Peeps Easter Bunny Cupcakes
(Makes 24 cupcakes)
For the Cupcakes:
- 1 box Betty Crocker SuperMoist™ carrot cake mix
- 1 cup baking butter
- 1 cup of whole milk
- 3 eggs
- 2 teaspoons of Vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup shredded carrots
For the Frosting:
- 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
- 2 cups powdered sugar, not packed
- 1 to 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- Easter Sprinkles
- Peeps bunny candy
Preheat oven to 325°F. Meanwhile, in large bowl, beat cake mix, butter, milk, vanilla and eggs on low speed for 30 seconds. Increase to medium speed for 2 additional minutes. Pour into baking cups in cupcake pan, filling each about 2/3 full. Bake 17-22 minutes. Allow to cool completely.
Cream together the cream cheese and the butter in the bowl of a stand mixer. Add the powdered sugar one cup at a time. Add in the vanilla extract. Cut out a whole in the center of cupcake in which to place a Peep. You want the bottom 1/3 of the Peep to fit inside the cupcake so it will stay in place.
Pipe your frosting over cupcakes around the Peep candy using a star pastry tip for a “grass” effect.
Top with sprinkles and enjoy!
