Coffee Ice Cream Cookie Cups Recipe

"I’m 11 years old, have six brothers and sisters, and we’re always looking for new ice cream recipes. I invented this for my sister’s birthday party, and everyone had compliments and wanted more," writes Marcus Dooley from Red Oak, Texas. "I’ve also tried it with peanut butter cookie dough and different flavored ice creams, but I like coffee the best."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 15 min. + freezing YIELD:12 servings


  • 1 tube (16-1/2 ounces) refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough
  • 2 cups coffee ice cream
  • Whipped cream and chocolate syrup
  • 1/3 cup English toffee bits or almond brickle chips


  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. Let dough stand at room temperature 5-10 minutes to soften. Cut into 12 slices; press onto bottoms and up the sides of greased muffin cups.
  • 2. Bake 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly on a wire rack. Spoon ice cream into each cup. Cover and freeze 1-2 hours or until firm.
  • 3. Remove cups from pan. Garnish with whipped cream and chocolate syrup. Sprinkle with toffee bits. Yield: 12 servings.

"These were yummy but cookie got a

little hard...going to bake them a little less next time so it can be eaten a little easier."

"I was careful to watch that the cookie cups did not overbrown, but they turned out rather hard -- too hard to be eaten with the ice cream as a cookie. We did love the flavor of the coffee ice cream and chocolate syrup though."

"I can't believe all the uproar over someone possibly "stealing" a recipe; moreover an eleven year old. Food brings families together and great times...recipe's are made for sharing. Get over it! It's a great recipe regardless of where it came from and it has made people happy. Congrats on winning!"

"Loved the idea, instead of cookie dough, I had a recipe to make cookies out of a brownie mix which I altered a bit so I was able to roll the dough out and put in the muffin cups. I then used just plain vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce on and I also used frozen strawbery yogurt. My kids loved them. I'm even thinking of trying them in my mini muffin pan and have a variety of ice creams in. I'll still try it with the chocolate chip cookie dough too!"

"Kind of sad when someone rips into an 11 year old kid to justify thievery.

I don't know if anyone stole anyone else's recipe, but it's sick to think someone ought to be happy and thankful to be victimized. To the person who made that post, let me ask you this: If someone walked into your home and stole all your furniture, would YOU think it was a great thing and a "compliment"?
Lots of cooking blogs are having their content stolen too. Shame.
Anyway, this is a great recipe and one we'll go back to often."

"People say the winner of the pillsbury contest, Sue, stole your recipe and won $1 million dollars, but no. Maybe it was the same idea, but she wasn't looking online for a recipe, she was going to the store, trying all she could to find a recipe! I am sorry if you think she stole your recipe. But, I am going to try out BOTH recipies and tell you if they taste the same, diffrences and more. But, you should be proud you made a winning recipe, and the winner used the same recipe! Great job! I rated this 1 star because I have not tried them yet, and people say she stole "your" recipe. Just wanted you to know."
