Do you love to make a special dessert for spring and Easter? Spring is such a fun time of year, and I love all the colors of that wonderful season. I can’t wait to share these darling bunny cupcakes with my kiddos in a couple of weeks. They are going to love them!
Here’s how to make them:
Chocolate Cupcake Recipe
• 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
• 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
• 2 teaspoons baking powder
• 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
• 1/8 teaspoon salt
• 3 tablespoons butter, softened
• 1 1/2 cups white sugar
• 2 eggs
• 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a muffin pan with paper or foil liners.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a
time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the vanilla. Add the flour mixture alternately
with the milk; beat well. Fill the muffin cups 3/4 full.
Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake
comes out clean. Frost with your favorite frosting when cool.

My favorite part about these cupcakes is the green coconut for grass. Brilliant idea and makes it that much cuter! Thanks for linking up with Delicious Dishes Recipe Party!
