After creating my margarita Chex Mix, I was excited to combine snack time and dessert time and create Chex Mix cupcakes. To make Chex Mix cupcakes, use less flour than you normally would in a cupcake recipe and replace the missing flour with ground up Chex Mix (it works really well!). The result is a cupcake that takes on the flavor of whatever variety of Chex Mix you decide to use. You can even taste the Chex itself (although, the crunch will be gone).
Play up the taste of your Chex Mix by using a similarly flavored frosting. I used my newly created margarita buttercream frosting which I now can’t wait to try on my margarita cupcakes!
I periodically run a Facebook event called Cupcake Roulette. The winner gets paired with me and I develop a recipe or two inspired by something on their site. The winner of the most recent Cupcake Roulette was Jasey’s Crazy Daisy! Although she has a ton of fun recipes on her site, I was most excited by her Cinnamon Bun Chex Mix. It sounds phenomenal! She inspired me to try my own hand at a homemade Chex Mix recipe and these Chex Mix cupcakes.
