Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 24 muffin cups, or use paper liners. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  2. Cream together the margarine, brown sugar and white sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the milk, mixing just until incorporated.
  3. Fill each muffin cup 1/3 full, and place a chocolate egg in the center of each. Top with remaining batter until cups are 2/3 full.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown, and tops spring back when lightly tapped.
  5. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

These were fun to make with the kids. We decorated the cupcakes to look like "baskets" using licorice sticks for handles, green coconut for grass, and mini peanut butter eggs!

I tried this recipe because I wanted to make cupcakes for my fiance's family and my own...but my mom wanted carrot cake and I thought the design was really cute. Instead of making regular vanilla cupcake I got a recipe for carrot cake so I just made carrot cake cupcakes and made some cream cheese glaze & dyed coconut shavings green & got sweet tart jelly beans and fruity twizzlers. They came out so cuuute and so yummy!! Everyone loved them!
