Funfetti Sugar Cookie Cups {with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting}

Soft, fluffy, and the perfect sweet treat to make anyone jump for joy. *Clicking my heels* The cookie cups are baked with sprinkles and mini white chocolate chips in the cookie batter, then a swirl of vanilla buttercream frosting on top with more sprinkles. (We obviously can't get enough of those sprinkles!)
