Get ready, because Mint Chocolate Hostess Cupcakes are here! Growing up, I would always jump with joy whenever an original Hostess cupcake would find its way into my lunch box. There's nothing like a tiny frosted chocolate cake filled with a cream filling and topped with tiny swirls of white icing. Now, three more tasty limited-edition flavors are hitting the stores just in time for spring.
New Limited Edition Hostess Mint Chocolate Cupcakes
Perfect for St. Patrick's Day, the new limited-time snack cake features Hostess chocolate cupcakes filled with mint green frosting creamy filling and a tasty mint icing squiggle on top. Knowing how popular mint chocolate is, these Mint Chocolate Hostess Cupcakes will probably sell out fast!
Along with the minty treat, Hostess Brands also released a new Strawberry Cupcake, which features a strawberry cake, filled with creamy vanilla creme and topped with strawberry icing. It's the perfect treat for spring and Valentine's Day.
Finally, the last treat in the line-up is brand-new Llama cupcakes. It looks like unicorns are out and llamas are in! These limited edition cakes are dotted with rainbow sprinkles and topped with sweet purple icing and sprinkles. You don't need to become another year older to celebrate with these tasty cakes!
How to Make Hostess Cupcakes at Home
While it's a little more work than going to the store and picking up a box, making your own Hostess Cupcakes at home is a fun and nostalgic project. This recipe features a dark chocolate cupcake filled with a marshmallow creme filling (yum!) topped with a creamy ganache frosting.
Bake the cupcakes and let them cool. Prepare the marshmallow filling by combining marshmallow creme, butter, and powdered sugar, and fill the cooled cakes using a cookie cutter to remove a small portion of the cake. Fill, and replace the top of the cake and frost with the chocolate ganache. Decorate with white icing and serve.
