Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cupcakes

Yes, you read right: Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cupcakes. I’m part of this fabulous website Pinterest. It’s a virtue pinboard where you can pretty much find any kind of recipe, how to, craft, party idea, even invitation ideas. I L-O-V-E it. All of my recipes have come from here along with various cook books. Recently I found this recipe.

Your Cup of Cake is by far one of the best cupcake websites out there. I found this Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cupcake recipe along with many others, but this is one that I’m most likely going to try. Check out the recipe below.
