Cadbury Eggs Dessert Instructions

Cook for about 15 minutes before testing with a toothpick for doneness. Cupcakes may need a few more minutes, but it's okay for them to be a little undercooked. They will cook more as they sit, and the mini Cadburys will be softer with less oven time. When time for eating, part of the Cadbury will have melted into cupcake, while part may be chewy. Either way, biting into this special cupcake is a tasty surprise.

Tasks for Children to Help:

  • unwrap mini Cadbury eggs
  • stir up cake batter
  • use mixer for cake batter
  • place baking cups into muffin pan
  • fill baking cups with cake batter
  • insert mini Cadbury eggs into batter
  • cover Cadbury eggs with more cake batter
  • spread frosting on cooled cupcakes
  • EAT cupcakes!
