White cake batter

2 cups sugar-coated corn flakes cereal

6 tablespoons butter, melted

Can of sweetened condensed milk

Special Equipment

Foil cupcake wrappers

Muffin tin

Gallon-sized resealable plastic bag

Plastic wrap


1. Fill cupcake wrappers ΒΌ-full with cake batter. You want the baked cupcakes to not quite reach the top edge of the wrapper.

2. Bake cupcakes according to whatever batter is being used. Remove at the lower end of what your box mix recommends, or when a toothpick poked into a cupcake comes out clean.

3. In a gallon-sized bag, crush cereal into small crumbs.

4. In a large bowl, combine cereal crumbs and butter.

5. Using the small end of a spatula, poke holes in the cupcakes.

6. Fill holes with sweetened condensed milk.

7. Top cupcakes with cereal crumb mixture and pack down with a spoon, creating a uniform crust.

8. Individually wrap cupcakes in plastic wrap.

9. Chill cupcakes in cooler or refrigerator until ready to eat.
