What’s better than a vanilla cupcake? One with a surprise inside, of course! These homemade vanilla cupcakes (made from vanilla extract, eggs, flour, unsalted butter and sugar, among other things) are baked in festive cupcake liners. Once they have a chance to cool, the fun begins – slice out a hole in the center and pour in a batch of mini m&m’s, before replacing the top of the cupcake and frosting like normal.
