Wow...can you believe how fast this summer has whizzed by?! Back to School season is here and I don't know about you, but my house is in full gear-up season. With all the busyness of getting ready, taking a quiet moment to bake up some quick and easy cupcakes is a great way to relax and get excited about school. This recipe is super easy using chocolate cake mix as the base. A few extra ingredients take this basic mix to super yummy in a heartbeat. Topped with the most adorable Sprinkle Pop "Back to School" sprinkles, you will have your school-bound kiddos eagerly awaiting their classroom before the school bell rings!
