Recipes for homemade snacks that are out of the ordinary - the famous cookie cups
Adorable and absolutely irresistible, these cookie mugs are arguably our favorite back-to-school recipe this year! In addition, they are not as complicated to prepare as they seem. I promise !
Tools and ingredients needed:
- 200 g butter
- 250g of flour
- 150g caster sugar
- 1-2 sachets of vanilla sugar
- 1 egg yolk
- 170g dark chocolate chips
- 1 chocolate bar (70% cocoa)
- ½ tsp. salt
- milk to fill the cups
- aluminum molds
Start by preheating the oven to 180 ° C and butter the molds. Mix the butter with the flour, sugars, egg yolk and salt until you get a relatively granular dough. Add the chocolate chips and mix again. Put a little dough in each mold and press it towards the walls and the bottom to form the cups. However, be careful with the thickness of the edges, which must be neither too thin nor too thick. Then let the cups sit in the fridge for 30 minutes before baking them for 20 minutes or until they turn golden enough.
Remove them from the oven and let them sit for 10 minutes before unmolding them. To do this, press fairly lightly on the inside walls of the molds to check if the dough has taken the shape of a cup. Then melt the dark chocolate in the microwave and divide it among the cookie cups. Leave to set for a few minutes and let rest in the refrigerator. When ready to serve, fill with milk and enjoy!
Apple-shaped cake pops made from Oreo

- green sugar paste
First, melt the sugar paste in the microwave. Prick the sticks in the Oreo cookies and dip them in the red sugar paste. Take a piece of green sugar paste and cut out several small leaves. Shape the veins of each leaf with a toothpick. Once the pop cakes are hard, use a little red icing to glue the leaves. Wrap them in transparent cling film and slip them into your child's schoolbag or eat them both.
Homemade snack recipes: pencil shortbread for the first day of school
We end our selection of homemade snack recipes with another exceptional treat to try to motivate your little wolves.

- 250g of flour
- 125 g sugar
- 1 egg
- 100 g butter
- 1 lemon zest
- 1/2 tsp. teaspoon salt
- icing sugar
- sugar paste (different colors)
In a bowl, mix the egg with the sugar and salt. In a separate container put the flour and make a well in the center. Pour in the egg-sugar-salt mixture and lemon zest and knead everything well until a dough forms. Flour your worktop, roll it out with a roller and let it rest in the fridge for 20-30 minutes. In the meantime, preheat the oven to 180 ° C / thermostat 6. Once the dough has hardened, cut strips 2-3 cm wide and cut the lead into a point with the knife. With the back of the latter's blade, score each pencil before placing it on a baking sheet covered with baking paper and placing it in the oven. Then roll out the colored sugar paste and cut strips the same size as the shortbread pencils, but without the tip. Use a notched cookie cutter to cut out some colored dough and form the colored leads. Mix the icing sugar with a little water. With a brush, brush the pencils with shortcrust pastry and cover them with colored pâté.
