These chocolate cookie cups taste just like brownies, but shaped for your favorite fillings! Here, I piped cream cheese frosting in my cups and topped with maraschino cherries or mini chocolate chips.
However, we have a LOT of amazing cookie cups recipes with plenty of filling ideas.

tools you'll need for chocolate cookie cups with frosting
These cookie cups are surprisingly easy to whip up! An impressive treat for parties, or make them just for your own sweet tooth.
To prepare the chocolate cookie cups (brownie cookie cups?) you'll need either a small saucepan or a microwave-safe bowl to melt chocolate and butter.
You may use a large bowl, whisk, and spatula to make the chocolate cookie cups. No need for an electric mixer (unless desired).
I highly recommend baking your cookie cups in SILICONE MINI MUFFIN pans. I own two of the linked pans. The cookie cups come out of the pan flawlessly. Metal pans, no matter how well-greased, are much riskier.
To ensure perfect cookie cups without breakage, I even grease the silicone pans with non-stick cooking spray.
Scooping the cookie dough into the cups is so much easier with a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop. (And don't worry about shaping the cookie cups before baking. They will rise anyway. Just make the indentations right after they come out of the oven using a teaspoon.)
I recommend using an electric hand mixer or standing mixer to make the cream cheese frosting.
