Mocha Cupcakes

I seem to have lost my "making of" cupcakes pictures! My memory card is on the fritz :( Time for a new one! Either way, they are really EASY! And cute for Easter, or every Tuesday. ha I use Betty Crocker, she is my staple for cupcakes. To that add 1 cup of buttermilk, 4 eggs, and the same amount of oil on the box, normally 1/2 cup I think. Fill your muffin tins, and bake :)
Ice, and add some eggs to the top! These are peanut M&M's, but Mini Eggs, Robins Eggs, any kind of chocolate eggs work!

Mocha icing : Sooo Good! Easy Too! You need:

- 1/2 cup softened butter (I used salted)

- 1/4 cup cocoa,

- 3 to 4 cups of icing sugar,

- 2 tsp instant coffee, disolved in 1/4 cup hot water

-1 tsp vanilla

Beat butter and cocoa, until combined. Add your 2 tsp of coffee, disolved in hot water, then vanilla, and icing sugar 1 cup at a time. Mix on high, & scrape the sides. Depending on what consistency and sweetness you want your icing, vary the icing sugar.

Sherman WILL be back tomorrow :)
