Ingredients

  • 1 box Betty Crocker™ Super Moist™ white cake mix
  • Water, vegetable oil and egg whites called for on cake mix box
  • 2 oz semisweet baking chocolate, melted, cooled
  • 1/4 teaspoon golden yellow soft gel paste food color
  • 1/4 teaspoon orange soft gel paste food color

    Divide batter evenly among 3 medium bowls. Stir melted chocolate into 1 bowl. Stir yellow food color into second bowl. Stir orange food color into third bowl. Starting with chocolate batter, dollop 1 tablespoon of each color batter into each muffin top cup. (Cover and refrigerate remaining batter until ready to bake; cool pan 15 minutes before reusing.)

    Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown around edges. Cool 5 minutes; remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely. Repeat with remaining batter to make additional 12 muffin tops.
