Mint Ice Cream Cookie Cups Recipe

  • 48 oz tub of mint ice cream
  • 1.5 cups Heavy Cream
  • 12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 package of chocolate mint cookies (great way to use up Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies!)

Additional materials:

  • 24 cupcake wrappers
  • 2 cupcake pans


  • Set the ice cream out and allow it to soften
  • While you wait, insert cupcake wrappers in your muffin pans
  • Place the chocolate mint cookies in a food processor and pulse a few times until they are crushed (can also place in ziplock bag and use a rolling pin to crush)
  • Sprinkle a layer of your mixture into the bottom of each cupcake wrapper
  • Top with a layer of the softened mint chocolate ice cream – leaving about a quarter of an inch space at the top for the chocolate layer
  • Place the cupcake pans in the freezer while completing the next step
  • Using a small sauce pan on low heat, melt the chocolate chips – stirring consistently.
  • Add the heavy cream and combine. Additional heavy cream may be added to taste, if desired.
  • Remove the cupcake pans from the freezer, and pour the chocolate sauce on top of the ice cream layer. Optional – add a few chocolate chips or sprinkles to the top
  • Place the cupcake pans back in the freezer for at minimum 1 hour to allow the mint ice cream cookie cups to harden

*Ice cream cookie cups should be stored in an airtight container in the freezer
