I would not say the Cocoa Puffs cupcakes were the best cupcakes I have ever made or eaten, but they were quite good.
The recipe called for two cups of crushed Cocoa Puffs. As a result, the batter had a cookie dough consistency. I dolloped the mix into the cupcake liner and even out the batter with my spoon.
I added instant pudding mix and sour cream to pull everything together for a moist, chocolatey cupcakes.
I made a brown sugar buttercream frosting and added whole Cocoa Puffs on top.
The final result was a dense chocolate cupcake. The frosting had a rich favor fro the butter a brown sugar, but with an interesting crunch from the Cocoa Puffs.
I decided to wait until my other nephew’s birthday next week to make the Trix cupcakes. There is only so much cold cereal I can bake with on any given week and I more than met my quota For this week.
