Directions:

Step 1 – Spray  your mini muffin tin with nonstick spray and preheat the over to 350 degress.

Step 2 – Mix the cookie ingredients in your stand mixer (or by hand in a mixing bowl), until you have your cookie dough.

Step 3 – Take about 1 Tablespoon of cookie dough and roll it into a ball in you hand. Place the cookie ball in the mini muffin tin and press lightly into the muffin cup. Fill all the muffin cups and bake for about 9-10 minutes.

Step 4 – As the cookie cups are baking, you can get the whipped cream ready.

It is really so easy to make whipped cream, that it doesn’t make sense to buy it pre-made. The only thing is that it does take a few minutes of hard work, or a fast mixer.

To make the whipped cream, place the cream, sugar and vanilla in the mixing bowl. Set it about as fast as it will go and let it mix for 5-10 minutes. You can use confectioner’s sugar (powdered sugar) or regular white sugar.

Step 5 – Once the cookie cups are done and cooled completely, top with a heaping tablespoon of whipped cream. Be sure to prepare these cookies right before you will be serving them. You can make the cookie cups and whipped cream in advance, but don’t place the whipped cream onto the cookie cups until you are ready to serve.

Step 6 – To make the dark chocolate curls, use a potato peeler and sprinkle on top of the whipped cream.
