Nest Cupcakes With Hidden Surprise

Chocolate on chocolate on even more chocolate, this is one mouthwatering dessert. I made mine jumbo sized, so they were like little chocolate mountains. Drop a Cadbury egg in the batter, bake it; then smother in chocolate frosting, roll in chocolate sprinkles, make a little depression in the top of the frosting and drop a few egg-shaped M&M’s into the nest. It’s a chocolate bonanza!

Make the chocolate cake batter following the directions on the box. Scrape the batter into 9 jumbo muffin wells, filling until the batter is halfway up paper liners. Stick an unwrapped Cadbury Crème Egg in the middle of the batter, then cover with batter. Bake in the oven following the direction on the back of the box or until the cupcake is fully cooked. (It should spring back with you touch it.) Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.

Frost and Decorate

Once cooled, frost with chocolate frosting. Roll the tacky frosting in a shallow, wide mouthed bowl full of chocolate sprinkles to coat. Create a depression in the center of the frosting with a knuckle. Set three chocolate M&M eggs in the depression and serve.
