Shamrock Pretzel Cupcakes
1 box Pillsbury™ Moist Supreme® White Cake Mix, or your favorite variety
Green food coloring
Additional ingredients to prepare cake mix per package instructions
1 tub Pillsbury™ Creamy Supreme® White Frosting, or your favorite variety
1 package dark green candy melts
2 tbsp shortening
Cake pop sticks
1 package mini pretzels
PREPARE cake mix according to package instructions using water, oil and egg whites, adding green food coloring to reach desired color. Cool completely.
Melt dark green candy melts in the microwave according to package instructions. Arrange three pretzels and the cake pop stick to form a shamrock. Use a small amount of candy melt to attach together, then set aside to let cool. Repeat, re-melting the candy melts as necessary throughout the process.
When the pretzels are secured on the sticks, add 2 tbsp shortening to the remaining candy melts and re-melt in the microwave. Spoon candy melt mixture over exposed pretzels, avoiding the already set candy (this could cause it to melt and fall apart). Let excess drip, then place on parchment paper to set. Repeat with remaining shamrocks.
Frost cupcakes however you’d like (we used a 1M piping tip), then insert shamrock topper.
