Copy Cat Kneader Easter Cupcakes

My daughter went to Kneader Bakery the other day. Since she is living on her own, she is very careful with her money, (funny how that works), and she spotted in their display case the most amazing looking cupcakes ever!

I was really proud of her, she resisted buying an Easter cupcake. However, she told her friends, “ya, my mom can make those”. So I did, and I should not have! “Why, you ask”? Because these copy cat Kneader Easter cupcakes are so delicious. Swirl that frosting on top, add some colored sugar, a pinch of grated chocolate and 3 Cadbury eggs!!!

i know that I have been making a few too many recipes with Cadbury eggs, but it is that time of the year when everywhere you go there is another bag of those bad boys. And when they are on sale, what is a person suppose to do.

Besides, my daughter asked me to make them and so I had to do that too! Now I have to find someone to take them to, because I do not want to eat all of them. Well, I do, but it would be better if I didn’t.

Time to make brownie points with a neighbor. Ha ha. I hope that you enjoy this delicious recipe as much as we did, and I hope that you have a very Happy Easter!!!
