Eating a Cupcake at Each Meal?

Yum
So, how do you feel about cupcakes?
Or do I really need to ask?
I LOVE CUCAKES and when I heard about how to eat cupcakes for every meal, well...needless to say, my curiousity was peaked!

Buzz Feed showed how you could eat cupcakes for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  They have dozens of cupcake recipe ideas for each meal.  You see, cupcakes can be sweet or savory.  So check out Buzz Feed for some awesome ideas.

My favorite idea for breakfast was the cappucino cupcake from Serious Eats.

For lunch I was thinking Mac-n-Cheese Muffin Bites!


How's that for a quick lunch in cupcake form?  These Mac-n-Cheese Bites even have pepperoni, so fun!
And they are easy to make.  You will love the crunchy edges!  Here's how...

Ingredients:
1 package of macaroni and cheese (your choice)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup shredded low moisture part-skim mozzarella cheese
1/2 package of sliced pepperoni, cut into quarters
1 cup pizza sauce for dipping 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
Grease a 12 muffin tin.
Prepare macaroni and cheese as directed on the box, except stir in garlic powder in addition to the cheese powder.
Once prepared, remove from heat and stir in grated mozzarella cheese and pepperoni.
Spoon macaroni and cheese mixture evenly into prepared muffin tins.
Bake for 17-20 minutes or until golden brown around the edges. Cool for at least 5 minutes before removing from the muffin tins. Serve with pizza sauce for dipping.

And finally for dinner...Pepperoni Pizza Cupcakes!

Oh my, cheesy goodness.  Check out this earlier post for the complete, easy recipe.  A package of Grands biscuits, pepperoni, shredded mozzerella and some tomato sauce are all you need for this savory cupcake.

Eating a cupcake at each meal?
Totally possible, especially with the help of a cupcake pan.
Small bites that are yummy and fun too!

Celebrate the little things that make life sweet!
