Cereal… it’s not just for breakfast anymore!

There’s just something about a cookie cup that makes me smile.  They’re little, edible, able to hold anything from ice cream to fresh fruit – what a fun dessert!

These cookie cups are perfect for any type of party because they look like confetti.  The secret ingredient?  Fruit Loops cereal crushed into refrigerated cookie dough!  A tart blue raspberry lemonade cream fills the center for a celebration in your mouth!

  8. Run a small knife around the edges of each cup before popping it out on to plate.
  9. Form a cup in the cookies by gently pressing  the end of a wooden spoon,  in the center. Chill cups until they are no longer warm to the touch (about 10 minutes)

    Very cute idea, however it’s all sugar and coloring. Not very healthy I’d never make it.
