Milk & Cookie Shots... for when kids feel a little left out of the party

by - 2:26 PM

Dominique Ansel has been making up food crazes left and right, and he did it again with these Milk & Cookie shots... but guess what?  I'm not in New York right now to enjoy them!  

One of the shows I produce for POPSUGAR is called Eat the Trend, where that's right, we totally recreate food trends in instructional videos.  And guess who gets to recipe test?  Jealous of my job yet? Well a kitchen full of flour, chocolate chips and cookie dough later I cracked the code and figured out a dough that would stand up to the job.  

Milk and Cookie Shots Inspired by Dominique Ansel 
Recipe by Nicole Iizuka, POPSUGAR Food

Yield: 1 dozen shots

{Cookie Ingredients}
1 cup shortening
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg yolk
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup mini chocolate chips
12 aluminum or silicone molds

{Cookie Shot Ingredients}
1 cup chocolate, melted
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350°F. Cream together the shortening and sugars. Add in egg yolk and vanilla extract, and keep mixing. Then gradually add in sifted flour and salt until completely incorporated. 

Add in mini chocolate chips, and mix together until evenly distributed. The dough should be a little crumbly at this point. 

Grease the molds, and then form the cookies inside the molds, about a 1/4 inch thick all the way around. Chill for 20-30 minutes before baking. 

Bake cookies in the molds for about 20 minutes or until the cookies just start to brown. Remove from the oven, and let cool. 

Melt chocolate, and then pour the melted chocolate into the well of each cookie. Let it sit for a minute, and then pour the excess chocolate back into the pan. Chill cookie shots until the chocolate has set. 

Mix together milk and vanilla extract, and serve inside each cookie shot.
