You simply need to shift some heat from one to the other. The only way of getting back to one hot cup and one chilled cup would be to use a heat pump: start with the two cups at room temperature, now use a heat pump to transfer heat from one to the other. One goes up by 20°C, the other goes down by 20°C. The good news is that the energy required to make this heat transfer possible is far less than the energy used by any conventional method of heating up a cup from room temperature to 40°C.
