Sugar cookie cups filled with a bubble gum flavored frosting and topped with a colorful gumball!
If you give a food blogger a cookie cup, they’re going to want to fill it with something fun! And what is more fun than bubble gum?!
With these little bites of joyfulness I have been permanently cemented in my children’s minds as the BEST! My girls flipped over these little desserts.
I’ve become a huge fan of the cookie cup. It’s way more acceptable to eat five cookie cups as opposed to five cupcakes. Bite sized treats are just the best aren’t they?
These ones are filled with a happy bubble gum flavored frosting. Thanks to the Duncan Hines frosting creation packet with the bubble gum flavor. Those little packets are so much fun. Have you used them for anything yet? They’re made to go into their vanilla frosting base, I still make my own frosting, but these little packets add a fun pop of flavor.
And doesn’t that frosting just look like it’s pure bubble gum? The flavor is unreal, they really nailed it with this one.
Of course, these would need to be topped with an actual gumball for added delight.
Quick Tips for Making Sugar Cookie Cups
Don’t be intimidated to make these. All it takes is a mini muffin tin, make sure you spray it with some non-stick cooking spray. Once you have the dough, roll it into little balls about 1 inch in diameter. Place the dough into the muffin tin and slightly press it down with your thumb making an indent in the center of the dough. This helps them to bake more evenly and quicker. I bake mine for about 9 minutes. When you remove them from the oven you will see that the indent has pretty much disappeared. I use my 1/4 teaspoon, since it’s perfectly round, and slightly press down on the top of the cookie cup again. This creates the perfect size indent for the cookie cups. Allow them to cool in the pan for 5 minutes and then remove to finish cooling on a wire rack.Print
