Easter Cookie Baskets – A Little Love Note

These Easter Cookie Baskets Easter Treats are pretty much as adorable and as fun as it gets. And they're easy to make! Make them with your kids, or maybe have the Easter Bunny leave them! The sky is the limit with Easter fun.

I think it’s safe to say that my Easter posts have been love letters to Cadbury Mini Eggs.

Have you noticed that while many of my Easter recipes use Peeps, ALL of them use Cadbury Mini Eggs? And really, you can use any candy eggs you want for these! Robin’s Eggs would look lovely in all recipes. You could use M&Ms shaped like eggs. For all I care, you could make Easter eggs out of edible (or even inedible, if that’s your thing) Play-Doh and put them in these recipes. Or if you’re like me, you keep Cadbury Mini Eggs in your bottom right desk drawer (yes, that’s the one, Scarlet) and you don’t even mind the sounds of little hands rummaging through your desk drawer and leaving the bag open so that little Mini Eggs roll out into your new desk drawer. That just means you have to eat them immediately. Easter Law.

I’m going to be on the briefer side today because Scarlet is in a school play and it’s Math Night at the school. It’s also Grandpa Ernie’s birthday, and we’re having Uncle Gabe stay over. Not to mention, we’re having a humongous Passover Seder, right after the humongous Easter Egg Hunt, and then Easter. I think I’m done with Easter recipes, but no promises!

Ingredients:

1 box of white cake mix, any brand
1/2 C. vegetable oil
2 tbsp. flour
2 eggs
1 C. coconut flakes
Green food coloring
Non-stick cooking spray
Sour Punch Green Apple, Strawberry and Blueberry Candy Straws (I found mine at my local gas station in the candy section)
White frosting
Toothpicks
Cadbury Mini Eggs
Round frosting tip
Disposable piping bag
Kitchen scissors

Easter cookie

Directions:

1 – Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray a 12-count muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray

2 – Combine the white cake mix, flour, vegetable oil and eggs, mixing well

3 – Take a 2″ scoop of cookie dough and place in each muffin well, gently pressing down to fit the muffin tin well

4 – Bake for 15-17 minutes

5 – Remove from the oven and let cool completely

6 – Place the coconut flakes in a small dish and add a few drops of green food coloring. Stir to combine and set aside

7 – Take a toothpick and gently carve 2 holes on top of each cookie (please see photo). You want it large enough for the Sour Punch Straw to fit

8 – Once the holes are carved, use the kitchen scissors to shorten the Sour Punch Straws to your desired length (about 4-5″) and insert into the cookie

9 – Attach the round frosting tip to the disposable piping bag and fill with frosting

10 – Generously frost the top of the cookie

11 – Add green coconut flakes

12 – Top with Cadbury Mini Malted Eggs

13 – Repeat with all the cookie cups

Easter Cookie Baskets – A Little Love Note — 6 Comments

  1. Seriously we are so twins, because I happen to love Cadbury Eggs. So much so that I tried so hard not to buy them until last weekend as I knew I could eat the whole bag myself and then would just have to buy more for Easter! So I hid them and hope I can now find them for Easter LOL! Plus, I am now going to have to find them to make your adorable baskets here 🙂

  2. This is just plain adorable and SO creative!! I wasn’t super festive this season but I have my reasons lol Hope you had a great one!

  3. I love these! You are so creative. I never know what I’m doing in the kitchen. Natalie usually teaches ME things, ha. Even though Easter is nearly over, we still might make these. We have leftover goodies!
