Excellent!

I really liked this one. I have been reviewing all kinds of crafts and recipes to pick one for my Introduction to Speech class (a "How To" demo.). I believe this would be somewhat simple and not so messy. The 'times' are an important motivating factor as well and we have that, with Easter being early this year. I thought this recipe was the best/prettier also. I went to other sites as well. I like/LOVE Butterfingers so maybe that had something to do with it.

    Every Bunny's Favorite!!

    Rayanna Spalding from RICHMOND, IN

    One of those 'now why didn't I think of that?!' recipes! The kids had a grand time decorating the cupcakes!! We used sugar that we dyed green instead of coconut, and they were still fabulous looking! The kids took such delight in sharing the treats with their friends. Even the Easter Bunny took one with him when he left our house!!

    Sandie Boyd from NEW BERLIN, WI

    These were so good adults and kids gobbled them up. Plus after a couple days in the frig. they tasted even better! They were really quick and easy to make and my sons loved decorating them.

    very good

    Cara Green from LAWRENCE, MA

    I made these cupcakes for my son's school. They were very easy and looked great. The teachers and staff loved them. The kids(5yrs old), did not like the cream cheese frosting. I think the next time I make them for children, I'll use regular vanilla frosting.

    Easter Brownie Cupcakes

    Sandy Dugas from BUFORD, GA

    Brownies are such a hit with my family, so I had to try these. I wanted to make them to see how they turned out before Easter. They are so easy to make, and everyone loved them. I will make these for Easter and have more then one dessert. Making a dessert like this will be great with the kids.

    Very easy and very yummy. My nephews and nieces just loved making and eating them. The candy bar really brought up the flavor of the cupcakes. Will definitely make again for Easter!
