Watermelon Cupcakes & Weekend Potluck #30

Welcome to Weekend Potluck!  There will be no Flashback Friday today, because I have a BRAND NEW recipe to share instead…..

The Watermelon Cupcakes from Avery’s Birthday party that I talked about yesterday!!!!!  

  I found these Cupcakes at one of our past Weekend Potlucks. This delicious recipe comes from food genius, Aimee from Shugary Sweets!

  Watermelon Cupcakes

from Shugary Sweets

For the Cupcake:

  • 1 box (18.25oz) white cake mix
  • 1 box (3oz) lime Jello (not sugar free)
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 1/4 cup water

For the Topping:

  • 8oz white chocolate, melted
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Koolaid powdered mix (watermelon flavor)
  • 3-4 Tbsp watermelon puree (see note below) OR milk
  • 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
Instructions
  For the cake, add cake mix, jello, egg whites, oil and water in a mixing bowl. Beat 2 minutes until blended. Fill cupcake liners 1/2 full and bake in a 350 degree oven for 15-18 minutes. Do not overbake. Allow to cool completely.
 When cooled, spread melted white chocolate over top of each cupcake. While that sets, begin your frosting.
  To make watermelon puree, blend about 1/2 cup of fresh watermelon in a blender until smooth. If you want to substitute milk, that will work too, but fresh watermelon makes is AMAAAZING!
In mixer, beat butter with powdered sugar, Koolaid mix and watermelon puree (or milk). Beat for about 3-5 minutes until fluffy and smooth. Pipe frosting on each cupcake and immediately sprinkle with chocolate chips.
ENJOY!
