These Vegan Hot Chocolate Cookie Cups will wow anyone you serve them to! Sugar cookie dough is pressed into a muffin tray and baked. Then, a rich and delicious chocolate pudding is added. Finally they’re topped with hot chocolate’s best- mini (vegan) marshmallows and sprinkles!

To make the Vegan Sugar Cookies: Using either a stand or handheld mixer, beat the vegan butter and shortening until it’s until creamy and smooth (around 1 minute). Pour in the sugar and mix on high for 2-3 minutes. Add the cornstarch, almond milk, vanilla extract, almond extract, baking powder, and salt.

Using either a stand or handheld mixer, beat the vegan butter until it’s until creamy and smooth (around 1 minute). Pour in the sugar and mix on high for 2-3 minutes. Add the cornstarch, almond milk, vanilla extract, almond extract, baking powder, and salt. Add the flour cup by cup, mixing on low speed. Mix until all the flour is incorporated. Form the dough into a ball and wrap in plastic. Chill for at least an hour.

Remove from the refrigerator and roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface. The key with sugar cookie dough is to make sure it’s thoroughly chilled. Warm dough will not roll out properly.

Cut the dough using either a circular cookie cutter or the top of a drinking glass (which is what I did). Press the cookies into the greased muffin tray. Bake at 350 degrees for 11 minutes or until the edges of the cookie cups are lightly browned. Remove from the oven and let cool thoroughly.

The next step is to make the Vegan Chocolate Pudding. In a medium saucepan, heat the coconut milk with the cocoa powder, and sugar over medium heat. In a small bowl, whisk the cornstarch and 1/2 cup milk in a small bowl until dissolved. When the coconut milk mixture is warm, add the cornstarch mixture and bring to a boil. Once boiling, stir consistently for 2 minutes. Lower to a simmer for an additional minute, then remove from heat.

Transfer the pudding to the refrigerator and let cool for 2-4 hours. The pudding will get thicker the longer it chills.
