So many wonderful cookies this time of year! It’s SO hard to limit the list of what to make!

There’s just something about a cookie wrapped around chocolate that is YUM beyond words. I’m not one for goopy fillings, but candy wrapped in a delicious homemade cookie is a whole different thing! How can you not love it?

This cookie uses your basic pantry ingredients, nothing special needed here except for a bag of candy. The good news is candy is on sale just about everywhere this time year! For these cookies, I used 3 Musketeers Hot Cocoa Minis, and they were really good!

Just in time for your Holiday baking!

Today’s post for Smiley Surprise Cupcakes is all about simplicity and great flavor! Not only are these cupcakes a great cupcake you can truly  make any day of the week, and they’re pretty darn tasty too!

I really believe sometimes it’s nice to be reminded of the simple things you CAN do! :)

Anyhoo, I call these cupcakes my Smiley Surprise Cupcakes for a few reasons. Let’ me explain…with these cupcakes the frosting is in the middle, I have doctored up a cake mix to include a few more ingredients that not only add calcium and protein, but also add GREAT flavor, and then of course there’s the bright smiley face added to the top. So you see, I just had to go with Smiley Surprise Cupcakes!

Some people like to make all their cakes/cupcakes and that’s fine. To each their own. I say so what if you start with a mix? You’re still taking the time to make a wonderful treat for your family, friends or co-workers! Just so you know, people of all ages enjoy these delicious cupcakes. Yes adults love them too!

Give these a try sometime soon!

What makes these cupcakes so special is…the way you can put a whole new spin on fun by adding a simple smiley face to the top of the cake! While inside the cake you have a wonderful frosting center waiting for you. :)

Make sure you top off the cake with a smiley face AFTER you have filled it with whatever frosting you’re using in the middle!!
