These Christmas Mini Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups are a fun way to get into the holiday spirit and super simple to make!
I am obsessed with not only baking chocolate chip cookies but also Christmas cookies. So what better way to get into the holiday spirit than to combine the two?!? These would be perfect for cookie exchanges or holiday parties. I’m all about making holiday cookies, even if I don’t have a specific purpose for them besides just enjoying them as a family.
My friends and I have had cookie exchanges for the past few years, which I love making cookies for, but I’m not sure if it’s happening this year with everyone’s crazy schedules. Regardless, these cookies are a fun way to get the kids in the kitchen to help since who doesn’t love to bake cookies and top them with a bunch of sprinkles?!? Can’t you see how much fun it is when the kids get in the kitchen to help? No but seriously, most of the time I enjoy having the kids help out in the kitchen since the older they get the more helpful they actually can be.
These start with your basic chocolate chip cookie dough which is then pressed into equal size mini muffin cups. I made an indent in the middle of each dough cup so there would be space for the chocolate bell.
Right out of the oven I added chocolate shaped bell candies to each cookie cup and topped them with sprinkles. Quite simple!
This time of year is always challenging with the amount of sweets available at holiday parties, cookie exchanges or work festivities. What I like to focus on is moderation. Yes that’s usually easier said than done but if you know you’re going to be making cookies (and sampling a few) one day, focus on eating just a couple then package up the rest and put them out of sight.
