I love cupcakes… but who doesn’t love cupcakes! In my world mini cupcakes are the way to go. I can eat one, or maybe two and not feel like I have fallen on track. The holidays are a great time to whip up some gingerbread cupcakes, however I can eat gingerbread recipes all year long. These little gems of a cupcake have a secret ingredient that make them stick out from the rest…Want to know what it is? Crushed up ginger snap cookies… um hello my new favorite cupcake. 🙂

  5. Fill a paper lined mini muffin tin ¾ way full, I find it best to give the paper cups a little spray to prevent cupcakes from sticking. Bake for approx. 15-17 minutes.
  6. Yields 36 mini cupcakes. Top with some Betty crocker vanilla icing. 1 cupcake is 2 smart points or 1 points plus , not incl icing, add another point for icing
