Carnival Cupcakes


1 package yellow cake mix
1 package vanilla pudding mix
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
1/3 cup oil
4 eggs
1 1/4 cup mini M&Ms
1 container of frosting


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line two 12-cup muffin pans and one 6-cup pan with cupcake paper liners.

  2. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, pudding mix, flour, milk, oil and eggs. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then beat on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping down sides of bowl once or twice with a rubber spatula. Quickly fold in 2/3 cup M&M’s and divide among muffin cups, filling just slightly more than half full. Sprinkle a few more candies on top of each.

  3. Bake 18 to 20 minutes, until cupcakes are fully risen and golden brown on top. Remove and let cool.

  4. Frost each cupcake with a little tablespoon frosting. Sprinkle remaining M&M’s on top.
