Funfetti Cookie Cups Recipe

Growing up, I always requested Funfetti cake for my birthday!  There is just something about that delicious cake batter flavor with sprinkles that I have always loved!  Rather than making a whole cake, I thought I would make something a little easier for my kiddos to eat and these Funfetti Cookie Cups were born!  They made the perfect after school snack and I didn’t feel as guilty eating so many of them because they were so cute and little. 😉
