Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups recipe with Almond Buttercream Icing topped with mini M&M’s for a fun splash of color make for the perfect dessert for any occasion! These are the size of cupcakes and are always a big hit. Great for any holiday or birthday!
Welcome once again to the wonderful world of giant cookie cups! I have had a blast coming up with all different versions to make of these and hope you have had fun reading about them and drooling over the photos. In case you missed it, I decided that I am going to make this a “thing” here on Wishes and Dishes by consistently providing you with new ideas for jumbo cookie cups. So far, I have shared a Carrot Cake version, Sugar Cookie with Lemon Mousse, Peanut Butter and Jelly, and Pina Colada. Which do you think was the best one?
Today I’m sharing chocolate chip cookie cups filled with an almond buttercream icing (or frosting) and topped with mini M&M’s. This was actually one of my original ideas that I had but hadn’t gotten around to making them until this past weekend. I wasn’t quite sure what kind of frosting to pair with the chocolate chip cookie but it was well worth the wait – this almond buttercream was perfect! I also knew that I wanted to incorporate mini M&M’s into these somehow, but wasn’t sure if I wanted them in the actual cookie dough or the frosting. I’m happy with my choice as they are SUPER cute on top for some added color, don’t you agree?! They are like mini cookie cakes and would be great for a birthday party.
Note: You can get a jumbo muffin tin on Amazon if you don’t already have one. They are also great for making bakery style muffins, etc.! I also use these reusable Wilton cupcake decorating bag and decorating tips for piping on the frosting.
