Of course, I have a two year old, so I have made my share of cupcakes. But these Joy Cupcakes just seemed like a new twist on the old favorite.
Thank you, Lisa, for the idea! It came at the perfect time, because tonight we were celebrating my father-in-law's birthday. It gave me an excuse to make these!
I started with a box of red velvet cupcake mix. I prepared it according to the directions, using cupcake liners. (I did this about 10 p.m. last night.) Then I prepared a bowl of chocolate instant pudding, again, according to the directions. Nothing fancy. Then I put the pudding in the fridge and let the cupcakes cool on the counter. (And then I went to bed!)
We met at Chik Fil A so the kids could play. The hilarious part is... my child got stuck on the TOP of the playground and I had to climb up there three times. I am sure there were people snickering at me down below!
