Cadbury Cupcakes From Scratch
Cadbury Cupcakes: Rich chocolate cupcakes with creamy buttercream frosting decorated to look like a Cadbury Egg. The easiest and yummiest Easter Cupcake around!
Cadbury Eggs are something I avoided for so many years. My family told me I wouldn’t like them. Plus I though they had real eggs inside (EW!). A few years ago I tried them, and LOVED them. Now I’m making up for lost time!
They are both filled with and topped with Cadbury Eggs because you can can never have enough! Seeing this recipe and it’s not near Easter? STOP don’t just pin this post for later. Try it with my Copycat Cadbury Eggs recipe.
I even decorated them to resemble a Cadbury egg, but that’s optional. They’d still taste great with regular buttercream (or dare I say it chocolate?!).
