One of the beloved traditions associated with Easter is making festive treats. From classic favorites like hot cross buns to creative new recipes like our adorable carrot patch cupcakes, these festive treats add extra joy and sweetness to this special holiday.


The tradition of making festive treats during Easter has been around for centuries. In ancient times, people would bake bread in the shape of lambs as a symbol of sacrifice and redemption. Over time, more elaborate desserts were added to the mix, such as chocolate eggs and bunny-shaped cakes.


Carrot Patch Cupcakes are a fun and festive treat that are perfect for Easter celebrations. These cupcakes are not only delicious, but they also add a touch of whimsy to any dessert table. The best part? They are easy to make and require minimal ingredients.


Prep Time: 20 min

Bake Time: 20 min

Makes: 12 cupcakes


Ingredients:


1 box of chocolate cake mix, plus the ingredients from the box instructions (water, vegetable oil, eggs)

1 cup unsalted butter, softened

3 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1/2 cup cocoa powder

3 tbsp. heavy cream

Pinch of salt

2 tsp. vanilla extract

20 Oreo cookies, creme removed

12 fresh strawberries

12 oz. orange candy melts










Directions:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit, and line a muffin tin with cupcake liners.

In a large mixing bowl, prepare the chocolate cupcakes, according to box directions, and bake.

Allow the cupcakes to cool completely.

To make the "carrots," melt the candy melts by microwaving on 20 second intervals, stirring well in between, until melted.

Line a tray or plate with parchment or wax paper, and set aside.

Rinse the strawberries and dry them well.

Dip each strawberry into the candy melts, and swirl them around to coat.

Let the excess candy drip off, and set the strawberries onto the parchment paper to allow the candy to set.

If desired, after the first layer of candy has set on the strawberries, you can pour any extra melted candy into a small plastic storage bag, snip off the tip of one corner, and drizzle extra candy across the strawberries.

Once all of the strawberries are dipped, prepare the frosting.

In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened butter until smooth.

Add the heavy cream, salt and vanilla, and mix to combine.

Slowly add the powdered sugar and cocoa powder, mixing well with each addition until it is all well combined and frosting has formed.

If the frosting is too stiff, add just a bit of heavy cream, or if the frosting isn't stiff enough to pipe onto the cakes you can add powdered sugar to get the perfect consistency.

For the oreo dirt topping, toss the oreo cookies into your food processor, and blitz, or simply crush the oreos with a rolling pin or something similar.

Sprinkle the crushed oreos over each cupcakes, and then top with a strawberry "carrot."


If you want to get really creative, you can also try making edible flowers out of frosting or melted candy melts. These can be used as additional touches on top of the cupcakes or placed around the base of each cupcake for added detail.


No matter what type of decorations you choose to add, make sure they complement the overall theme and design of your carrot patch cupcakes. Keep in mind that less is often more when it comes to decorations, so try not to go overboard and overcrowd your cupcakes.



Incorporating mini chocolate eggs or fondant bunnies into your carrot patch cupcakes is a simple yet effective way to elevate these treats for Easter. These small details will surely impress your guests and add an extra dose of cuteness to your festive celebration.
