Why I Love This Recipe

Here's another cupcake recipe involving soda, but this time root beer. They're said to be reminiscent of root beer floats. Yum! Recipe originally from Land O' Lakes butter. :-)


Ingredients You'll Need

Cupcake Ingredients:
1 to 1 1/4 cups root beer
1/2 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened
1 (18.25-ounce) package butter recipe yellow cake mix with pudding
3 large eggs
1/3 cup crushed root beer-flavored candies

Frosting Ingredients:

Frosting Ingredients:
3 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened*
3 to 4 tablespoons milk

Topping Ingredients:
Crushed root beer-flavored candies, if desired


Directions

Heat oven to 350°F.


Use the amount of root beer (1 to 1 1/4 cups) as indicted for water on cake mix.


Combine root beer, 1/2 cup butter, cake mix and eggs in large mixer bowl. Beat at low speed until moistened. Increase speed to medium. Beat until well mixed. Stir in crushed candies by hand.


Spoon scant 1/4 cup batter into each paper-lined muffin cup. Bake for 23 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 2 to 3 minutes; remove from pan. Cool completely.


Meanwhile, combine powdered sugar and 1/4 cup butter in small mixer bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often and gradually adding enough milk for desired spreading consistency. Frost cooled cupcakes. Garnish with additional crushed root beer-flavored candies, if desired.


Makes 2 dozen cupcakes.


Tip: Be sure to use the specific weight cake mix as directed above to ensure success of this recipe.


Tip: To crush candies, place in heavy resealable plastic food bag. Crush with hammer or rolling pin on cutting board. Candies can also be crushed in small food processor or blender
