Cookie Cup Sundaes

My contribution to the Virtual Summer BBQ are these Cookie Cup Sundaes! These homemade cookie cups are so easy to make! The cookies are made with coconut oil rather than butter. I found that coconut oil holds the cup shape better than butter and also does not get as hard when it cools making them easier to bite into.

Cookie Cup Sundaes

To form the cookie cups you will need to bake the cookies in a well greased muffin pan, once the cookies are baked immediately press a small circular object into the center of each cookie, pressing about 3/4 of the way in to the cookie. I recommend using a small, round 1-ounce spice jar to form the cup – they are the perfect size! Once you have pressed the cookies into cups you will need to allow the cookies to cool completely before removing them from the pan.

I suggest making the cookie cups the day before your party so they have time to cool completely and it’s one less thing you have to worry about the day of.

Right before you are ready to serve the sundaes you will want to construct them. I went classic with these sundaes with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, sprinkles, chocolates sauce and a cherry, but the possibilities are endless when it comes to ice cream sundaes. You can choose your favorite ice cream flavor(s) and toppings – go crazy!

Or, rather than you constructing the sundaes yourself, set up a Cooke Cup Sundae Bar and allow guests to make their own!

These cookie cup sundaes are perfect for an outdoor party. They are a cool, delicious treat and your guests will think they are so much fun! I also love that they are a finger food- no need for spoons, just a good supply of napkins 🙂
