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?

Rock on!

About Bobbi

I love to cook and create dishes. I get inspired by other dishes and think of what I can do to make it different. You'll find that I like to keep my posts brief so you can see what you came to see....the recipe. I don't like looking for hard to find ingredients, so most of what you need to make my dishes are common ingredients. I take shortcuts most of the time but you will still find "from scratch" recipes here. I'm like pretty much everyone else and have time constraints here and there. But it's all still yummy in the end!!! My favorite foods are peanut butter, bananas, pumpkin and white chocolate. In other words, you will probably see more desserts than anything else.
