These scrumptious cupcakes aren't actually filled with strawberry lemonade, but the creamy center will sure remind you of that refreshing drink!
15 min
1 hr 17 min
24 servings

What You Need

cup  COUNTRY TIME Strawberry Lemonade Drink Mix, divided
pkg.  (2-layer size) white cake mix
tub  (8 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed
small  strawberries, halved

Make It

RESERVE 1 Tbsp. drink mix for later use. Prepare cake batter and bake as directed on package for 24 cupcakes, blending remaining drink mix into batter before spooning into prepared muffin cups. Cool 10 min. in pans. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.

SPREAD reserved drink mix onto small plate. Press top of cupcakes into drink mix.

USE handle of wooden spoon to poke hole in top of each cupcake. Spoon COOL WHIP into pastry bag fitted with round tip. Use to pipe about 1 Tbsp. COOL WHIP into each cupcake; top with remaining COOL WHIP. Garnish with strawberries.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

If You Don't Have a Pastry Bag
Spoon COOL WHIP into resealable plastic bag; seal bag. Cut off one bottom corner of bag; use to squeeze COOL WHIP into, and onto tops of, cupcakes.
Omit strawberries. Prepare and frost cupcakes as directed, using regular COUNTRY TIME Lemonade Flavor Drink Mix instead of the strawberry lemonade mix. Garnish with lemon zest instead of the strawberries.
Easy Strawberry Shortcakes
Bake cupcakes as directed; cool completely. Meanwhile, slice strawberries; toss with the reserved 1 Tbsp. drink mix. Refrigerate until ready to use. Split 12 cupcakes; serve topped with strawberries and COOL WHIP. (If wanting to use all the cupcakes to make 24 strawberry shortcake desserts, toss 24 sliced strawberries with 2 Tbsp. drink mix.)
