  1. Heat oven to 375 °F. In large bowl, mix cookie mix, butter and egg with spoon until soft dough forms. Shape into 36 (1 1/4-inch) balls (about 1 tablespoon each); place in ungreased mini muffin cups. Press indentation in center of each with end of wooden spoon.
  2. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown around edges. Immediately repeat indentation into center of each cookie with end of wooden spoon to create 1-inch opening, cleaning off end with paper towel when needed. Cool in pan 15 minutes. Remove to cooling rack; cool completely.
  3. Spoon frosting into resealable food-storage plastic bag. Cut off corner of bag. Gently insert cut corner of bag into indentation in each cookie cup. Squeeze bag to fill opening, about 1 teaspoon per cookie cup. Cut each truffle in half with small serrated knife, using a gentle sawing motion. Place truffle half on top of frosting, cut side down; drizzle with cookie icing, and immediately sprinkle with candy sprinkles.

Recipe Tips

  • If using 21-oz pouch of Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix, make dough as directed on pouch for drop cookies; shape into 42 balls. To fill cookie cups, use 1 cup frosting and 21 truffles, cut in half. Makes 42 cookie cups.
  • Use a cookie scoop to make portioning cookie dough even faster and more consistent.
  • Try dark or white truffles instead of milk chocolate for a new flavor combination.
