Were watching all the pre-game stuff and cooking. I ended up making the nacho cupcakes. It's funny because everything on the cupcake is sweet, even though the frosting really looks like nacho cheese! I almost dipped my salty chip in the frosting!

If you'd like to try it yourself you can find the Nacho recipe here at Sweet Simple Stuff.
I made the cupcakes from scratch with this easy recipe:

• 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
• 1 1/3 cups sugar
• 3 teaspoons baking powder
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 cup shortening
• 1 cup milk
• 1 teaspoon vanilla
• 2 large eggs
 
Easy Cupcake Recipe Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line cupcake pans with paper liners.
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl.  Add shortening, milk, and vanilla.  Beat for 1 minute on medium speed.  Scrape side of bowl with a spatula.
Add eggs to the mixture.  Beat for 1 minute on medium speed.  Scrape bowl again.  Beat on high speed for 1 minute 30 seconds until well mixed.
Spoon cupcake batter into paper liners until 1/2 to 2/3 full.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

I hope everyone is have a great Sunday! And if your watching the Superbowl I hope your having as much fun as us :)
