So Easy Turtle Cupcakes

Rise Ruhl


Everybody loves turtles! The chocolate kind, I mean! I have been wanting to make turtle cupcakes but all the recipes I have require special items I can't seem to remember to pick up at the store. So I took some shortcuts so that I can make these quickly for my family. And you can too!
