Cocoa cuties are a yummy little treat after spending the day in the snow.
Ingredients are (for 24 cups)
- sugar cookie mix
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- 2 tablespoons hot cocoa mix
- 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
- 1/3 cup white chocolate chips
- chocolate mini pretzels (plain work well also)
- 1/2 cup mini marshmallows
First, preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll sugar cookie dough into small balls (about 1 tbsp) large, and place in greased mini muffin pan. Bake for 14 minutes, the dough will naturally sink in making a cup as seen in the below photo. You can also use a small spoon to press in the center of the cup if needed. Do not remove from pan until fully cooled.
Boil the whipping cream and add the cocoa mix; mix well and pour over chocolate chips. Let sit for 2-3 minutes, then stir until the ganache is smooth.
Cut the pretzels to make handles, and attach to cups with melted white chocolate. I propped the cookie cups on the side to allow for the handle to set.
After the handles have hardened, use a small spoon to add the ganache. Top with mini marshmallows. This is a fun little treat and makes a great winter gift! The cocoa cuties are stored best in the refrigerator if you have leftovers.
