Have you noticed that while some of my Easter recipes use PEEPS, many 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.
Easter Cookie Baskets:
What You Need:
1 box of white cake mix, any brand
1/2 C. vegetable oil
2 tbsp. flour
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)
Cadbury Mini Eggs
Round frosting tip
Disposable piping bag
What You Do:
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

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 🙂
You are making the cutest Easter desserts! I have nothing planned for this weekend, but I did try a new cookie recipe today…
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!
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!
