Few drops blue food coloring
3 oz. BAKER’S Semi-Sweet Chocolate

Let’s Make It

2 – Spoon 1 Tbsp. untinted batter into each of 24 paper-lined muffin cups; top each with 2 tsp. colored batter. Cover with remaining untinted batter.
3 – Bake as directed on package for cupcakes. Cool in pans 10 min.; remove to wire racks. Cool completely.
4 – Meanwhile, microwave 2 cups frozen COOL WHIP and chocolate in microwaveable bowl on MEDIUM 2 to 2-1/2 min. or until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring after each minute. Cool 30 min.
5 – Frost cupcakes with chocolate mixture. Spoon reserved (thawed) COOL WHIP into small resealable plastic bag. Snip off tiny piece from one bottom corner of bag; use to pipe COOL WHIP into question marks on tops of cupcakes.

Kitchen Tips

  1. Yay! More RDR for me to read! No more babies here… ever… But yay for cupcakes!

    I’ve never ridden with stormchasers, but I used to watch the show. And every rare once in a while, I see a stormchasing vehicle out and about. Storms are interesting, but you couldn’t catch me chasing one. I don’t even like to drive when it’s raining anymore. I can do it, but it’s not on my top 10 of things I enjoy.

      I’m with you. I’d rather stay in and watch on TV or through the window! That said, I did a fair bit when I was younger and stupider. Now I’d rather write about someone else’s “adventures.” 😉
