EASTER ~ MALTED EGG CUPCAKES

 

I look forward to Easter each year because I know the stores will be stocking Malted Eggs.  I just love them!

If you follow my blog, you may have seen my recipe for Malted Egg Rice Krispies Treats.  These little treats disappear so fast. This is probably because I grab a spoon and eat most of it before it even makes it to  square dish I used to make the bars!

With my love of these malted eggs in mind, I tried to create a cupcake that has the same malt goodness.  As I have stated before, I am not a huge chocolate fan.  If you are, you may want to substitute the malted vanilla cupcake or frosting with malted chocolate.  The chocolate malt powder can be found next to the regular malt powder in you local store.  In my local Walmart, it is located next to the hot chocolate.

ST PATRICK’S DAY MINT MILKSHAKE

I have been seeing all of these amazing Freakshakes on Pinterest and decided I wanted to try making these amazing looking milkshakes.  For my first attempt, I decided to make this chocolate-mint shake since Saint Patrick’s Day is just around the corner.

I topped it with green & white candies,  Andes mint chocolates,  and these lovely powdered donuts.  I also sprinkled everything generously with green sugar and a drizzle of chocolate sauce.  Of course, I had to add a considerate amount of whipped cream.

CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES W/ STRAWBERRY FROSTING

I love chocolate covered strawberries and eat them more often than I should.

Sometimes I am so impatient that I just melt me a big old bowl of chocolate and grab a handful of juicy red strawberries and start dipping.  This girl is not waiting for some chocolate to harden on a strawberry.

My love for this wonderful flavor combination is the reason for these chocolate cupcakes & starwberry cupcakes.

For the chocolate cake, I use the same recipe that I use for my Hot Fudge Sundae cupcakes.  It’s  the recipe that I use for almost all of my chocolate cupcakes.  It’s super quick and easy and starts out with a chocolate cake mix.

BUTTERFINGER RICE KRISPIES TREATS

I was craving Rice Krispies treats that other day so I made a quick run to Walmart a grabbed a box of Rice Krispies (of course I price matched and used a coupon) and a bag of marshmallows.

I had all of my ingredients laid out when I decided to look through my pantry to see if anything looked interesting to throw into the mix.  BINGO….I had one bag of  Butterfinger baking bits that I had found on sale for $1.00 a bag.

There is no magic recipe here.  Just make batch of krispies treats and toss in the amount of butterfinger that looks good to you.  Or maybe even the whole bag!  No judgement here.
