Dirt Cupcakes Recipe

This past weekend was my youngest son’s second birthday party and we did a construction truck themed party. We made a bunch of decorations for it, and I was trying to decide what to do for his cake. I started searching ideas and kept finding dirt cups, but those are usually made with pudding and I didn’t want that mess. So I decided to try to make them into cupcakes, and they came out delicious!
