Chocolate Chip Mini Cups with Buttercream Frosting

Happy Tuesday, friends!  I just realized it has been almost a week since I have posted.  I have so much to share and so little time to write.  One of these days I will get to unload my brain into the ol’ blogosphere again.

Until then, enjoy an easy dessert recipe that is easy on the eye, easy to make and delicious.  Using the Brownie Bites as inspiration, I bring to you my Easter Dessert (that was a huge hit at my Gr’pa Goecker’s house this past Sunday!)

I cheated and used store bought cookie dough.

Hey!  Don’t judge!  Limited time = use your dang resources!

Press into mini-muffin tins.  Bake at 350 for not much time.

How is that for a time-frame?

002

Eh.  5-8 minutes?

Just watch them.  Trust me.

Those babies are just SCREAMING for some frosting!

Using the recipe for my mint butter cream frosting, I subbed the mint for all vanilla flavoring.   My plan was to also add almond flavoring, but failed to plan and had none in my baking cabinet.  So, vanilla it was!  And just as delicious!

Topped with a Cadbury Egg and an Easter dessert was created!
