2 1/4 cups
2 1/2 teaspoons
1 1/4 cups
small chocolate eggs, unwrapped
These were fun to make with the kids. We decorated the cupcakes to look like "baskets" using licorice sticks for handles, green coconut for grass, and mini peanut butter eggs!
The cupcakes were great but the chocolates melted right through the bottom.
I tried this recipe because I wanted to make cupcakes for my fiance's family and my own...but my mom wanted carrot cake and I thought the design was really cute. Instead of making regular vanilla cupcake I got a recipe for carrot cake so I just made carrot cake cupcakes and made some cream cheese glaze & dyed coconut shavings green & got sweet tart jelly beans and fruity twizzlers. They came out so cuuute and so yummy!! Everyone loved them!
My kids thought these cupcakes were great. I enjoyed them too. Great for anytime, not just Easter.
These were really good. I used mini-marshmallows to make bunnies decorations. Really fun for Easter.
I'm not the greatest fan of cupcakes, but these were delectable! I used Lilliput eggs that I had left in the freezer for several days, but I'm sure they would have stayed whole even if I hadn't frozen them. However, when I bit into a cupcake after I had let them cool, the egg was still quite cool, which I found refreshing. I ate them without icing, but my friends prefered them with icing. By the way, DO NOT tell your friends that there is a chocolate egg in the cupcake before they find it. They WILL be angry with you. :P
these were spectacular!!..followed recipe exactly as described, but after they cooled I iced them with duncan hines frosting....YUMMMM!
for me, the cupcakes were really good. not all the ingrediants dissolved well, so the batter was a little lumpy. When it was baked, the lumps helped add nice texture to the cupcake, it was like cornbread.
for me, the batter only made 15 cupcakes, instead of 24.
