Happy Easter!!

Hello!

We didn’t have a Friday Night Dinner this week due to it being Easter weekend, but I do have a pretty fabulous cupcake recipe to share with you that would be perfect for some Easter fun!

Easter Egg Nests: 

Ingredients:

Cupcakes: 

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Frosting: 

  • 10 oz. chocolate, flaked
  • 2 tbsp. heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 54 mini chocolate eggs (I like to use Cadbury’s mini eggs)

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place 18 paper baking cups in muffin pans. Combine all the cupcake ingredients in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer until smooth and pale, about 2 to 3 minutes. Spoon the batter into the cups. 
  2. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove pans from the oven and cool for 5 minutes. Then remove the cupcakes and cool on a rack.
  3. To make the frosting, put the chocolate and cream in a small saucepan over a low heat. Stir gently until combined. Remove from the heat and stir until the mixture is smooth. Swirl onto the cooled cupcakes. Top with shards of chocolate and place 3 mini eggs on top.
