  • 1
    Spray a mini muffin pan with nonstick spray and set aside. Prepare the chocolate chunk cookie batter with the vegetable oil, water and egg according to package directions. Cover batter and chill in the refrigerator for at least one hour.
  • 2
    Preheat oven to 350ºF. Scoop one tablespoon of chilled dough and roll into a ball. Place the ball in a cavity of the prepared mini muffin pan. Spray the back of a teaspoon with cooking spray and press the teaspoon onto the ball of dough to create a divot. Use your fingers to further form a cup so the dough forms around the sides and up to the top of the muffin cavity. Repeat to fill the rest of the cups.
  • 3
    Bake the cookie cups for 12 to 16 minutes or until the cups are set and the edges begin to pull away from the sides. If the dough puffs up, tap the top of the cookies so it sinks back into the cups. Let the cookies cool completely in the muffin pan. Use a sharp knife to loosen the cups from the edges of the pan and remove the cookie cups.
  • 4
    To make pots of gold, spoon a dollop of the prepared pudding in the cookie cup, top generously with gold sugar sprinkles and place two or three Lucky Charms marshmallow bits on the sprinkles.

Expert Tips

  • Prepare the dough the day before and keep in the refrigerator. Or, prepare your cookie cups up to two days ahead and keep in a sealed container. Fill the cups and add topping just before serving.

More About This Recipe
  • You don't even need luck to make these St. Patrick's Day party treats. They're easy! Finding a leprechaun’s pot of gold is incredibly lucky. Not only do those sneaky leprechauns guard their gold well, but… it’s a pot of gold. So, yeah, that’s a lucky find. But little pots of gold cookie cups with delicious pudding and topped with Lucky Charms™ marshmallow treasures are just as good as a pot of gold, right? Right? (She asks, looking sideways.) These two-bite cookie cups are…what’s the Irish Gaelic word for delicious? Ah, according to Google, blasta, so I’ll answer, “Yes!” Tip: If you want green pudding for the filling, either add green gel food coloring to the vanilla pudding, or use pistachio pudding instead. If you really want to go craiceáilte, add a rainbow using some printable art. Print with a color printer on a piece of letter-size, white cardstock. Glue the rainbow to a toothpick and insert into the filled and garnished cookie cups. There you have it! Little pots of gold even leprechauns would be proud to call their own!
