  • 1 package (16-ounces) refrigerated Cookie Dough (I've used Sugar Cookie Dough and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough to make these cups)

For the Coconut Buttercream

  • 4 tablespoons butter , softened
  • 1-1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon coconut extract or vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • food colors
  • Easter Candy


  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Grease a 24 mini-muffin pan with baking spray; set aside.
  • Press a tablespoon of cookie dough onto bottom and up the sides of each muffin cup.
  • Bake 11 to 13 minutes, or until light golden brown.
  • Cool completely in pan.

In the meantime, prepare the buttercream frosting.

  • Combine butter, powdered sugar, salt, coconut oil and extract in your mixer's bowl.
  • Mix on low speed until well blended; increase speed to medium and continue to beat until creamy and smooth.
  • Add water; continue to beat until thoroughly combined.
  • Add more water if needed for thinner consistency.
  • Divide up the frosting into 3 or 4 bowls and mix in 2 to 3 drops of food color into each bowl; mix until thoroughly combined.
  • Pipe or spoon the buttercream into cooled cookie cups.
  • Top each cookie cup with Easter Candy.
  • Serve.
