STEP 4: Take out your cupcake paper cups and fill them with the mixture 2/3 to the top. Place them onto a  baking pan and insert into the oven at 350F (180 degrees C). Leave them in the oven for 20-25 min until golden brown. After taking them out, let them cool for 20 min before decorating.

STEP 5: These are all ready to go. You can leave them like this or decorate them. I asked my younger sister for help with the decorating process. I think she did a great job and it was loads of fun.

We used “Nutella” to decorate these treats as well as some sprinkles. We left some cupcakes/muffins plain since were not looking forward to a potential sugar rush and crash in the morning.
