Necco Conversation Hearts Cupcakes

Necco Conversation Hearts CupcakesTo us, cupcakes are the epitome of love. They’re sweet, delicious, and put a smile on our lips. It’s no wonder we tend to go a little cupcake-happy here in the Blair Candy offices during Valentine’s Day, and this year we’re whipping up Necco Conversation Hearts Cupcakes! They’re a take on your classic cupcake, but with a fun flavor, brightly colored frosting, and a Necco Conversation Heart on top. Thanks to the GrinAndBakeIt.com blog for sharing this so-sweet (and well, a little tart) recipe with us!

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Mix all of the ingredients in an electric mixer on low for 30 seconds, and then beat on high for two minutes. Fill your cupcake cups or pans about 2/3 the way full. Bake according to the directions on the white cake mix box.

Combine cream cheese and butter in a large mixing bowl. Use an electric mixer to beat on low speed for about 30 seconds, until fluffy. Then, add sugar, lemonade concentrate, squeeze of lemon, and the lemon zest. Beat on low speed until the sugar is properly worked in, typically around 1 minute, and then beat on medium speed until fluffy, about 1 more minute.

Once the cupcakes are cool, frost each cupcake. Place a Necco Conversation Heart on each cupcake, and prepare to wow the crowd.
