Watermelon Cupcakes

I made these for the Chili Dog Dangle Dance that we had on June 9th for the Silver Fox Squares. They were so good and fairly easy to make. Not too mention that they are pretty cute if you don’t tip them over on the way.

For future reference, I will try to frost the cupcakes when they arrive at the location instead of frosting them and transporting them. I did find this idea on Pinterest and you can click here for the original recipe.

The kids can help with this one and make it a bit more fun.

Watermelon Cupcakes

Watermelon Cupcakes


  • 1 box white cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/3 c. water
  • 1 small box of watermelon jello
  • red or pink food coloring
  • 1 – 2 c. mini chocolate chips
  • 1 batch of Homemade Buttercream Icing tinted green
  • green decorating sugar or sprinkles


Preheat oven to 350.

Line muffin tins (24 ct.) with papers.

Put the cake mix, eggs, water, and jello into a bowl. Mix together until blended and then mix for 2 minutes more.

Stir in 3-4 drops of food coloring until the desired pink is achieved. (These will resemble a slice of watermelon when finished.)

Fill the cupcake liners 1/3 full of batter.

Sprinkle on a few chocolate chips.

Cover with the remaining batter.

Bake for 18-24 minutes.

Let cool.

You can spread the icing on the cupcakes with a butter knife or spatula but I put it in a bag and snipped a bit off the end. I then swirled the icing on top.

You can sprinkle them with the sugar or sprinkles if desired.
