How adorable are these cupcakes???
I found them on The Cupcake Review and decided to make them to bring to a BBQ at my in-law’s house.
Unfortunately, most of the chocolate chips sunk to the bottom…even though I coated them with a little bit of the dry cupcake mix first (if anyone has tips for me, please comment and let me know). I wish I had added more food coloring to get deeper colors, but that’s OK. They were still delicious!
1 batch of your favorite vanilla cupcake mix (from scratch or a box)
1 batch of your favorite vanilla frosting (from scratch or a can)
Mini chocolate chips
Red food coloring
Green food coloring
Once your cupcake batter is made, add some red food dye and stir until it is the desired color. Stir in some mini chocolate chips (I used probably about 1/2 cup) and fill cupcake tins 3/4 full.
Bake according to directions, allow to cool completely.
Stir some green food coloring into the frosting. Pipe it onto the cupcakes or frost with a knife.
