Pistachio Cupcakes

 

This Pistachio Cupcakes recipe is ideal for green holidays, pastel holidays, and any time you crave a pistachio cupcake. Which could be any day of the year around here. They were moist, and the cream cheese icing added a nice touch. You can use green food coloring to make the icing. They were a fantastic St. Patrick’s Day treat. These cupcakes are more delicious than they appear. And I’m not joking. Pistachio-flavored, oh-so-fluffy-yet-moist, supremely tender nutty cupcakes are the best dessert on the planet. St. Patrick would undoubtedly give his blessing to this recipe.

 

Pistachio Cupcakes

 

I enjoy surprising my kids with cute St. Patrick’s Day snacks like these pistachio pudding cupcakes when they arrive home from school. They’re also enjoyable to share with friends and neighbors! Using pistachio pudding mix in the batter is the secret ingredient. It gives the cake a tint of green, but if you want a more vibrant color, add a few drops of green food coloring.

 

Let’s take a look at what makes them the best.

Ingredients for Frosting

  • 6 oz of Butter
  • 4 tsp heavy cream
  • 2 tsp natural pistachio flavor
