Caramel Snickers Cookie Cups for the Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel

Updated: Feb 3, 2022

Happy Marian Feast Day!

Our little tradition for the feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel is to make a caramel treat, it's a delicious start to get us thinking. It's also a fun play on words and a real Starbucks ordering debate! I am constantly being corrected by the barista for the way I order anything caramel flavored.

How do you say it?

Car-mel or Car-a-mel?

Either way you say it when you're making this treat will be fine, but there's only one way to say it when referring to the apparition of Our Lady on Mount Carmel! :)

A devotion to her is one that is close to my heart, not long after starting college I decided to wear the brown scapular. But, if you would like to learn more about it you will have to scroll down passed the recipe. From personal experience, I don't like too much talking before the recipe because it usually means a lot of scrolling to get what I came for. With that said, let's get going!


Prep Time: 5 Minutes

Bake Time: 10-12 Minutes

Yields: 24 Cookies

Assemble the Gang

  • Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (homemade or store bought)

  • Fun Sized Snickers Bag

  • Caramel Drizzle (squirt bottle is easiest)

  • Cooking Spray

  • Muffin Tin (for mini or full size muffins)

Grease your tin with any cooking spray of your choice. I may or may not know how to aim...

I used a mini muffin tin, which you may not be able to tell from this picture. I prefer this size because the bite size snickers fit perfectly in the center!

Take a piece of your cookie dough and press it down with your thumb in the center.

Then shape the cookie dough around the sides to form a cup. Try your best to make the cup even around all sides so that it bakes evenly.

Repeat that until your entire tin is full, then treat yourself to a little bite of leftover cookie dough. Sneaky sneaky!

Bake the cookies at 350 degrees for 10 minutes! The cookie dough will rise so when you take it out and you have lost your cup shape, don't fret, they will fall back down.

Unwrap the bite size snickers and place them in the center of each cup.
