Malted Chocolate Fudge Stuffed Cupcakes with Rainbow Chip Frosting

Question for you: What could be better than a malted chocolate fudge stuffed cupcake?

A malted chocolate fudge stuffed cupcake topped with RAINBOW CHIP FROSTING, that’s what.

It’s back, you guys! The frosting with the fun little rainbow-colored chips is back! I could do a jig about it, I’m so happy. But to save us all from that embarrassing display of affection, instead I will eat a cupcake in celebration.

Actually, make that two cupcakes.

I’m not the only one excited about Betty Crocker’s Rainbow Chip Frosting’s triumphant return. There are Facebook groups with more than 15,000 fans, a petition with more than 6,500 signatures and hundreds of pleas per week sent directly to General Mills for the return of the beloved frosting. That’s some serious affection right there. And Betty is listening, which is why they are bringing it back to the masses.
