Fierce Cupcake Challenge, including a Peeps vs. Bunnies war, I found myself going back to it just to have another giggle.
(Go ahead. I'll be here when you get back. It's worth it, trust me!)
I like to make treats for my student workers and have been on a cupcake kick this year, so this seemed perfect. When I was running out of steam Tuesday night I started thinking about just making a normal buttercream for the top, but followed through on the recipe.
It starts with a normal enough chocolate cupcake, but then you make a cooked meringue that goes on top (making them look more like ice cream cones than cupcakes... this is where the hi-hat name comes from), then they are dipped in chocolate, and topped by sprinkles. And Peeps, in my situation.
The end result is a cupcake sweeter than you would believe - the meringue is more like a marshmallow, and I'm pretty sure everyone who ate one left for Easter Break on a huge sugar high.
I was going to wait until Easter and post something about an amazing masterpiece that I was sure I would put together - but I am just not in a baking mood tonight, so this might be it!
