  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 36 mini muffin cups with cooking spray. Divide cookie dough evenly into three medium bowls.
  • 2
    For colored dough, add purple and blue gel food colors to separate bowls. Mix dough until colors are incorporated; add 1 tablespoon flour to each of the colored doughs, and mix well. For sprinkled dough, add nonpareils to remaining bowl; mix until incorporated.
  • 3
    Shape cookie dough into 36 balls (12 from each bowl); place in muffin cups.
  • 4
    Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until light golden brown. Immediately press indentation into each with end of wooden spoon. Cool completely, about 20 minutes; remove from pan.
  • 5
    Spoon frosting into small resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag. Cut 3/8-inch tip off bottom corner of bag. Add about 1 1/2 teaspoons frosting to each cookie cup, adding a small amount to half of the cookie cup rims. Fill half with about 1 teaspoon desired cereal each, and stack another cookie cup inverted on top. Continue decorating, adding candy eyes and crushed and/or whole cereal for hair or ears, if desired.

Expert Tips

  • For 36 individual chomping monster cookie cups, decorate each individually, without stacking.
  • Crushed cereal works great as “monster hair.” To crush cereal, add about 1 cup in small resealable food-storage plastic bag, and seal. Crush as desired, using rolling pin.
  • For more crazy fun, add gel food color to frosting.
