I love cupcakes!

I love to have fun with food!

Guacamole Cupcakes

We are a football family … translation – the guys watch the game, I make the snacks.  I usually fill this bowl with real avocado guacamole … this year it may be filled with cupcakes.  Surprise :)

My favorite part of this cupcake is the chocolate covered Cheerio “olives”.  I made my “olives”, after hearing about the ones that Jacques Torres makes.  Someday I will go to his store and buy them!

The strawberry jam “salsa” tastes pretty good … son #3 loves this part!

Last year I made Nacho Cupcakes

I can’t believe that it took me so long to dream up guacamole cupcakes!

This is what you will need …

001

  1. Make the chips – Place 2 tortillas on a parchment lined baking sheet, spray with oil, sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar, cut into triangles, bake at 400°F for 10 minutes or until golden brown.

  2. Make olives – Mix melted chocolate and Cheerios, remove each Cheerio with tweezers and use a toothpick to poke the chocolate out of the center if necessary.  Lay on parchment and chill for a few minutes.chocolate cheerios004
  3. Make “guacamole” icing – color the icing yellow then mix in one drop of green coloring and continue adding green until you have reached a lovely guacamole color!  Fill disposable pastry bag (or a ziptop bag) with icing and cut off tip creating about a 1/2″ opening.
  4. Frost cupcakes … add a few chips … spoon on some jam … add my favorite “olives” :)   sweet guacamole chips

I do have an “olive” alternative – cut black licorice … the hubby likes black licorice, I am not a fan of it, but it is easy!

I can’t decide … would you serve margaritas with my guacamole and chips?  I do love your comments :)
