Cute Yellow Chicky Surprise Cupcakes

Cute Yellow Chicky Surprise Cupcakes

Sometimes I just want the kids to get involved in the kitchen with me.  During Easter is a great time.  We all gather around the kitchen table.  Color and decorate boiled eggs.  It’s tradition with my family.  The kids get a kick out of decorating the eggs.  I found this easy recipe.  I call them Cute Yellow Chicky Surprise Cupcakes.  It is so simple.

My kids are gonna enjoy helping me fill the holes with candies and frosting the cupcakes.  We will probably have a big mess in the kitchen.  Who cares!  It’s all about making childhood memories so when they grow up they will remember what fun we had.
