PREHEAT oven to 325° F. Grease and flour 20 mini muffin cups.

MIX chopped Butterfinger gently into whipped topping; set aside in refrigerator.

SEPARATE dough along pre-scored lines; roll into 20 balls, using two pieces of dough per ball. Place 1 ball in bottom of each prepared muffin cup. Press dough halfway up sides of muffin cups, making indentation in center of dough. Freeze muffin cups for 15 minutes.

BAKE for 15 to 18 minutes or until golden brown. Cookies will be puffy. Remove from oven; gently press indentation with a teaspoon. Bake for an additional 1 to 2 minutes. Cool cookies in muffin cups for 5 minutes. Remove to wire rack to cool completely.

FILL each cookie cup with 2 tablespoons whipped topping mixture. Decorate each cookie cup with a gummy bug and sprinkle with Nerds.

This was fun and easy to make. My 2 older boys (15,12) loved helping me with these. We are trying recipes for the little ones 1st birthday!

i made this for my moms birthday and she loved them now i have to make them for evry birthday

Great for school birthday parties. original when seeking somethng different that kids will like

This is an excellent idea in lieu of the standard cake theme. The kids would certainly have more fun this way.

I would have rated this recipe better, but my 12 year old grandson had a hard time preparing this; even with me at his side. He want to become a baker/chef when he is old enough so I've been preparing him for the world ahead of him. Maybe he just needs more time to develop. He was upset that it didn't turn out like the picture shown. Sorry....

this was a great recipe for my son first graders.They enjoyed the cookie crust and wanted to know when I was bringing the next treat to school. Nathaniel was a star for the day!

I made these with my grand daughter and it was fun. I have to try again because they didn't go over the best. Didn't know if I had done something wrong.
