What you need to make these Easter Desserts
- Ready to bake chocolate chip cookie dough

How to Make Cookie Cups
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
Coat each cavity of mini muffin pan with cooking spray.
Break apart your cookie dough, and place one piece of cookie dough into each mini muffin cup.
Bake for 9-12 minutes, until the edges of the chocolate chip cookie cups are lightly brown or golden brown.
Remove from the oven. A shallow well should form in the center of each cookie cup once out of the oven. If not, use the end of the wooden spoon to make a small well for your frosting.
Let cookie cups cool for 10-15 minutes, leaving them in the mini cupcake pan.
Run a butter knife along the edge of each cookie cup to help release them from the pan.
Let them cool completely on wire rack.
Spoon frosting into a small bowl.
Add food coloring. Stir well.
(optional) Insert frosting tip into pastry bag or Ziploc bag. You cup the corner off if using a Ziploc bag.
Spoon frosting into pastry bag or Ziploc bag. Knead frosting down to the frosting tip.
Pipe frosting into each cookie.
Top each frosted cup with 2 Cadbury Mini Eggs.
Viola, the cutest and most easy Easter Dessert on this side of the Mississippi.
