Description

Give your favorite vanilla cupcakes a makeover with a cookie bottom, granola center, chocolate glaze and granola sprinkles.

Ingredients

  • 12 whole Cupcakes, Batter For (use Your Favorite Recipe Or A Box Mix)
  • 12 whole Small Round Cookies (that Will Fit In The Bottom Of A Cupcake Liner)
  • 6 whole Granola Bars/Clusters
  • 3 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Margarine
  • 1 cup Icing Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Milk
  • ¼ teaspoons Vanilla

Preparation

1. Preheat oven according to directions for your cupcakes. Prepare cupcake batter. Line a cupcake tray with paper liners. Place one cookie at the bottom of each liner. Fill liners to 1/2 or 2/3 mark with cupcake batter and bake as long as recipe requires (usually around 15-20 minutes).

2. When done remove the pan from the oven and let cupcakes cool fully. Using a small knife (I like to use an upside down, medium-sized icing tip) cut a hole in the top center of the cupcakes. Pull apart a granola cluster and put it into the hole. Don’t press it in too tight. Use the very top of the cut-out part to close the cupcake top again.

3. For the chocolate glaze, melt cocoa powder and margarine in a small saucepan on medium heat. Once melted, set aside to cool. In a bowl stir together icing sugar, milk and vanilla. Mix in the cocoa mixture. Dip the top of the cupcakes in glaze or spoon glaze over the cupcakes. Sprinkle with a few remaining granola bits.
