Peeps Chicks Surprise-Inside Easter Cupcakes

Peeps Chicks Surprise-Inside Easter Cupcakes

It looked like a cupcake shop in my kitchen yesterday.  My ankle is still giving me some trouble and slowing me down so I’m not getting out and around as much as I usually do so spending some time baking seemed like the perfect way to spend a day.  These little cuties come from “Betty Crocker”, I know they look like just any old cupcake on the outside but it’s the inside that makes them fun.  Here’s a look at the inside:

Peeps Chicks Surprise-Inside Easter Cupcakes

Right?  So here’s how:

1 cake mix of your choice plus ingredients to make cake (I used a Duncan Hines Pink Velvet cake mix)

assorted candies, jimmies, sprinkles of your choice (I used Cadbury Mini Eggs and Easter shaped sprinkles)

frosting of your choice (I used my favorite Buttercream Icing colored green)

green food coloring

24 Peeps brand marshmallow chicks

1  Prepare cake mix according to package directions and bake according to package directions for cupcakes.  Allow to cool after baking.

2  Using a melon baller, scoop out center of each cupcake, about 1″ deep.  Fill each with candies and sprinkles.

3  Using green colored frosting, place a blob directly over candies in the  hole and seal edges of hole so that candies do not get mixed in with frosting, continue frosting as desired.  Top with Peep after frosting each cupcake.
