The hardest thing about this is to locate circle pretzels which took a look at three different stores before I found them at Target. I also purchased Hershey Kisses and red and green M&M’s.

I placed the circle pretzels out on a cookie tin and put on as many as would fit. I then unwrapped Hershey Kisses and placed one in each circle. I then put then in a preheated over on 200 degrees for about four minutes. You are done when you can push the Hershey Kiss down.

I then placed one M&M down on the top of the Hershey Kiss and used the back of a spoon to press it all the way down. Then I let them cool.

You are done – so cool and delicious that i now need to make more – opps!

Cookies Shaped Like Easter Baskets

Spray inside of mini muffin pan with cooking spray.

Place a small amount of dough into each well and bake according to your sugar cookie recipes directions but watching to make sure they don’t burn.

When cookies are removed from oven and while cookies are still warm make an impression into them with your thumb to make the inside of the basket.

Be careful to make sure you are not putting your thumb into a cookie that is too hot so you don’t get burned. When cookie is completely cooled pipe icing into the cookie well after you have removed cookies from mini muffin pan.

Place jelly beans, M&M’s, chocolate chips etc into the icing.

Sprinkle coconut if you like around candies that were inserted. At the end use a section of string licorice to make a handle for the basket.

Great for parties, kids school functions including bake sales and can be placed on small plates around a party gathering to provide a sense of Easter decorations.
