This post first appeared on my other blog in 2014, but since I no longer maintain that one, I'm reposting some of my favorites here!
Today I have a fun candy coated cupcake!
I had enough batter leftover from another baking project to make 8 cupcakes, so I took 2 tiny boxes of nerds (about 2 tablespoons worth) and mixed it into the leftover vanilla batter, however the recipe below is adjusted for a full 24.
Once I frosted and tasted them, I really wished I’d make a whole batch because they were amazing! The nerds inside the cupcakes with delicious little pockets of tartness! So yummy!
1 recipe Vanilla Cupcake batter, prepared
1 cup Nerds candies, any flavor
1 buttercream, prepared
Additional Nerds, for garnish
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and prepare muffin tins with paper liners.
Prepare the Vanilla Cupcake batter as directed, then stir in the Nerds. Pour into the prepared liners and bake for 22-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cupcakes comes out clean. Cool completely.
1M decorating tip to swirl the
frosting onto the cupcakes. Sprinkle
immediately with additional Nerds. Wilton
Makes about 28 cupcakes
