    I would eat all of them to celebrate the end of my midterms!!! Okay, maybe not all of them… 😛

  2. Jerry Davison March 10, 2010 at 7:44 pm #

    My 10 week Biggest Loser contest at work is over next Tuesday. I’m on track to win the big prize of $230. I’d celebrate my victory eating them as is! They look delicious. I’d share them with my fat friends!

  3. SonCherie March 10, 2010 at 7:46 pm #

    I would try them in a new cupcake recipe for my boyfriend’s birthday! I have always wanted to try them!

  4. Kendall A. March 10, 2010 at 7:47 pm #


    of course! What else would you do with chocolate liqueur cups?

  5. Hunni Bunni March 10, 2010 at 7:51 pm #

    Hmm I would make some ganache and put it in the cups and surround it with fresh berries.

  6. Leigh March 10, 2010 at 8:00 pm #

    I love all of your ideas! But I might also use them to make little flavored chocolate ganache cups.

  7. Rae March 10, 2010 at 8:16 pm #

    I’d have a good St. Patty’s day, or a good day with my friends. I’m slightly curious how chocolate tastes with certain shots.

  8. cjvierow March 10, 2010 at 9:04 pm #

    I would put raspberry liquor in them–it is fabulous!! Had it at a winery in Wisconsin and have thought about making little chocolate cups so we could duplicate the experience. CJ

  9. sweetarchivia March 10, 2010 at 9:26 pm #

    I would fill with lemon cake, top with meringue, and then put a raspberry on top… assuming I don’t eat all of them beforehand!

    sweetarchivia at gmail dot com

  10. Nina March 10, 2010 at 10:08 pm #

    I would make jello shot cupcakes and put the cups in the middle with jello shots in them.

  11. Jen March 10, 2010 at 11:17 pm #

    The Bailey’s idea sounds amazing! I think they’d be heavenly with some chambord as well. I love some of the other ideas people have made too – so many possibilities!

  12. Waylon Aussies March 11, 2010 at 2:05 am #

    I’d fill them with organic peanut butter to make hella big peanut butter cups… yummmm

    waylonaussies at

  13. Lindsay March 11, 2010 at 4:45 am #

    I serve them on the side of some ice cream and a warm sauce.

  14. morbidsuccubi March 11, 2010 at 5:36 am #

    I like the idea of frosting shots far too much. :3
    But to be perfectly honest, we’d probably get mint chocolate chip ice cream and sprinkles, and go that way. ^.^

  15. April March 11, 2010 at 5:41 am #

    looks good, i want them!

  16. NikiTheo March 11, 2010 at 5:42 am #

    fill them w/ salted caramel. And then eat them all!

  17. Nicki B. March 11, 2010 at 5:54 am #

    I would fill them with Godiva liqueur and put them in the middle of my chocolate liqueur cupcakes!

  18. Anonymous March 11, 2010 at 6:42 am #

    I would fill with chocolate mousse and top off with a slice of banana and/or a raspberry.

  19. SB March 11, 2010 at 6:58 am #

    I would make a nice chambord spiked chocolate mousse and pipe it into the cup, do a sprinkle of finely grated white chocolate on top place a raspberry on there to finish it off. Yum! Raspberry and chocolate and liqueur in a cup you can eat…how can you go wrong?

  20. allison March 11, 2010 at 7:08 am #

    If I didn’t eat them plain from the box first, I would probably fill them with homemade creme de menthe ice cream for St. Patrick’s Day.

  21. MBM March 11, 2010 at 7:13 am #

    Wow – chocolate liqueur cups … they should absolutely fabulous!

    I would serve a shot of amaretto hot chocolate in them along with a warm, fresh-out-of-the-oven, hazelnut cupcakes … a perfect dessert nightcap!

    These little puppies are too beautiful to be served as a college party shot or disguised with a layer of gunk … they’re just gorgeous!

  22. roisin March 11, 2010 at 7:19 am #

    I want these chocolate cups! I want to try those cookies and milk cupcakes!

  23. Katie March 11, 2010 at 7:29 am #

    I would fill them with peanut butter and *chomp chomp chomp*.

    If I must do something baking related, I’d probably go for a dark chocolate cupcake, still fill them with peanut butter and insert them into the cupcake and frost with a divine peanut butter frosting I have a recipe for.

    katie (at) cassadyweb (dot) com

  24. Heather March 11, 2010 at 7:35 am #

    I would fill them with homemade Bailey’s mousse and then put them in the “Better than Sex” cupcakes or fill them with a shot of Malibu or Guavaberry rum and put them in the center of my Coconut cupcakes!

  25. Kathryn March 11, 2010 at 8:11 am #

    Actually, I have been dying to try out the Oreo cupcakes recipe, so I would definitely use them for that.
    My homemade Oreos were a hit when I made them last year, and I am a milk and cookies fiend. :)

  26. Trac March 11, 2010 at 8:25 am #

    Peppermint patty shots…mmmm.

  27. Cupcake Activist March 11, 2010 at 8:28 am #

    Besides just eating them, I would fill with peanut butter or ice cream or maybe both!

  28. Jerry Davison March 11, 2010 at 8:31 am #

    I am getting weak.
    I’m losing weight so quickly,
    I need choc-o-late!

  29. Jerry Davison March 11, 2010 at 8:36 am #

    Chocolate Liqueur Haiku … somebody stepped it up a notch!

  30. C Golden March 11, 2010 at 8:50 am #

    I would make a mint chocolate shooter. Part Creme de menthe, part kahlua and part chocolate milk mmm mmmm!

  31. Deligirl March 11, 2010 at 8:58 am #

    i’d use them at a party, half filled with adult beverages, and half filled with sweets. They would be perfect!


  32. Karen March 11, 2010 at 9:00 am #

    Have a chocolate party!

  33. Liz March 11, 2010 at 9:06 am #

    Kahlua and cream shots for me!

  34. Melissa March 11, 2010 at 9:38 am #

    in cupcakes, with baileys, or with peanut butter!!! there are too many options to choose just one, so I’d probably use a couple for each idea!

  35. Edana March 11, 2010 at 10:11 am #

    Oooh, creme de cassis? Anything berry-flavored. And I’m so curious about these shot glass cupcakes now. Hmmmm….

    vivalaevolution at gmail dot com

  36. carole March 11, 2010 at 10:22 am #

    would love to use these for jello shots for my grandaughters birthday

  37. candysu March 11, 2010 at 10:23 am #

    Creme Brulees! Or, use for homemade Kaluha/Baileys. YUM!

  38. Jenny March 11, 2010 at 11:06 am #

    I’d make a lovely passion fruit cream and inject a little passion fruit puree into the middle of it. You’d get nice and tangy combined with the smooth lushness of the chocolate. Man, that sounds great!

  39. Aileen March 11, 2010 at 11:18 am #

    fill them with green beer and stick them in green velvet cupcakes I’ve been dying to make!!

  40. Tiff March 11, 2010 at 11:21 am #

    I would definitely fill them with bailey’s and put them inside an irish bomb cupcake! Yum! Thanks for the giveaway!

  41. Gil March 11, 2010 at 12:07 pm #

    I’d eat them. Gimme gimme.

  42. Anonymous March 11, 2010 at 1:59 pm #

    I would fill them with my favorite creme de menth marshmallow mousse, which is green and out of this world. Top them with a small chocolate ball for a great St. Paddy’s treat.

  43. EvilDucky77 March 11, 2010 at 2:10 pm #

    I would love to make some cupcakes with them! Maybe an alcoholic version of your Oreo Cupcakes? I’m thinking Kahlua instead of milk! :)

  44. Chad March 11, 2010 at 3:33 pm #

    I’d fill em with Chocolate souffles topped with homemade chocolate liqueur ice cream!


  45. Laura March 11, 2010 at 4:09 pm #

    If they landed in my kitchen, I’d fill them with kahlua-spiked no-bake cheesecake topped with chocolate covered espresso beans!

  46. Kerry March 11, 2010 at 5:29 pm #

    So many good ideas already listed … but I would definitely use them inside a cupcake, filled with deliciousness (whether it’s ice cream, liquor or a special sauce).

  47. Rebecca March 11, 2010 at 6:02 pm #

    in a cupcake, filled with apricot jam or lemon curd.

  48. Melissa Darby March 11, 2010 at 6:22 pm #

    I would fill them with green beer and use them as a dessert and an after dinner drink

  49. Has Knits March 11, 2010 at 7:28 pm #

    I would fill them with white russians and go duck pin bowling with them! Mmmmmmm!

  50. Doe March 11, 2010 at 10:25 pm #

    fill it with a guinness float and go to town on it =P

  51. Loli and Lopaka March 12, 2010 at 12:43 am #

    I have a major sweet tooth, but I am also a health nut. I would fill them with tofu cheesecake filling and sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs.

  52. Anonymous March 12, 2010 at 1:03 am #

    Hi Stef!
    i would fill ’em w Baileys and drink ’em all. It’s been a really bad year…

  53. R. Thandi Norman March 12, 2010 at 3:09 am #

    I would make a delicious parfait with layers of fig jam, greek yoghurt spiked with curacao, berries macerated in white rum, and home-baked granola with flakes of white and dark chocolate. since i’m from boston,MA, we’d enjoy them during st. patty’s day rowdiness downtown…

  54. Anonymous March 12, 2010 at 3:42 am #

    I would fill them with chocolate mousse, then I’d top them off with a dollop of Gran Marnier flavored whipped cream and sprinkle with a couple of slivers of dark chocolate covered orange peel!
    One of my favorite flavor combos!
    Sandi Z

  55. Amy March 12, 2010 at 4:13 am #

    I’d share them with my family. They look yummy!

  56. Anonymous March 12, 2010 at 5:55 am #

    I would fill them with young thai coconut cream, with cacao sprinkles. YUM!!! They look sooo delicious! Hope I win!

  57. Kristen March 12, 2010 at 11:58 am #

    My mom makes the best white chocolate martinis. I think a strong batch of those would fill the cups perfectly!

  58. Jennifer March 12, 2010 at 1:10 pm #

    These would be so much fun to bake with!

  59. JaimeMuffin March 12, 2010 at 2:34 pm #

  60. Caroline March 12, 2010 at 3:35 pm #

    I would use them to drown my sorrows after my chemistry exam…. or celebrate, depends how it goes!

  61. Lisa March 12, 2010 at 5:41 pm #

    Fill with slightly warm Hazelnut Pear Flambe, or Black Pepper Stout Ganache. Top with Balsamic Whipped Cream. Consume!

  62. Alex March 12, 2010 at 7:09 pm #

    I’m so excited to find a St. Louis blogger, especially one who loves to bake! People always overlook us midwestern-ers. Looking forward to all your future posts!

  63. Sophia March 12, 2010 at 7:55 pm #

    What about Bailey’s infused buttercream for icing shots?

  64. Anonymous March 12, 2010 at 8:44 pm #

    I would make mini “cheesecakes” in them–put graham crackers in the bottom, then some cream cheese frosting!

  68. Kitty March 13, 2010 at 1:25 pm #

    I would fill with coffee ice cream.

  69. Miss Sarah Lindsay March 13, 2010 at 2:07 pm #

  71. ashley March 13, 2010 at 11:36 pm #

    well i am planning on making your green velvet cupcakes so i won’t say that as my answer. rather, i would make a nice rich chocolate cupcake, place the cup in the middle filled with a mix of pureed strawberries, then top the entire thing with white chocolate ganache(even the top of the cup) so that it would be a play on a tuxedo strawberry.

  72. Alexandra March 14, 2010 at 5:34 am #

    Pfft, portion control snack. Yeah right.

    I’d fill them with coffee cheesecake filling, drizzle with white chocolate, and die a happy person.

  73. megwin March 14, 2010 at 5:30 pm #

    I’d fill them with fruit mixed with cottage cheese, topped with pink colored whipped cream, and a cherry.

  74. lauramil March 14, 2010 at 5:49 pm #

    the possibility of world fame is just a click away!! but for real, i would definitely be making the oreo cupcakes

  75. lizz March 14, 2010 at 6:16 pm #

    i would make so many red velvet cupcakes with these!

  76. Laurel March 14, 2010 at 7:22 pm #

    I’d put peanut butter in them and serve them with peanut butter ice cream!! Yum :)

  77. Cooking Foodie March 15, 2010 at 12:49 am #

    Fill it half with chocolate raspberry mousse, top it with ganache.
    All around – some mousse and whipped cream swirls!!
    I need those cups now 😀

  78. GillianIvy March 15, 2010 at 2:34 am #

    OMG, drool. I worked at Godiva and enjoyed their liqueur truffles so much. I think I’d have to find a truffle recipe and fill them with yummy goodness.

    Or, failing that, I’d just gobble them all up when no one is looking.

  79. Anna Carlson March 15, 2010 at 8:47 am #

    I’d made a frappuccino and fill the cups with it. Or maybe even mocha cupcakes cut to the size of the cups and put inside them and then a layer of whipped cream and then a layer of the frappuccino drink.

  80. Sarah March 15, 2010 at 9:14 am #

    I’d fill them with peanut butter and plop them in a chocolate cupcake!

  81. Anonymous March 15, 2010 at 10:06 am #

    So many good ideas: frosting, peanut butter, or cheesecake!

    amanda.townsend2 at gmail dot com

  82. Bertha March 15, 2010 at 12:51 pm #

    I would fill it with liqueur for one of the dessert table menu on any kind of adult party, or fill it with tiramisu mousse with coffee bean on top, or raspberry mouse with fresh raspberry on top, endless possibilities!!!

  83. Margaret March 15, 2010 at 1:26 pm #

    I would fill them with raspberry chocolate mousse, chantilly cream on top with an almond tuile and celebrate graduating pastry school in just 4 short weeks!

  84. Lysa Nguyen March 15, 2010 at 1:38 pm #

    I would fill it with honey and whiskey ice cream with caramello topping drizzled on top.

    Here is a recipe:
    (scroll down for English)

  85. Esha March 15, 2010 at 1:56 pm #

    I would make it the container of a wonderful creme brulee where I would take painstaking steps to ensure the chocolate doesn’t melt while I burn the sugar!

  86. mmmeeegggzzz March 15, 2010 at 2:25 pm #

    Ever had a Mallo Cup?? These are BEGGING to be filled with marshmallow cream for a huge homemade version of Boyer’s awesome treat!! :o)

  87. Maggie March 15, 2010 at 3:15 pm #

    I think it would be fun to make a rum flavored jello shot, regular or creamy, with agar or gelatin and a lime or coconut rum and put them inside a rumcake cupcake.

  88. Emily Vasseur March 15, 2010 at 3:25 pm #

    I would definitely use them as glasses for the bacon infused bourbon I plan to make alongside of some bacon brownies. (highly recommended! So much salty sweet goodness.)

  89. Temperance March 15, 2010 at 4:11 pm #

    chocolate liqueur or amaretto for drinking pleasure, ice cream and godiva chocolate liqueur with nut sprinkles, oh the possibilities…

  90. Mandie @ Vegan Wagon March 15, 2010 at 4:29 pm #

    Fill them with a little ice cream and drizzle with salted caramel. Oh yes. And then share them my chocolate obsessed toddler princess. :)

  91. KJ March 15, 2010 at 4:37 pm #

    I would make mango cups for Easter!

  92. Mahila March 15, 2010 at 4:54 pm #

    Your ideas sound delicious!

    I would fill them up with chocolate hazelnut mousse. Or with nutella!

  93. Anonymous March 15, 2010 at 4:55 pm #

    I would make fruit tarts-fresh fruit topped over mousse…mmmmm!!!

    I’d love to fill them with strawberry mousse.

  96. Carolsue March 15, 2010 at 6:20 pm #

    Ummmm…. Chocolate Martinis! Berry cups! Lots of things to do with them.

  97. thehomemadecook March 15, 2010 at 6:21 pm #

    I would them into edible flower pots. With candy flowers, oreo dirt and candy grass. I am doing a flower theme for my 3 year old’s birthday in April. Thank you for the giveaway.


  98. Chris March 15, 2010 at 7:03 pm #

    I would fill it with some mascarpone cream and some raspberry syrup on top

  99. Ghadir March 15, 2010 at 7:20 pm #

    I would fill them with raspberry cream, top with a fresh raspberry and chocolate shavings. Then I’d give them to my mom for her birthday dessert!

  100. Heather Broad March 15, 2010 at 8:24 pm #

    Oooo – I’d fill them with Bailey’s ganache and make them the centerpiece of a impromptu cocktail party this weekend in honor of the Cupcake Project!

  101. chris March 15, 2010 at 8:48 pm #

    I’d fill it with white chocolate/raspberry mousse.

    Definitely have a dinner party with an assortment of sweet shots inside- something really pretty!

    Though I *love* the idea of cupcakes!

    cimorenegal @ gmail dot com

  104. Jana March 16, 2010 at 5:54 am #

    I would say that if you do the cupcakes, take normal glass shot glasses and grease them and put them in the batter, then pull it out and replace it with these.

    I would make Guinness Stout cake, take pieces and roll them into cake balls. Fill the very bottom with bailey’s irish cream and then plug the end with the cake ball (like a tiny ice cream cone). Dip the top in dark chocolate ganache and then a tiny swirl of chocolate mousse.

  105. Liz March 16, 2010 at 6:10 am #

    I’d make treats for friends and family! Filling w/ homemade buttercream sounds perfect. Or maybe “cheesecake” topped w/ a fresh berry.

  106. Anonymous March 16, 2010 at 4:58 pm #

    Fill them with cake/frosting balls (ala Bakerella).

  107. Rachael March 16, 2010 at 8:51 pm #

    I would make awesome cupcakes with chocolate milk inside and throw a party with friends just to delight in the gloriousness of it all.
