Chocolate Chip Cup-Cookies

Valentine's Day. The perfect day to give someone you love something sweet. And even better if it's something homemade.

I usually make gifts for my neices and nephews, and I knew just what I could make for my oldest niece, Nadya, as a Valentine's Day treat.

This past fall, during a vacation to Hilton Head Island in South Carolina, we picked up some cupcakes from Sweet Carolina Cupcakes, which was right across the street from where we stayed, and Nadya chose a "Cup-Cookie" - basically a cookie baked into cupcake form and filled with the most delicious chocolate frosting ever. Nadya has been talking about that Cup-Cookie ever since, so I knew I had to try and replicate it for her.
