Lime Kool-Aid Cupcakes

In honor of St. Paddy’s Day, I took my little Kool-Aid Cupcake method and mixed and matched it using lime Kool-Aid.  My kiddos loved it!!  Whether you need a sweet treat for St. Patrick’s Day or just a yummy cupcake for spring and summer, these little cupcakes are the perfect ending to any meal.
Shopping List
1 package white cake mix (plus the ingredients to prepare per box directions)
8 tablespoons lime Kool-Aid powder, divided (2 single packets will work)
1 can vanilla frosting
1 cup Cool Whip topping
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, prepare white cake mix per box directions.  Then using an electric mixer, mix in 4 tablespoons of your lime Kool-Aid.  Poor into lined cupcake tins.  Bake 18-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Let cupcakes rest 5-10 minutes in the muffin tin before removing them to finish cooling completely.  To make the frosting, stir together vanilla frosting, Cool Whip and remaining 4 tablespoons of Kool-Aid.  Frost cooled cupcakes.  Store in refrigerator.

A little green, a little lime, and all yummy!
And don’t forget about my other Kool-Aid Cupcake creations…
Happy Friday!!

    Our family and friends LOVED your cherry kool-aid cupcakes at Valentine's Day time, and want to make these for St. Patrick's Day. I can't find Lime kool-aid in my store. Would you suggest lemon-lime or a different flavor and add green food coloring. We really enjoyed the tartness of the kool-aid in the cupcakes so I want to be sure and use kool-aid instead of just adding green food coloring to regular cupcakes. Thank you for your advice!

    You can substitute lemon-lime Kool-Aide or you can use lime jello powder (from a small box of instant jello pudding). Enjoy!
