Are your kids as crazy for Lucky Charms cereal as most little ones are? Well then just wait until they see this over-the-top adorable Lucky Charms cupcakes recipe from Betty Crocker -- which turns their favorite breakfast cereal into a wonderfully scrumptious treat.
OMG. Why haven't I ever thought of upping the ante on regular old cupcakes before?
Since we were kids, we've all known that Lucky Charms are "magically delicious." And we can probably go ahead and multiply that description by about 100 as far as these precious desserts go.
Let's face it, we need all the luck we can get while trying to come up with fun and innovative goodies to bake for our kids, and if these cupcakes don't knock their socks off -- nothing will.
And did I mention they start with a boxed cake mix? (Less work in the kitchen is always a plus.)
