Malted Milk Candy Easter Egg cupcakes

DSC_7718

Another easy cupcake idea for Easter!! I’ve made these cupcakes with a matching cake for my mom but with the original chocolate coated malted milk candies.  These are her favourite candy treats.  A few years ago she came for Easter and I came up with these for her.   If you are a malted milk candy lover, you will love these cupcakes.   Easter Malted Milk Candy Cupcakes….Yum!

Ingredients:

  • Vanilla Cake Recipe or Boxed Vanilla Cake mix
  • Buttercream Icing
  • Green food color
  • 1.5 cups chopped Malted Milk Candies  (Robin Eggs) plus more for decorating the cupcakes.
  • Cupcake liners
  • Icing bag and large tip of your choosing.  (I used a 1M tip)

Pre-heat the oven 330°

DSC_7435You can use a rolling-pin to break the malted candies into small pieces

DSC_7442You can also use a sharp knife to chop the candies into small pieces for the batter.DSC_7443Add the chopped candies to the batter and gently stir to combine.

DSC_7448Scoop the batter into the prepared cupcake liners set in the baking tins.  Fill to 3/4 full and place into the preheated 330° oven and bake for 17-18 minutes or until light golden tops

DSC_7472Remove from the oven and place on a cooling rack and let cool.  Once cool top with Buttercream icing that is tinted to the color of your choice.  I chose green as it reminded me of the grass that everyone in Halifax and the East Coast is wanting to see during Easter break.  You can use a 1M star tip to pipe a small amount of icing on the cupcake with a swirl.  Check out my video to use my rosette technique.  Or use a wilton #233 tip for icing that looks like grass.  Top with a few of the Easter Malted milk candies (Robin Eggs).DSC_7708
