Chocolate Pumpkin Pie Cookie Cups #ChristmasSweetsWeek

Pumpkin and chocolate are a match made in dessert heaven. You won’t miss the pie when these bite-sized, easy Chocolate Pumpkin Cookie Cups are on the menu.

All opinions are mine alone.



Cookie cups are a favorite of mine, because of all the flavor and filling combinations. It's day 5 of #ChristmasSweetsWeek and I am a firm believer that pumpkin is not just a September-November food. Yes, fresh pumpkin is only available at certain times of the year, but I used canned pumpkin for the pumpkin pudding and it is so amazing!!

I have made quite a few cookie cups this year, like these Funfetti Cheesecake Cookie Cups and Chocolate Irish Cream Cheesecake Cookie Cups. Like I said, so many options for flavors. I have so many ideas for more cookie cup creations next year.


The chocolate cookie cups are so easy to make, and I used a pestle to press the centers down after baking. You can also use the back of a wooden spoon or muddler if you have one. The key to getting the cookie cups so uniform is using a small cookie scoop. Cookie scoops/ice cream scoops are a lifesaver when I make cookies and cupcakes. I know that everything will be the same size and bake at the same time.
