Chocolate Chip Cookie Peanut Butter Cheesecake Cups
Serves: 15
  • Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
  • PB Cheesecake Filling
  • 4 oz. cream cheese at room temperature
  • ⅓ c. peanut butter
  • ½ c. brown sugar
  • 2 c. cream, whipped (will be divided later)
  • Chocolate Whipped Ganache
  • ⅔ c. cream
  • ⅓ c. chips
  • 3 T. cocoa
  • 1 c. leftover whipped cream to fold in
  1. Make one batch of batter for chocolate chip cookies and use a cookie scoop to scoop balls of dough into 15 greased muffin tins. Freeze extra dough balls or save for later. Using a wet finger or the bottom of a cup, press dough up the sides of the muffin tin to form a cookie cup. Bake recipe as directed and cool in tins. Place on cooling rack or serving plate.
  2. Peanut Butter Cheesecake Filling: Combine all ingredients except for cream. Make sure you've whipped your cream to stiff peaks and then gently fold in HALF of the whipped cream three times until combined. Refrigerate the other half. Portion into cookie cups.
  3. Chocolate Whipped Ganache Place chips and cocoa in a medium bowl. Heat cream until very hot. Pour over chips and cocoa. Allow to sit 2 minutes and then stir together. Refridgerate until cooled but not quite solid. Whip until it thickens up and then gently stir in leftover whipped cream. Pipe on top of cookie cups and refrigerate until serving.

      Honestly, Carrie, I don’t think I’d be able to cook half the things I do if I didn’t have a baby carrier. It comes in handy! My toddler begs me to put her in a sling on my hip to bake cookies and breads all the time. It’s fun and a great way to keep little hands out of mischief too. Thanks so much for stopping by!

      Awesome! Your photos are pretty spectacular already, Zainab, so I’m looking forward to seeing what you come out with next. Thank you so much for visiting this weekend. Have a beautiful week.

    Your food photos are gorgeous, but I also love seeing that pretty photo of you with your baby! That is so sweet, Jelli! I have been an avid babywearer with both my boys and STILL wear my nearly 3-year-old fairly often. Just today I told him I’d put him in a carrier on my back to walk to the grocery store, and he said, “No, I want to be in the front so I can see your face.” There is nothing better than being so close to your little one :)

      Thanks, Andi. My husband and I are major advocates of babywearing. We use the Ergo with our 2 year-old and most of the time a sling with the baby. I honestly don’t know how I’d keep up with my kids or leave the house without a baby carrier. How sweet that your son obviously loves cuddling close to you in the carrier. Love the bonding it creates! Thank you so much for stopping by this weekend.

      Thank you so much, Kelly. They were incredibly tasty, but so rich I could only manage one in a sitting… and that’s saying something! :) Thank you for sharing.

      Thank you, Min! Glad to hear liquid liner is doable, though I’ve got a lot of learning to catch up on. Thank you for stopping by to love on my cookie cups.

    • Jelli says

      Aw, thanks, Renee. I hope you find some time this week to whip up a batch and try them for yourself. As far as I’m concerned, there’s never enough chocolate and peanut butter in my kitchen. Have a sweet and fabulous week.

    • Jelli says

      Thanks for the compliements! Ginnie, I’d love to hear your top tips when you get the cat-eye mastered. Goodness, it’ll take me forever!

    • Jelli says

      You’re welcome, Rebecca. The book walks you through exactly how to set up your shoot to create great food pics. I can’t tell you how much my photography has improved just by reading this alone!

    • Jelli says

      Aww, thanks, Kelley! Mini desserts are cute, aren’t they? I must admit, most of the time I opt for baking full-sizers because minis are twice the work, but sometimes the occasion just calls for a little extra elegance. Thank you for sharing and lovin’ on my cheesecake cups.

      What’s not to love about pb and chocolate, right, Kayla! You’re spot-on about the texture of these cookie cups too. The silky pb cream cheese with the crunchy cookie cup is pretty amazing. Thank you so much for stopping by today.
