St, Patrick's Day Cupcakes

I found this recipe from the Taste of Home Holiday Irish Food & Fun book. They sounded and good and thought perfect for St. Patty's Day.

They are very easy to make and really yummy with our without the frosting (of course, the frosting is delicious by itself, too!).


1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup sugar
1 pkg (3.4 oz) instant pistachio pudding mix
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup cream cheese frosting (or more)
green sprinkles and/or chocolate jimmies


In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, pudding mix, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, combine the eggs, milk, oil and vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients until combined. Fold in chocolate chips.

Fill paper lined muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake at 375 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely. Frost and decorate as desired.

Yield: 1 1/2 dozen
