Recipe Tips
  • Special Extra
    Cut each of 8 colored straws into thirds. Insert 1 straw piece into top of each decorated cupcake just before serving.
  • How to Crush the Candies
    Place candies in freezer-weight resealable plastic bag; fold bag in half.  Use mallet or bottom of small saucepan to crush the candies.  Or, you can instead crush the candies with a mortar and pestle.
  • Cake Mix
    If the cake mix package you are using calls for baking the cupcakes at a different temperature than the 350°F used to bake the cupcakes in this recipe, follow your package directions for baking the cupcakes except increase the baking time by 3 to 5 min. or until cupcakes are done.
