 Snickerdoodle Seven Layer Cookie Cups | | #snickerdoodle #cookiecup #magicbar

I had a rough day yesterday. A few weeks ago, right before Christmas, I took a bad fall on my snowboard (off a handrail) and chipped my front tooth and hurt my back. I took a few days off and slowly eased myself back on the mountain. Three weeks later, I am thinking I am ready to get “back on the horse” and hit that rail again. I got to the top of the run, popped in my new mouth guard, stood in front of it and started shaking. I chickened out- I have a total mental block. This same handrail is one that I fell on two years ago and really banged up my knee. I am so frustrated with myself that I can’t overcome my nerves and just hit the dang rail. I have successfully hit that rail so many times, I just can’t seem to get past this one. No one likes to feel like they can’t do something. I hate the thought of falling again and potentially being sidelined for the rest of the season, but I am not willing to sacrfice having a good time. Now that I have told all of you about this, I feel like I am holding myself accountable for completing my goal. 

So instead, I think I will go home and bake a batch of these Snickerdoodle Seven Layer Cookie Cups. I love my Maple Snickerdoodle Cookie Cups so much, that I knew I needed to make a new cookie cup with them. I decided to combine the cookie together with a seven layer bar. I shaped out the center of the cookie and filled it with your typical seven layer bar ingredients: graham crackers, chocolate chips, walnuts, coconut of course, sweetened condensed milk. The coconut turns slightly brown on top, the condensed milk melts into the middle and the cookie remains soft.

I feel like you could make these cookie cups with any flavor combination. To make it easier on yourself, you could even use a boxed cookie mix or perhaps some pre-made dough. You can also switch up the ingredients to your liking. I don’t know about you, but I think seven layers bars are So combing cookie and seven layers bar is just the right decision if you ask me.

    I’m sorry to hear about your injures. Although I don’t snow board, I do ski and the last time I went I was scared to death. I have been skiing all my life and for some reason two years ago when I went skiing for the first time in Vail, I froze and couldn’t even make it down the blue hill. I’m not sure if I am getting older and just felt scared or what. But I am determined to go skiing again in Colorado at some point. Good luck to you! 🙂 These cookie cups look amazing by the way! 🙂

      Oh thank you Christina, you are so sweet. I absolutely LOVE Colorado and often travel to Vail. But since the mountain is so steep, crowded and not in the sun most of the day, it gets very difficult to ski there. I hope you will give it another chance!
