to make! Baking cookies in a muffin tin is the easiest and most foolproof way to make tasty cookies in my opinion. You don’t need to chill the dough or be afraid that it will spread too much in the oven.
My cute cookie cups taste so delicious and are the perfect way to indulge! The chewy cookie on the outside and the smooth Nutella mousse on the inside. This will be your favorite way to eat Nutella! But make sure to have some friends around to share with or you’ll end up eating them all by yourself.
How to make Nutella Cookie Cups
To make these Nutella Mousse Cookie Cups you need a non-stick muffin tin and a small jar or kitchen utensil to make the dent into the baked cookie. The most important thing when you make the cookie cups is to not overbake the cookie or you won’t be able to make a dent into the dough.
The cookie dough doesn’t need to be chilled before baking. Use about 2-3 tbsp dough per muffin cup, it might seem too little but when you make the dent the dough comes up the sides quite a bit, so don’t worry. Bake the cookie cups for 10-12 minutes. Mine were done after 10 minutes but every oven is different so keep an eye on them.
As soon as you take the cookie cups out of the oven, use the rounded tip of a kitchen utensil or a small jar to make a well in the center of the cookie. Let the cookie cups cool down completely and then fill them with the homemade Nutella Mousse.
