Milo Dino & Kopi Cookie Shots

July 20, 2015

In celebration of Singapore's 50th anniversary, I am launching a series of SG50 desserts that have been inspired by local flavours and created by me. First up are milo dinosaur and kopi cookie shots! These are inspired by milk cookie shots, which are essentially milk served in a cup made from cookie. As a big fan of milo dinosaur and iced kopi/teh, I absolutely adore these cookie shots. 

If you are hosting a party/gathering during the long national day weekend, then these cookie shots will be a really fun addition that your guests will enjoy. The cookie cups can be baked a day in advance, so that all you need to do on the actual day is to brew some iced milo/kopi/teh and serve!

Give this recipe a shot! (Shot, get it? Hahahaha so punny.)

Recipe adapted from SORTED
Servings: 6 portions
Time: 45 min baking time + 15 min baking time

[For Cookie Shot Glass]
110g of unsalted butter
45g of soft brown sugar
35g of caster sugar
A pinch of salt
1 egg yolk
190g of plain flour
80g of white chocolate chips
90g of dark chocolate chips
1.5 tbsp of fresh milk

[For Milo Dinosaur or you can make iced kopi/teh tarik]
5 tbsp of milo powder
1 packet of creamer
Boiling Water
2 tbsp milo powder for topping

[For Cookie Shot Glass]
1. MAKE COOKIE DOUGH: Beat the butter and both sugars together in a bowl. Mix in the egg yolk, followed by the flour. Fold in the chocolate chips.
2. Press the dough into the inside of some glass-like moulds so that there is an even layer on the bottom and up all sides. Chill for 30 minutes before baking.
3. Bake in a preheated oven at 180ºC for 15 minutes.
4. Force a shot glass into the baked cookies as soon as they come out of the oven to reinforce a neat shot shape. Allow to cool.
5. COAT THE INSIDES WITH CHOCOLATE: Warm the milk in a microwave and pour it over the dark chocolate chips. Stir until the chocolate has melted completely. Let it cool slightly before coating the insides of the cookie shot glass with chocolate and chill in the fridge till the chocolate hardens.

[For Milo Dinosaur or you can make iced kopi/teh tarik]
1. Make the milo dinosaur. In a cup with the milo powder and creamer, fill in hot water until it is only 1/3 full. Mix well until thoroughly dissolved before adding the ice. You can also choose to make iced kopi/teh tarik

[Putting it Together]
1. Pour the milo dinosaur into the shot glass and top with milo powder. You can add Redondo biscuits for garnish.
2. BOTTOMS UP! Cheers!

    1. Hi, sorry I am not familiar with chopped brown sugar. As long as it is fine enough, if not the dough will be lumpy.
