Ingredients

1
pouch (1 lb. 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix
1
tablespoon Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
1/3
cup butter or margarine, softened
1
egg
1
bottle (2.25 oz) Betty Crocker™ pink or blue colored sugar
1
container (12 oz) Betty Crocker™ Whipped fluffy white frosting
2
cups flaked coconut
Food colors
Assorted jelly beans

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375° F. Grease or spray 32 miniature muffin cups. In medium bowl, stir cookie mix, flour, butter and egg until dough forms.
  • 2 Roll dough into 32 (1 1/4-inch) balls; roll in colored sugar. Press 1 ball into bottom and up side of each muffin cup.
  • 3 Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until set and edges are light golden brown. Cool in pan 10 minutes; remove to cooling racks.
  • 4 Add coconut to a 1-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag. Add 3 to 4 drops food color and shake until well blended. It may be necessary to add 1 to 2 teaspoons water to help disperse the color evenly or additional food color until desired color is reached.
