These adorable Chocolate Chip Easter Baskets are a special springtime treat to be remembered.
- 1 package (16.5 oz.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Refrigerated Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar Dough
- 1 cup prepared white frosting
- Green food coloring
- 1/4 cup sweetened flaked coconut
- WONKA® SweeTARTS® or SPREE® Jelly Beans
- Thin-string licorice, various colors, cut into 3-inch pieces for basket handles (optional)
PREHEAT oven to 350° F. Grease and flour 24 mini-muffin cups. Place one square of cookie dough into each cup.
BAKE for 14 to 17 minutes or until golden brown. Remove pans to wire rack. If licorice handles are to be added, with tip of wooden pick, make two holes opposite each other on top edge of cup. Make sure holes are the same size as the width of the licorice. This is best done when cups are very warm. Cool cups completely in pans on wire rack. With tip of butter knife, remove cookie cups from muffin pans. Arrange on serving platter.
COMBINE frosting and a few drops of food coloring in small bowl, adding additional food coloring until desired shade is reached.
DISSOLVE a few drops of food coloring in 1/4 teaspoon water in small, resealable food storage plastic bag. Add coconut. Seal bag and shake to evenly coat coconut.
SPOON a small amount of frosting onto the top of each cup. Add a pinch of tinted coconut. Top grass with SweeTarts Jelly Beans. Insert ends of licorice into small holes in cups for handles.
Review This Recipe
Chocolate Chip Easter Baskets
When I made these, I used the 12 mini pan and put mini liners in the pan to make it easier to remove them for the next batch. I used the tube type dough. I cut off a 1" slice of dough and cut that into 1/4. That was the perfect size. I also couldn't find the various color licorice strings so I used the sour strings They were so cute when finished and I got rave reviews from dad, the girls at the store (where I got all the supplies) and the neighbors children. I will definetly make them again.
