Often I make things from scratch but sometimes my kids want a sweet treat and I use the easier options that I have around my house. I have for some time now wanted to try the new Duncan Hines Frosting creations to see what everyone was talking about. I had purchased some but had yet to get around to using it.
I don’t like to just make plain Vanilla or Chocolate all of the time and will look for things around the house to spruce a plain mix up. This time inspired by my 9 year old and some friends who have been using bacon in various recipes and we made Maple Bacon Cupcakes with Maple Frosting using box mix and the Frosting creations.. Take a look
Here is what I used!
1 Box of Yellow cake Mix
1/4 cup Veggie Oil
1 Cup Water
3/4 Cup Maple Syrup
1/2 Cup Bacon Crumbles
1 Tub Duncan Hines Frosting Creations
1/2 packet Caramel flavoring
1/2 Maple Syrup
Pre Heat Oven to 350
Follow the directions on the box adding all of the ingredients together and adding Maple Syrup and Bacon mix throughly
Empty Container of frosting in bowl and add half packet of Caramel Flavoring and Maple syrup… and Mix
Let Cupcakes Cool, Frost and Top with Bacon Crumbles!! Enjoy
