Irish Cream Cookie Cups, an Immaculate way to bring in the Holidays! This is a super fun recipe to make and is perfect for entertaining, especially if you’re low on time.
It’s like a dessert and a cocktail in one! But you could also make this kid friendly and just use milk instead of Irish Cream. 🙂
The holidays are fast approaching and I feel like I’m running out of time for everything. Whether it’s baking or shopping or decorating, I just feel like everything in my life needed to be done yesterday.
Does anyone else feel like that this time of year?

We have a tradition in our house every year for Christmas. On Christmas Eve we put out cookies for Santa (me) and a glass of Irish Cream, because that’s what Santa likes! 🙂
Then in the morning we would awake to half eaten cookies and an empty glass sitting under the Christmas tree. I remember the look on Gavin’s face when he was little. He had the astonished ‘Wow look’, totally amazed that Santa came and left him presents and actually ate the cookies and drank the Irish Cream.
Now that Gavin is in his teenage years and knows Santa is me, we still make cookies together and then eat them on Christmas Eve. He has his with milk and I have mine with a little Irish Cream of course! Then we snuggle up on the couch and watch Christmas movies all night. Ahhh, it’s the little things in life. 🙂

I decided to put a unique spin on our family tradition by combining my love for cookies and for Irish Cream.
I thought hey, why not make cookie cups that can hold Irish Cream?! It’s such a perfect combo!
I used a regular size 12 cup muffin tin for this recipe.
I took each piece of cookie dough and flattened it slightly to fit on the bottom of the muffin tin and slightly up the sides.
Then baked them for 15 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Then I took a shot glass and dipped the bottom in Coconut Oil and pressed it gently into each cookie to make a cup shape.
Make sure you dip the shot glass each time into Coconut Oil so it doesn’t stick to the cookies.
Let the cookie cups cool for about 10 minutes in the muffin tin.
Once cooled, remove with a small spoon and place on a wired baking rack. The longer you let them cool, the easier it will be to add the chocolate coating on the inside.
I melted some mini chocolate chips and spread the chocolate into the bottom and sides of each cookie cup.
Refrigerate these for at least 30 minutes to let the chocolate lining harden.
When ready to serve, pour in the Irish Cream, Yum Yum Yum!
