The weather around here has been crazy! Warm and beautiful one day, cold and wet the next. We are so excited that Spring starts today. Our Spring Sprout Cupcakes are a fun way to celebrate the first day of Spring.
What you Need:
1 box chocolate cake (plus required ingredients)
1 container chocolate frosting
1 package chocolate sandwich cookies
Green taffy (we prefer Airheads)
Mini terra-cotta clay pots which you can pick up 3 for $1 at Dollar Tree
- Prepare cupcakes as directed on box. Allow to completely cool.
- Place chocolate cookies in a large resealable bag and use a rolling pin to crush.
- Place one cupcake (still in the liner) inside of each pot, and then continue with the following steps.
- Spread a layer of chocolate frosting on each cupcake. Sprinkle crushed Oreos on top to create the appearance of dirt.
- Using kitchen scissors or a sharp knife, cut out leaves and sprouts from the taffy.
- Place a sprout in the center of each cupcake.
These turned out so cute! Unfortunately at my house, we couldn’t possibly wait to see what these sprouts would grow into.
