Mint Cookies and Cream Buttercream Cups

I’m not feeling all that great today so I’m going to keep this short.  These candy cups will kind of win over anyone who loves a little 2-bite treat.  My mom, while a buttercream lover, isn’t usually a fan of mint desserts and loved these.  I’m currently coming up with many excuses to make other versions and flavors.

Plus, I actually had some extra buttercream in the freezer so these were super easy to make.  Plus they are cute.  Plus you can pop one in your mouth whenever you have a sweet tooth.  Plus they are killer for chocolate cravings.
