Drink your milk and cookies straight from a Chocolate Chip Cookie Shot glass! This fun dessert makes for a great party food. So much fun! 

Milk is poured into a cookie shaped into a shot glass that is lined with milk chocolate. Chocolate chips scattered in foreground

How fun is this? When I saw the idea to make chocolate chip cookie shot glasses from Dominique Ansel, I knew I’d be trying it. I first made these in 2014 as part of my little sister’s wedding festivities. Dominique Ansel had just introduced his cookie shot glasses at his bakery in New York City that March. It was a fun and trendy way to celebrate!

These cookie cups are ultra rich, and so fun to eat. You can have your milk and cookies and eat it too! All at once! I’ve been to Dominique Ansel’s bakery in NYC, and these are a fantastic at-home version. And let me tell you, they take about as long to make as you would stand in line at the bakery anyway!

You’ll need a popover pan to make this recipe work. I actually bought one just so I could make these. Now, admittedly, these are larger than shot glasses, but the actual cup part where the milk goes is true to a shot size so the name sticks. People have also successfully made them in muffin tins, but they are much shorter and fatter. Nowadays you can also buy shot glass molds if you really want to get into it.

You have to give these a try. Your kids, guests, or whoever will love them. I can’t imagine someone not having fun with these treats! Fill these with milk or the beverage of your choice. You can get as creative as you want!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do I have to use shortening? Can I use butter or margarine instead?

A: Shortening is required in order to create a sturdy enough cookie to hold the shape. It works far better than butter.

Q: What kind of pan do I need?

A: You’ll need a popover pan to make this recipe work.  People have also successfully made them in muffin tins, but they are much shorter and fatter. Nowadays you can also buy shot glass molds if you really want to get into it.

Q: My cookies came out puffy. What do I do?

A: The cookies will puff up while baking. While still warm and fresh out of the oven, simply use a spoon or butter enough to squish the dough back into the sides and bottom for the best shot glass shape.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Ingredients
  • 1 cup all vegetable shortening
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 cups semi-sweet mini chocolate chips divided
Instructions
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a nonstick popover pan.
  • In a large mixing bowl, use a hand mixer to beat together shortening, brown sugar, and sugar until mixture is fluffy.
  • Add in the egg, vanilla extract, and salt and mix until smooth.
  • Use a large spoon to stir in flour. Mixture will be really crumbly, but should hold together when pressed. Stir in 1 cup mini chocolate chips until combined.
  • Scoop mixture into popover pan and press to the bottom and sides, making sure to leave a hole in the middle for the milk to go later. You only need the sides and bottom to be about 1/4 inch thick. It's hard to get it much thinner.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes until cookies get a golden brown kiss.
  • Carefully remove the cookies from the popover pan. This can be done by placing a large cutting board or pan over the popover sheet and flipping it over. Gently tap the bottoms of the popover cups to loosen. Let cool completely.
  • Carefully melt the remaining 1 cup of chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl by microwaving for 15 seconds at a time, removing and stirring, until chocolate is melted.
  • Coat the holes in the cookie cups with the chocolate. Drizzle some in and swirl, or if your chocolate is on the thicker side just give it a good smearing.
  • Refrigerate until chocolate is set. Serve by filling the "cups" with milk and enjoy!

Do these need a regular popover pan or a mini popover pan?

Anyone tried this with gluten free flour?

This is an awesome idea, the site asks what I would fill these with. Well since I have no underage children would make black or white russians and fill the cups with that! Yummy thought!

can we use the pre made cookie dough for these?

January 13, 2016 4:05 am

Genius!! I love this idea, Rachel. Even better, I have a popover pan that's been sitting unused for a while. Can't wait to try these.

September 21, 2015 6:01 pm

Ok thank you !

Would it be possible to use a muffin tin and just have a bigger shot ?

Several readers have successfully made this recipe in a muffin tin, however it creates a shorter, smaller shot. It is short and fat, more like a bowl.

SO fun!! can't wait to try them

These are simply ingenious Rachel! I can't wait to try them. Good tip about the popover pan.

I will definitely try to make this, especially that winter is coming! Thank you Rachel

Very cute Idea however I followed the directions to a T but the cookies just sank down into the popover pan; we ended up with a strangely shaped chocolate chip cookie, definitely not a cup.

Interesting. The recipe was tested numerous times at various elevations so it can't be elevation. You can hold the cups shape by placing a ball of aluminum foil in the middle.to help shape it. If the hole falls in on itself you can use the handle of a spoon to reshape it while the cookies are still hot out of the oven.
