Confetti Cups!!!

Posted on
Chewy “confetti” cookie cups are filled to overflowing with a tart blue raspberry lemonade cream. This is a kid-friendly, fun recipe that can double as a refreshing summer dessert for all ages!
  • 1 tube (18 oz.) of Pillsbury refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 2  1/2 cups of Fruit Loops
  • 8 oz. of PHILADELPHIA cream cheese (room temp)
  • 1 packet (0.23oz.) of Kool-Aid (Ice Blue Raspberry Lemonade)
  • 2 cups of Jet-Puffed Marshmallow Creme
  • 8 oz. Cool Whip Topping
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Place 2 cups of Fruit Loops in a zip-top bag and roll then into crumbs using a rolling pin.
  • Place cookie dough into a mixing bowl and add Fruit Loop crumbs.  Using hands, mix together until well-blended.
  • Scoop cookie dough into a greased muffin tin, evenly dividing the dough between all 12 cups.
  • Bake cookie dough at 350 degrees for 12 minutes (or until browned around edges).
  • Remove from oven and allow cookies to sit in pan and firm up for about 3-5 minutes.
  • Run a small knife around the edges of each cup before popping it out and putting it on a plate.
  • Using a mini-tart shaper or the end of a wooden spoon, press the center of each cookie in to form a cup.
  • Chill cups until they are no longer warm to the touch (about 10 minutes)
  • For filling:  Cream together cream cheese and Kool-Aid until completely blended.
  • Add Marshmallow Creme and mix thoroughly.
  • Add 1 cup of Cool Whip and mix until smooth and creamy.
  • Place filling in a large zip-top bag and clip a corner.
  • Pipe filling evenly into each cookie cup.
  • Place about 1 c. of Cool Whip into a zip-top bag, clip a corner and pipe this on top of the filling.
  • Crush remaining 1/2 cup of Fruit Loops and sprinkle over the top.
  • Serve immediately or freeze and serve chilled.
My thoughts:  After making my Fruit Loop Pie for Real Women of Philadelphia and realizing that I couldn’t enter it into the contest because of the length of time required for the filling to set up I obsessed over how to make it work so I could use this filling (it is SO incredibly good!!!!!)  I knew the filling would work great in a cup and incorporating the cookie dough makes it quick and easy…I think I like these better than the original Fruit Loop Pie crust!  Individual desserts are just so fun!  ENJOY!!!

  6. Wow – I have never seen anything like these! So creative. I have never thought of using Kool-Aid to flavor things and using crushed up fruit-loops. Genius!

  11. When I put the cookie dough in the muffin tins, can I shape them to form the cup then or do they get too hard like that?

    • Hi! The 1st time I made this recipe I did exactly that- but as they bake they end up looking the same as they do if you didn’t shape them- and you need to shape them again after they come out of the oven. It will just save you some time to only do it once 🙂 Enjoy!

  12. These look delicious but tried to make them today and it was the most difficult baking task I have ever done!! They don’t even look good now that I got them done! It only makes 12 so definitely NOT WORTH THE EFFORT!!

  13. This is such a fun recipe- my kids had fun crushing the cereal and the filling was my favorite part (I like tart and sweet) I got the tart press tool and it worked well – thank you for the recipe- will make again.

  14. WOW! These look amazing. They will be on the desert table at my family reunion next week.

  15. I made these for Easter last year and were a hit! And yes, they were easy to do 😉 I plan on making them for my daughter’s birthday party as something different instead of cupcakes or cake this time. My husband wants me to use a different kool aide as he thought the blue raspberry was too tart for him. Have you tried other flavors that you recommend?

  16. I know you used regular muffin pans, but have you tried using mini muffin pans if so did it work. Im looking for something fun and new for a christmas eve party and wanted something bite size,and really hoping this would work.

  17. These look so delish
