Aren’t these cute? I saw the recipe in the magazine “Simply Sweet Fun Treats” . Pretty much followed it like a good girl. However, after making them, with the help of 2 of my grandsons, I would change up one thing. I wouldn’t use the cupcake liners. They are not as easy to get off cookie cups as they are cupcakes.
These were much easier to make than you think too. I pretty much did the cutting and baking. My grandsons did the rest. Yes, it could have been prettier, but they love to help me make fun treats. So much better to see them enjoy this than to have it be “pretty”, don’t you think?
To make these, you will need refrigerated cookie dough. I chose sugar cookie dough, but you could go with any dough you prefer. In fact the recipe called for peanut butter cookie dough. Then you’ll need chocolate frosting, green frosting, jelly beans and sour straws.
These are minis, so you’ll need a mini cupcake pan and mini liners. You could change up and go with full size, just end up with less. 12 instead of 24. No biggie.
Do you let your kids use their own creativity when baking? Or do you take over?
