Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 15-18 minutes


Ingredients (26-30 cupcakes)

For the Cupcake:
  • 1 box (18.25oz) white cake mix
  • 1 box (3oz) lime Jello (not sugar free)
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 1/4 cup water
For the Topping:
  • 8oz white chocolate, melted
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Koolaid powdered mix (watermelon-cherry Twist flavor)
  • 3-4 Tbsp watermelon puree (see note below) OR milk
  • 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. For the cake, add cake mix, jello, egg whites, oil and water in a mixing bowl. Beat 2 minutes until blended. Fill cupcake liners 1/2 full and bake in a 350 degree oven for 15-18 minutes. Do not overbake. Allow to cool completely.
  2. When cooled, spread melted white chocolate over top of each cupcake. While that sets, begin your frosting.
  3. To make watermelon puree, blend about 1/2 cup of fresh watermelon in a blender until smooth. If you want to substitute milk, that will work too, but I liked having some fresh watermelon in the frosting!
  4. In mixer, beat butter with powdered sugar, Koolaid mix and watermelon puree (or milk). Beat for about 3-5 minutes until fluffy and smooth. Using a decorator bag and tip (I used 6S), pipe frosting on each cupcake and immediately sprinkle with chocolate chips. ENJOY!
