olate is one of my love languages. I also am pretty darn crazy about sprinkles. I decided to do a mash up and create something festive and fun using both and came up with these amazing chocolate unicorn sprinkle cupcakes. They are so easy to make and so darling to serve. I got the sprinkles as a gift from Wilton at the SNAP Conference and am excited to share this fun way to put them to great use. While Wilton sponsored the post with the sprinkle gift, the ideas and opinions are my own.
The most important rick to these magical cupcakes is to use the right cupcake pan. This KING-Size Muffin pan from Wilton is my fave. I have had it for years and break it our for times when our treats need to be super special.
A standard box cake mix makes 5 in this pan when you fill the holes up three quarters of the way.
While the cupcakes are baking, it is a great time to make your mix of sprinkles. I used 6 different ones from Wilton and added them to an old mix that I had a little of left over.
Once the cupcakes are baked and cooled. You can work with them. Cut off the tops then remove a core in the center of each cupcake to create the chamber for the sprinkles. Pour in the sprinkles to fill the cavity.
Put the top back on and frost with white. Add a unicorn horn made from white fondant. Ta Da!
When you cut it open, the sprinkles all fall out. SURPRISE!

Cheers to Chocolate, Sprinkles and Unicorns!
