Say hello to the easiest AND cutest Easter dessert/snack/cookie recipe, ever. EVER!

But first. You guys! It’s Friday! It’s my second most favorite day of the week! Sunday is my first. Until 5 p.m.
After 5 p.m., I dislike Sunday just as much as Monday because I get all frantic, trying to finish up all those Sunday to-do things, in an attempt to get something done before the new week starts.

Also? Yesterday I made Grapefruit Sorbet… um… ew. Not good. I quickly made-up for it by eating a huge bowl of Chocolate Granola with this coconut buttercream frosting on the side. I just had to. I also watched Full House. Then Friends. I ♥ Nick at Nite!

Obviously, my day ended well.

So. Today, you are doing this. Yes, you. Know why? Because these Easter cookie cups are SO easy and they are face-stuffing worthy. No joke, I popped 3 of ’em in 2.2 seconds. When I reached for the fourth cookie, my 4-year old started to whine because I was eating her food. What the?!? When did she learn to talk?

I must be going through a cookie withdrawal phase because that is all I want to eat. Aaaaaand coconut buttercream frosting. OH MY WORD! I can live on this stuff! Don’t worry, I balance it out with a few Banana Oats Chocolate Chip Cookies. Considering I’m being a huge hypocrite and providing you a recipe with refrigerated cookie dough, I feel that the frosting should make up for it. Right? Ohhhh, just wait and see… you will most definitely agree.

    1. Hi! You can find it at places like Whole Foods, or even Target. Also, my local grocery store carries it – it’s in the “organic” foods section. I hope you find it because it is really, really good! 🙂
