More About This Recipe

  • We love Double Rainbow recipes! What better way to create some rainbow magic than with something sweet like Double Rainbow Cupcakes! These delicious cupcakes not only have fun chocolate rainbow garnishes on top, your friends and family will be surprised to find a rainbow of colors inside, too! My kids loved these cupcakes so much that we made 72 of them to take to school and share. They were a huge hit and definitely something we’ll be making often. My favorite part is that the kids get to help mix, mash and drizzle the colored batter. There’s something for everyone to do and a great way to make some fun kitchen memories. Add food coloring to each bag of batter (one for each color of the rainbow), seal tightly and let your little helpers mix and mash until combined. Your friends and family will love these colorful rainbow cupcakes. Now if there were only a pot of gold included!
