Expert Tips

If only one 12-cup muffin pan is available, refrigerate the remaining batter while baking the first 12 cupcakes.

For a quick and fluffy frosting, stir a little caramel topping into whipped topping. Decorate with chopped peanuts or miniature chocolate chips.

Stir 1/4 cup miniature chocolate chips into the cupcake batter for chocolate chip cupcakes. Stir a drop or two of mint extract into your favorite frosting.

No time to frost? Simply dust these sweet treats with baking cocoa. Or sprinkle with chocolate chips before baking.
