Easter Chick Cookie Cup

Don’t these Lil’ Chick Cookie Cups make you think of spring? It’s kind of hard to get spring off the mind! We had a beautiful weekend with warm weather. We went with some friends to walk around Minnehaha Falls in Minneapolis. It was funny to see people dressed for every kind of weather. Some people had on winter boots and other were walking through the slushy snow in flip flops!

Here is a picture from the bottom of the falls. Some of the more daring and willing to get dirty park visitors were doing behind the falls on the slippery, muddy slope but we opted not to. We had a great time and enjoyed the warm day with friends.

How To Make Cookie Cups

To make the cookie cups, separate refrigerated sugar cookie dough into 24 pieces. Press the pieces of cookie dough into a greased mini muffin tin. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-13 minutes. Remove from the oven and use a small cup or spoon to make indentations in each cookie cup. Allow the cookies to cool completely in the pan. Once they have cooled, gently remove them from the pan.

Dipped Cookie Cups

Melt vanilla almond bark in the microwave according to the instructions on the package. Dip the cookie cups into the melted almond bark and place them on a silicon mat or a piece of parchment paper to harden.

Vanilla FrostingFrost the insides of the cookie cups with vanilla frosting leaving room for the marshmallow chick. Use a thin, sharp knife to cut off any excess almond bark from the bottom of the cookie cups.
