St. Patrick’s Day Cupcakes

It’s Friday again and you know what that means………….

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, for dessert night this week I have made green cupcakes. Not your usual dessert night fare, I admit, but the boys don’t mind, I assure you, and it was a simple and fun treat to make without a lot of fuss.

St. Patrick’s Day Cupcakes

1 & 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 pkg. instant pistachio pudding mix

3/4 cup mini semisweet chocolate pieces

2/3 cup sugar

2 & 1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

2 eggs, beaten

1 & 1/4 cups milk

1/2 cup cooking oil

1 tsp. vanilla or 1/4 tsp. almond extract

1/2 a can of cream cheese frosting (1 cup)

Green colored sugar

1/2 cup candy-coated milk chocolate pieces

1. Grease muffin cups or line with paper baking cups. In a large mixing bowl stir together flour, pudding mix, chocolate pieces, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a small bowl combine beaten eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla. Stir into flour mixture just until combined. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full.

2. Bake in a 375* oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Frost with *cream cheese frosting; sprinkle with green sugar, then milk chocolate pieces.
