  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Turn a 9x5 inch loaf pan or metal bowl upside down and cover the outside with foil. Place onto a cookie sheet.
  2. Stir together the flour, cocoa, salt and almonds; set aside. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Gradually stir in the dry ingredients to form a fairly stiff dough. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/4 inch in thickness. Cut into circles using a glass or cookie cutter. Starting at the top (bottom) of the pan or bowl, arrange cookies so they are overlapping. Work toward the edges covering as much of the pan as you can. Be sure to press each cookie on so you will have a good solid bowl.
  3. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until cookies are firm. Cool completely. Carefully turn the pan over and remove the pan from the foil, then carefully remove the foil from inside the cookie structure. Fill with cookie or candy.

I just love this for the simplicity of it and the sheer novelty value! Makes a bit of a change from ice bowls too!

The cookie bowl was a great idea except it melted off of the bowl and didn't get hard enough to stay in a shape.

We tried this (2Xs) and it never turned out right. I had little "helpers" working with me the 1st time and thought that had contributed to the less than desirable end result-tried it again solo and it did not turn out any better. Really disappointed in this. I thought it sounded really cute but it turned out greasy and just not formed well. Sorry, we just didn't care for this much at all.

This is a good idea but it is way to greasy and cookies slide off. The cookies do taste good .I would not attempt this again.

I so wanted this recipe to work. But what a mess!!The cookies don't stick around the pan. And they didn't have much taste.

This seemed like a good idea. I thought even if the bowl didn't work, they would still taste good. First of all, they were way too dry. I had to add almost a half c of milk before they could be shaped.When they were done, we took them off the mold and they fell apart. They aren't sweet enough, taste more like bread with cocoa powder. I'm sorry, maybe if some adjustments they will work better.

You can use molds of anything- flowers, jello molds, add anything -m&m's, colored candy, almonds, walnuts... I use this recipe every christmas to put the fudge and other yummies I make in wrap with the colored cellophane, bows, and small gift for family during christmas time and they actually look forward to what I come up with this year! Great recipe with lots of inspiration for so much more...

Didn't make a bowl, just made cookies. They were fantastic. Used on egg whites instead of whole egg, added a white
