Hot Chocolate Cookie Cups with whipped peppermint topping! An easy sugar cookie cup is filled with rich, decadent chocolate ganache, then garnished with peppermint pieces and a straw for a gorgeous presentation.
Add heavy cream, confectioners' sugar, vanilla pudding mix, and peppermint extract to a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, and whip until light and fluffy (about 2 minutes). Scrape down the sides as needed.
Add a little bit of crushed peppermints and a cut paper straw for decoration if interested. If you want them to have an extra special presentation, break off the curved piece of a pretzel twist and use for a "handle" on the cookie cup.
