Tips and Suggestions
TIP: For best results, spread "cupcakes" with frosting as you need them. Wrap unfrosted cupcakes securely; store in cool, dry place until ready to frost and serve.
Mini "Cupcakes": Prepare as directed, using lightly greased miniature muffin pans and pressing about 1/4 cup of the cereal mixture into each cup. Makes about 4 doz. or 24 servings, two mini cupcakes each.
Substitute: Prepare as directed, using Post Cocoa Pebbles Cereal.
Note: Microwave ovens vary. Cooking times are approximate.
