{EASY HOW – TO DIRECTIONS}:

You will need:

  • 1 box pink cake mix {I used Pillsbury Moist Supreme Strawberry Cake Mix}
  • 2-3 Eggs, oil & water according to cake mix box directions
  • 1/2 a bag of mini chocolate chips {I used Nestles Semi Sweet Chocolate chip morsels}
  • Green frosting {You can usually buy pre-made green decorating cake frosting – it comes in a spray can with its own decorating tools. OR you can make your own using your favorite vanilla/buttercream frosting recipe and green food coloring.} I’ve make these cupcakes both ways, and for this post I used the frosting from the can because it was for a last minute party & the can was easier. {I’m all about easy!}

{STEPS}

1. MIX the cake according to the box directions.
2. ADD about 1/2 the bag of mini chocolate chips and mix WELL.
3. Pour into cupcake cups – fill cups about 3/4 of the way full.
4. Bake according to the instructions on the box.
5. Once the cupcakes have cooled completely, pipe green frosting onto cupcakes and don’t be shy!
6. Enjoy!!!

I wish I had taken some pictures of steps along the way, but I think you get the idea! {Like I said – it was a last minute idea for a party!} BUT, they were a big hit! Here are a few more pictures of the cupcakes all dressed up:
