These are the cupcakes that I made for my boys and their friends after a fun day of Geocaching. They have a fun “treasure” inside!

Easy Gluten-Free Cupcake Recipe
( You can use a boxed cake or make this from-scratch version. Try it! It’s super easy! )
Preheat Oven to 375
2 cups of Cup for Cup Gluten Free Flour ( or regular flour)
3/4 cup milk of choice
1 T Baking powder
3/4 t salt
1 t vanilla
1 cup of sugar ( you can also use Swerve) or you can also use 3/4 cup honey
1/2 cup applesauce, oil, or butter
Divide the batter in half, scoop one half of the batter into your cupcake liners.
For the buried treasure
chocolate chips, chocolate kisses, or peanut butter cups
Put chocolate in the center of the batter for each cupcake and top with remaining batter.
For the Frosting
I highly suggest NOT using a premade frosting if you can avoid it because they are so full of nasty ingredients and homemade frosting tastes better and is very easy to make. If you simply don’t have the time – here are a couple cleaner brands: Wholesome!, Miss Jones.

Check them around 25 minutes – if needed bake longer
Let them cool and frost. For extra fun, I stuck a pirate flag in each cupcake.
