If you don’t want to make your own cookies, you don’t HAVE TO! That’s the beauty of this one. You can actually use store-bought cookies and be lazy like me. YAHOO! Most of the time, I really don’t have time to whip up a fresh batch of cookies on the fly. So, I usually just rip open a container of whatever kind of cookie I have on hand. And you know what? God hasn’t struck me down yet. I am still here to serve you all and to be a mom to my kids. You will be forgiven if you are having a crazy week. Only you and me will know. I promise. 🙂 

But no matter what you do, you still have to melt the chocolate. There is no getting around that part.

What do you think about this recipe? Want to give it a try? Do you think your kids will love cookie cups? I have a feeling they will! By the way, this recipe is also known as cookie shot glasses or cookie shot if you want to serve them to adults and are on a hunt for a more grown-up name. 🙂 But I think I would still serve my cookie shot glasses with milk inside!
