Bite-size cupcakes

Sep 29, 2019Ashley Brenenstuhl

Itty-bitty teeny tiny bite-size cupcakes that pack the same flavor as they’re larger counterpart.

About the size of a quarter and completely edible with chocolate cupcake liners; it’s impossible to eat just one!

Perfect for party favors, gifts, or better yet, personal consumption.


You’ll need the following baking and candy supplies:

Micro Mini Muffin Pan Set
Medium Peanut Butter Cup Candy Mold
Merckens Chocolate Melts in any flavor or color you'd like


You’ll also need the following ingredients :

Favorite cake batter prepared
Buttercream frosting prepared (see here for our easy buttercream frosting recipe )
Pan coating spray


Bake the bite-size cupcakes

Preheat oven to 320 degrees F.

Prepare your favorite cake batter per instructions.

Arrange micro mini muffin pans on cookie sheet and spray with cooking spray.

Fill each pan cavity with 1 heaping teaspoon of batter.

Bake for approximately 8-10 minutes.

Let cool in pans.

Add a chocolate cupcake liner

Melt Merckens chocolate in a disposable pastry bag or bowl (20-second intervals in the microwave, stirring the chocolate in between intervals to distribute hot spots (see how to melt Merckens here)

Fill mold cavity halfway full with chocolate.

Push a bite-size cupcake down into the chocolate so that the melted chocolate rises up and around the sides of the cupcake.

Place in the refrigerator for approximately 5-10 minutes.

You'll know they're ready to remove from the mold when you can easily pull the chocolate enrobed cupcake our of the mold.

Time to decorate!

We used a number 18 tip to decorate the cupcakes shown but you can experiment with the tip of your choice! Decorate these bitesize cupcakes just like normal cupcakes, except in a much smaller way.

Candy boxes and trays make the perfect packaging for these bite-sized cupcakes
