Caramel Cheesecake Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Cookie cups are so much fun!  They are SO simple and fast to make, and you can stuff them with really fun flavor creations – like my Caramel Macchiato Cookie Cups, Apricot Cheesecake Cookie Cups, Butterscotch Apple Cookie Cups, and Peanut Butter Fudge Puddles.  This time, I went with a caramel cheesecake – smooth and sweet, and put it in a chocolate chip cookie cup. Yep – it’s a Caramel Cheesecake Chocolate Chip Cookie Cup – it’s a mouthful to say… but a DELICIOUS mouthful!  Top it with a chocolate ganache, and you’re SET!

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • TWO packages of refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough (24 count each – that come in squares)
  • 8 oz cream cheese (room temperature)
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup caramel sauce (or ice cream topping) + more according to your desired taste
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

MAKE THEM:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Lightly spray the cups in your mini muffin/cupcake pan.  This is my favorite, and it’s silicone, so they pop out very easily!

Take each pre-cut square and put in cups – 1 per cup. Squish it down SLIGHTLY just so it’s not hanging over any edges.

Bake for about 12-16 minutes.

When you take them out of the oven, push down the centers with the end of a wooden or silicone spoon to create a cup.

Allow to cool completely.

Make the filling:

Combine the cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth.

Add caramel and continue to add until it has the flavor you desire.

Spoon the caramel cheesecake into the cooled cookie cups until they are just below the curve in the top.

Put the whipping cream in a small bowl in the microwave, until it just starts to boil.

Add the chocolate chips and let sit for 3 minutes.

Stir until mixed and a smooth chocolate ganache is created.

Spoon some ganache over each cookie up, just to the top.

Keep refrigerated, and ENJOY!

** If you have leftover caramel cheesecake, this is a yummy dip for graham crackers or apple slices!
