Easter Egg Hunt Cupcakes Recipe

Cupcakes with chocolate eggs hidden in a field of chocolate grass
Prep Time 20 minutes
Servings 2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 24 Cupcakes
  • Buttercream frosting
  • 2 Cups green-tinted chocolate discs melted
  • Easter egg candy

Instructions

  • Using a squirt bottle or icing bag pipe melted chocolate onto parchment paper or a silicone mat look like grass. There is no need to be exact because you can break off any extra to fit onto your cupcakes. Run a bead of chocolate at the base of the grass to reinforce the bottom since you will be pressing this into your frosted cake. Let harden (can place in the refrigerator to speed up the process).
  • While waiting for the chocolate to set up frost your cupcakes (or cake) as you normally would. Be generous with the frosting since it will need to hold the grass upright.
  • Peel the chocolate grass off of the parchment paper and stand upright in the frosting along with some candy eggs.
