Spiced Brown Sugar Crunch Cupcake

Hi everyone! Here's my FAVORITE cupcake recipe. You are not going to believe how easy it is to make these cupcakes. The sweet crunchy topping is balanced out by the moist spice cake. Everyone will think you have gone above and beyond with this one, when in reality it was (pun alert) a piece of cake!

1 Box Duncan Hines Spice Cake Mix
1 Can Duncan Hines Vanilla Frosting
1/4 to 1/2 Cup Light Brown Sugar
Cupcake liners for pan
  1. Prepare the cupcakes according to directions on box;
    bake and cool completely
  2. Place the brown sugar in a shallow bowl or on a small plate
  3. Frost each cupcake with the vanilla frosting
  4. Lightly dip the top of each frosted cupcake into the brown sugar - coat lightly
  5. These are best served the following day as the sugar partially melts into the frosting and creates a delicate crust that melts in your mouth -- ENJOY!!
