Cinnamon Sugar {mini} Cupcakes

Cinnamon Sugar {mini} Cupcakes


Cinnamon, Sugar, and Butter in tiny bite-sized packages. What’s not to love about that? I made these for my daughter’s soccer team. They were a hit! Eating just one mini cupcake left each girl wanting another one.

In addition to serving these as a snack or dessert, they would make a perfect accompaniment for a brunch.

This recipe is another in the growing list of “cinnamon” sugar recipes my family enjoys:
