These look super complex to make, but really aren’t. Even your kids can help you make these, and they’ll have a blast doing it (and eating the candy.) The best part is you can use so many different things inside the cake itself. Make it chocolate, fruity, nutty, any flavors your like!

Ingredients Needed To Make Easter Surprise Cupcakes:

Surprise cupcakes with M&M's in them, cadbury eggs, and marshmallows.

How To Make Easter Surprise Cupcakes With Grass Icing:
  1. Bake and cool 24 cupcakes. Using the large end of your melon baller, scoop out (at the top) a portion of cupcake. You need the bottom of the cupcake intact, so if using an apple corer, only go a 1/3 of the way into the cupcake.
  2. Fill cupcake with desired filling, until it is level with the top of the cupcake.
  3. Add green food coloring to the white frosting, until desired color is reached.
  4. Pipe green frosting or frost cupcakes with green “grass” frosting. *Note: If you don’t own a #233 grass tip for piping your frosting, no worries!  Simply frost your cupcakes with the green frosting and find yourself a butter knife.  Laying the flat part of the knife against the frosting, pull up quickly and you should have little “tufts” of grass. Repeat until desired effect is achieved.
  5. Add 3 Cadbury eggs to the top as decoration. Or you could top your cupcakes with whatever you have hidden inside!
