Lucky Charm Filled St. Patrick’s Day Cupcakes

1. Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick cupcake pans).  Place bakeable cupcake wrappers into the muffin tin.   (Note: 1 Box of Betty Crocker Cake Mix makes 24 cupcakes.)
2. Make cake batter as directed on box.  Pour batter into muffin wrappers; until about 2/3 full. Bake about 20 minutes or until cupcakes spring back when touched in center.  Let the muffins cool in their tins for 15 minutes.  Transfer muffins to a cooling rack to completely cool down to room temperature (at least 30 minutes) to avoid Lucky Charms marshmallows melting inside. 
3. Using serrated knife, cut out a small hole in the center of each cupcake, about 1 inch deep. (Save the center part to use for later use.)  Fill each cupcake with approx. 1 tablespoon of Lucky Charms (and rainbow sprinkles if desired). Use the center cupcake cutout to patch the bottom so that the cupcake appears uncut.

4. Mix frosting & the desired amount of green food coloring in a bowl until the frosting appears evenly green.  Frost the cupcake with a spatula or a decorating bag.  Top the cupcakes with more Lucky Charms, sprinkles or other decor!

5. Store cupcakes at room temperature with loosely covered with plastic wrap.
