If you procrastinate like me…

…then maybe you still need something simple and Easter-y for your get together. Or maybe just for a quick cake craving. I will not lie. Yesterday, I spent the morning making dessert for dinner with my family. Also probably the reason why I am posting an Easter treat the day before Easter.

Oh well.

For my tardiness I bring you a treat that is easy to whip up if you are short on time, or is easy to fancy up if you have a bit more; mini cupcakes! Yay!

Nearly everyone loves cupcakes, especially ones filled with chocolate chips, and making them mini amps up the cute factor, as well as speediness. These puppies bake up ( an cool!) likety-split. Top them off with your favorite icing, and you are good as gold.

Chocolate Chip Mini-Cupcakes

-makes about 48 mini cupcakes

  • 1 c sugar
  • 1/2 c butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 c all purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 c mini chocolate chips
  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line your mini muffin pans with liners.
  2. Sift together your dry ingredients and set aside.
  3. Cream your butter and sugar together, until nice and fluffy.
  4. Add your eggs in, one at a time, mixing well after each.
  5. Slowly mix in the flour mixture, just until combined.
  6. Gradually add the milk and mix until you get a smooth batter.
  7. Fold in your chocolate chips.
  8. Fill up the cups 2/3 – 3/4 full, and pop them in the oven for 7-10 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  9. Let them cool and top them off with your favorite icing!

I had fun making these into cute little chickies and nests, however, if you don’t have the time to invest, they look aand taste just as good with a quick swirl of icing on top!

Happy Easter!
