Creme Egg Cupcakes

So there is no line-up for this recipe because I wasn't quite sure where I was going with it...I did have a little bit of a plan in mind but not 100% sure.

I started by making my ultimate favorite chocolate cupcake recipe that was passed down from my G-ma!  It is on the very first page of my recipe book...although I have made it so many times I could probably do it from recall!
 (the amounts are written at the bottom)...

Cream together your marg and sugar, and then add the cocoa.

Apparently I skipped pictures for a few steps...they are easy though so you don't really need a picture...well it is all easy but I like the pics!  Okay back to business...
add your boiling water and mix...add your flour and mix.  Make your sour milk and add will look odd for a bit but just keep mixing and it will become a perfect chocolate batter!

Add your baking soda and mix.  Then add your eggs & vanilla and mix. 
 PERFECT!!!  This is where I usually stop for cupcake batter...

but  NOT today! I added a broken up chocolate easter bunny!

RANDOM SIDE NOTE: I found a pack of 500 white cupcake liners at the Great Canadian Wholesale for $2.99!!!! I was crazy pumped!  They also had a pan that would bake 24 cupcakes at once...I might have to make a trip back for it!

Back on track...ready to go into the 350 degree oven.

18 minutes later :)

Now onto the icing...I made butter icing according to the back of the icing sugar package.

Cut open a bags worth of mini creme eggs

Scooped out their insides

 Added it to the icing

and mixed...yummy!!!

Ice your cupcakes and add some of the "egg shell" to the top!  I am so happy with how these turned out!
