what you need:

1 batch of your favorite vanilla cupcake mix (this one is good)

1 batch of your favorite vanilla frosting (i love this one)

Mini chocolate chips

Red food coloring

Green food coloring

what you do:

Once your cupcake batter is made, add some red food dye and stir until it is the desired color.

Stir in some mini chocolate chips (I used probably about 1/2 cup) and fill cupcake tins 3/4 full.

Bake according to directions, allow to cool completely.

Stir some green food coloring into the frosting. Pipe it onto the cupcakes or frost with a knife.

enjoy! so cute and perfect for summer! :)
