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

Directions (Cupcakes)

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.

Directions (Frosting)

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.
