Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray the muffin pan with some cooking spray and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl fitted with a paddle attachment, combine sugar, egg yolk, butter, vanilla extract, and salt. Beat well on medium speed for 2-3 minutes, or until light and fluffy. Gradually, add flour and continue to beat for 2 more minutes. Finally, add ¾ of the chopped chocolate and beat until fully incorporated – for 2 minutes.
Form the cookie shots inside the molds making the walls about ¼ inch thick. Bake for 20 minutes.
Remove from the oven and cool completely.
Meanwhile, melt the remaining chocolate in the broiler or a microwave oven. Dip chilled cookie cups into melted chocolate and optionally sprinkle with some matcha green tea powder. Transfer to the refrigerator to cool completely.
Pour your matcha green tea energy shots into cookie cups and optionally sprinkle with some more matcha. Serve and enjoy!
