Piñata means ‘hiding inside’ and in this case, we’ve got red, white and blue M&Ms inside funfetti cupcakes. You can use milk chocolate, peanut or any other similar candy. You’ll also need some food colors, and I always recommend using natural food colors whenever possible.

Not only are they super-delish, but they look fabulous. Put them out and watch them disappear. So much fun!
