An original recipe by ME (inspired by my friend @dawnofthedelicious)
A part of my Nostalgic Cocktail Series
January 24 was National Peanut Butter Day, and one of my besties @probablyprocrastibaking hosted a Peanut Butter Collab on Instagram to celebrate, and I knew it was time to develop a recipe I had been dreaming about for a long time, these Peanut Butter Cookie Shot Glasses with Spiked PB&J Milk.
In my opinion, PB&J is one of the most classic childhood flavor combinations of all time. It was the first sandwich I learned to make on my own, and I made a lot of them as a tid. I am impressed that the love for those two amazing flavors has proven the test of time, because it’s still one of the most well known flavor combinations ever.
A few months ago, a foodie friend of mine, @dawnofthedelicious posted her cookie shot glasses which inspired these. Her recipe said you can start with your favorite cookie recipe so I did…it just happened to be Betty Crocker Peanut Butter Cookie Mix. To make the cookies have a more firm structure though, I added 1/2 cup of flour and one extra egg. She used a metal shot glass pan, and I tested my version of the recipe with a silicone mold. Note: you can used either, but the silicone does have a longer baking time (but I like it because you can see through it to ensure it’s well packed.)
The first time around, I made the mistake of not reading her directions well enough and didn’t coat the inside of the shot glasses with chocolate. The cookie glasses only lasted about 5 seconds once the milk hit. Pro tip: don’t be like me and skip that step. The chocolate needs to be coated very well, and hardened in order for the liquid to not seep through.
The original recipe calls for you to add your favorite milk (spiked or not spiked), but I wanted to develop a shot that specifically went with this. I’d heard of peanut butter and jelly shots before…but I’d never heard of PB&J milk, and I wanted to make it. I’m pleased to say, it is such a FUN drink. It’s only 3 ingredients, and it seriously tastes like peanut butter and jelly.
If you’re not much of a drinker and/or you want to enjoy this with your kiddos, regular milk will be just fine. The littles don’t even need to know it’s a shot glass, just tell them it’s a kid sized glass. They’ll get a huge kick out of it, I’m sure.
Below you will see my recipe card, that you can save right to your device. I recommend sending it to a friend and having a socially distanced party together with these fun shots! If you do end up making them, alone or with others, be sure to take a pic/video and tag me in it. Nothing makes me happier!
All my love,
Dani, a big tid
P.S. What was your favorite sandwich to make/eat as a tid?
