Dark, rich, chocolate cupcakes topped with buttery chocolate frosting make for the most decadent Robins’ Nest Cupcakes. Plus they’re so easy to make. They are the perfect spring or Easter treat!
See those chocolate eggs topping these Robins’ Nest Cupcakes? Well, I have an irrational love for these Cadbury Mini- Eggs. They’re filled with some pretty good milk chocolate, but even more than the flavor, I love how simple and beautiful they look. The light pastel eggs are speckled with droplets of darker color, just like real robins’ eggs.
To make these Robins’ Nest Cupcakes even easier, you can use your favorite box mix and pre-made frosting. But the recipe I used for the cupcakes is so simple that you don’t even need a mixer!
My Robins’ Nest Cupcakes are a little unique when it comes to how I chose to create a nest-like texture with my frosting. Most bakers like to use toasted coconut, but instead, I chose chocolate jimmies. They give the nests some texture and dimension, and, more importantly, my family prefers the jimmies over the coconut 🙂
