Flower Pot Cookies
Chocolate Chip Cookie cups filled with hazelnut chocolate spread and topped with crushed chocolate cookies. This dessert is so easy to make and looks stunning served on a table.
It’s March, the flowers are blooming, the snow is melting and the weather is warming up nicely. Well, everywhere else but here in Miami where Summer visits us all year long. One might think it’s a good thing, but living in a place where you get to witness the Four Seasons must be amazing.
I really love to use the time of year to get inspired in the kitchen. This month is all about these flower pot cookies. My daughters loved eating their favorite chocolate chip cookies in a “cup” form.
You can fill them up with anything your heart desires: pudding, chocolate chips, whipped cream, marshmallow fluff, etc. I added some crushed chocolate sandwich cookies on top to make it look like the “dirt” from a flower pot.
These Flower Pot Cookies are the perfect springtime dessert to bake with your kids. They can help shape, decorate and make their own flower pot.
For the flowers, I just bought some paper ones in the scrapbook section of my craft store and glued them on regular toothpicks. You can use piped flowers, real flowers or omit them if desired. I LOVE Daisies and thought they looked really cool.
Making them is so easy! Check out the step by step process: I grab my Toll House chocolate chip cookie dough and bake them. After they come out of the oven I make an indentation in the middle using the back of a wooden spoon.
Then they are filled with chocolate hazelnut spread, sprinkled with crushed chocolate chip cookies and topped with a cute paper flower.
