Mounds Inspired Cupcakes

24 Feb

I gotta tell y’all, these cupcakes are DELICIOUS!  I made them for my sister’s birthday.  She LOVES chocolate and coconut. 


My sister Nori.



You will need this:
White cake mix
Coconut extract
Snack sized Mounds chocolate candies
Eggs and oil for cake mix
7oz bag of sweetened coconut flakes
Milk chocolate icing
Cup cake liners and pan

Prepare the cake mix according to package instructions.  If you have a precious princess kitchen helper….put her to work! 
After it was done, I added 4 teaspoons of the coconut extract and mixed it in well.  Then I added half the bag of coconut flakes and gently folded it in to the mixture.  Then I baked the cupcakes according to the package instructions.
Once they were done and cooled I cut the snack sized Mounds bars in half.

I added a half of the candy on top of a cupcake.  Iced over and around it.  Then sprinkled the tops with the remaining coconut flakes. 

DELICIOUS!!

My sister was very happy!

The Sweetest Cupcakes Ever

4 Feb
I hope you are not looking for some special secret passed down from Grandma to Grandma recipe.  You wont find that here.  What you will find is the Sweetest Cupcakes Ever.  Why you ask?  Because me sweet little princess of a daughter helped me make and decorate them. 

This is what I used.  Found them at Target. 
Alice placed the liners in our little pans. 

 Then we blended up the ingredients.  And for anyone who noticed YES that is the cereal bowl from the movie Friday!!  Hahaha!
Now, Mommy ran the blender.  I did let her hold it for a few seconds to get a feel of it and for this picture!  Sorry Ladies, Santa left my KitchenAid stand up mixer back at the North Pole.  He promised to bring it next Christmas.  I must say though, this little mixer is great and does everything I need!!
While Miss Alie napped the and after the cupcakes cooled.  I decorated them.
I really hope you noticed that I METICULOUSLY placed each heart and sprinkle.  I figured it was so EASY to make these I might as well spend a little extra time on making them pretty.  I wasn’t quite done by the time Alie woke up from her nap and so she took over the decorating from there and gave her Mommy a break.  PHEW! I needed one too! 
She did a GREAT job.  Her cupcakes are just so precious.  I should tell y’all, they are her first!
How precious are her cupcakes? I’m so proud of my sweet little helper.

Thanks for stopping by!

Rocky Road Cupcakes

5 Aug
My husband LOVES Rocky Road Ice Cream.  I thought it would make him smile if I made him rocky road cupcakes for his birthday.  I feel like I cheated a bit because I used a box mix for the actual cupcakes.  This is a bit of a time saver and very convenient.  I will let you decide if using a box mix is considered “cheating”. 

First, make your cupcakes according to the package instructions.  I used devils food cake mix.  You can add crushed walnuts to the mix for extra crunchy rocky road cupcakes.  I did half with and the other without. 

The frosting!  The ooey gooeyness that makes these Rocky Road Cupcakes!!

You will need:
  • 1/4 c. melted butter
  • 2 1/2 c. confectioners’ sugar
  • 3 tsp. milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1 (6 oz.) pkg. semi sweet chocolate chips, melted
  • 1 c. chopped walnuts
  • 1 1/2 c. miniature marshmallows

Combine your melted butter, sugar, milk and vanilla in bowl. Add egg; beat well blended. I used a hand mixer to beat my mixture. I melted my chocolate in a double boiler or you can melt in a microwave. Just follow the melting instructions on your package of chocolate. Add melted chocolate; mix well. Stir in walnuts and marshmallows.  The mixture was very gooey so I placed it in the fridge for about 10 minutes to let it harden up a bit. Then I spread them over my cupcakes. I added extra mini marshmallows on top for “looks”. This also makes enough frosting for two layers of cake.
