Well, I fell off the blogging wagon almost as soon as I started. I expected as much in January; I did two weeks of back-to-back travelling for work and needed a bit of time to unwind. Luckily, I’m back on it, with a fun Pinterest project from a recent craft night with my girls. Introducing… milk and cookie shots.
Ingredients (makes six)
- Cooking Spray
- Cookie Dough – 3 cups (24 oz.)
- Chocolate Hard Shell wafers – Approx. 25 wafers (45 g)
- Coconut Rum – 1/2 cup
- Vanilla Almond Milk (because I am lactose intolerant) – 1 cup
First, spray a small cupcake/muffin tin with your cooking spray (I prefer the kind with a little bit of flour in it).
Secondly, using a small ice cream scoop or a spoon, scoop your cookie dough into the cupcake tin, using your clean fingers to press the dough along the bottom and sides of each mold. Try to keep your cookie walls thin, since it will expand during baking.
Next, bake according to instructions. We used store-bought cookie dough, but could have easily substituted with home-made.
One baked, remove the cookies from the oven and immediately use a small shot glass (or spice jar, in this case) to press a bowl into the cookies. After this depression has been made, allow the cookies to cool.
Once the cookies have cooled, melt your chocolate shell in the microwave using a small bowl. Using a spoon, spread a thin layer of melted chocolate shell into the depression in the cookies, making sure to coat the bottom and the sides. Allow the shell to set.
Mix your coconut rum and your milk. Once the chocolate shell has hardened, remove your cookie shot glasses from your cupcake tin. Pour your cocktail into your glasses… and cheers!
This project was surprisingly simple and very easy to customize; it’s definitely a Pinterest Friend, instead of a fail. I really can’t wait to try again, using different flavors of cookies and different types of alcohol. One of my favorite treats to bring to parties are pudding shots (I should post that recipe as well), so being able to bring a different, yet still boozy, dessert should play pretty well with my friends.
