Prep Time: 35 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 55 minutes

Yield: 24


  • 1 box Betty Crocker Super Moist Rainbow Chip Cake mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup mini M&Ms
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup rainbow sprinkles, divided
  • 1 16 ounce container white frosting


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 24 muffin cups.
  2. cupcake liners in baking pan

  9. Core the cupcakes with either a knife or a cupcake corer. Leave 1/2-inch border. Reserve the core. You can use a knife, or a special corer sold for this purpose.

  13. Replace the core. You may have to cut in half so it fits in. I found if I just pressed it down it fit in. If it sticks out a little at the top, do not worry. The frosting will cover it up.
  14. plug returned to cupcake

  15. Frost the cupcakes. Sprinkle the cupcakes with the remaining 1/4 cup of rainbow sprinkles.
