There’s so much to love about Easter! You’ve got the Easter egg decorating, Easter desserts and my hubby’s favorite, the holiday ham! Now we can add these fun carrot patch Easter cupcakes to the list!

Carrot Patch Easter Cupcakes

What’s not to love.? You can’t go wrong with any dessert that includes a chocolate covered strawberry, right? Just start by mixing up the ingredients for your cupcakes and while they’re baking, make your “carrots”.

It’s super easy. Just melt your white chocolate, add orange gel food coloring and dip your strawberries.

Dipping strawberry in chocolate

Once you’ve dipped 12 strawberries, place them on parchment paper and put them in the refrigerator to set. By now, your cupcakes should be just about finished too. Once the cupcakes are cool, they’re ready for some chocolate frosting.

Chocolate icing

Sprinkle the cupcakes with “dirt” (a.k.a. chocolate graham cracker crumbs)

Now add your “carrots”.

Ingredients
 

Cupcake Topping

Instructions

  • Line a muffin tin with 12 cupcake liners
  • In a large bowl, mix flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Whisk eggs in a separate bowl. Add sugar, brown sugar, vegetable oil, vanilla and half & half and whisk until smooth.
  • Mix half of the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients. Add the remainder of the wet ingredients and stir just until mixed but don’t stir too much. The batter will be somewhat thin.
  • Spoon batter into cupcake liners, filling 3/4 full.
  • Bake at 350 for 18-22 minutes (until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean)
  • Remove from oven and cool completely.
  • In 10 second intervals, melt 4 squares of white chocolate almond bark in the microwave until completely melted.
  • Stir in orange food coloring gel. If chocolate gets too thick, add 2-6 drops of milk, microwave for 5 seconds and stir. If necessary, add a few more drops and repeat.
  • Dip strawberries in orange chocolate and spoon over any uncovered areas.
  • Set on parchment paper and refrigerate until chocolate hardens.
  • When cupcakes are completely cooled, top with chocolate frosting.
  • Spoon chocolate crumbs over cupcakes.
  • Place your "carrot" (orange strawberry) into the center of each of the Easter cupcakes.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve. Enjoy!

Notes

Keebler makes chocolate graham crackers but they’re not sold on Amazon, so I linked to something similar in case that’s where you’re purchasing your ingredients.
