Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, stir cookie mix, flour, softened butter and egg until soft dough forms. Stir in 1/4 cup of the candy sprinkles. Shape into 36 (1 1/4-inch) balls; place 1 in each of 36 ungreased mini muffin cups. Place indentation in center of each with wooden spoon.
  • 2
    Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until light golden brown. Immediately repeat indentation into center of each cookie with end of clean wooden spoon to make 1-inch opening, cleaning off end with paper towel when needed. Cool in pan 15 minutes. Loosen edges with small knife if needed. Remove to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 3
    In two small bowls, divide frosting; add purple and orange food colors as desired. Place large piping bag fitted with medium star tip on its side. Using large icing spatula, spoon purple tinted frosting so it covers half of the length inside of piping bag. Carefully spoon orange tinted frosting on top of purple tinted frosting.
  • 4
    Insert tip into indentation in each cookie cup. Squeeze bag to fill opening, piping about 2 heaping teaspoonfuls in each cookie cup. Sprinkle remaining candy sprinkles on frosting swirls. Store loosely covered at room temperature.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Disposable plastic piping bags and tips can be purchased in the baking section of most craft stores.
  • tip 2
    Spooning the colored frostings on top of each other in one decorating bag creates the two-tone frosting swirl. As you pipe the swirls, some may be all one color, depending on how you spoon the frosting into the bag. The more food color added to the frostings, the deeper the colors will be.
  • tip 3
    Short on time? Tint the tub of frosting with one of the gel food colors, and pipe into Halloween Cookie Cups.
  • tip 4
    Using a cookie scoop makes quick work of portioning cookie dough so cookies are easier to shape into balls and will bake in the same length of time.
  • tip 5
    Feel free to make and bake cookie cups the day before serving. Cool completely, then store in a covered container at room temperature until the next day. Continue as directed in recipe.
