2 bags M&M'S Brand Milk Chocolate Candies Red, White and Blue Blend
1 bag MILKY WAY Brand Minis
1 18.25-oz. box your favorite cake mix
1 12-oz. can whipped vanilla frosting
1 cup whipped vanilla frosting
Red and blue gel or paste food coloring
2 12-cup cupcake pans
24 paper cupcake liners
Spatula for frosting
2 bowls

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line the cupcake pans with the paper cupcake liners.
Prepare the cake mixes according to the package instructions. Chop the unwrapped MILKY WAY Brand Minis and fold them into the batter. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans. Bake for 12-19 minutes, or until golden brown.
Remove from the oven, transfer to a wire rack, and let cool completely.
Meanwhile, tint 1/2 cup of frosting blue and set it aside. Divide the remaining frosting between the two bowls. Tint one bowl of frosting red, and keep the other bowl of frosting white.
Frost 4 cupcakes with the blue icing, and cover with blue and white M&M'S Brand Milk Chocolate Candies. Frost each remaining cupcake half-red and half-white. Cover each colored half with correspondingly colored M&M'S Brand Milk Chocolate Candies.
With the photo as a guide, arrange the cupcakes in 4 rows of 6 cupcakes to resemble an American Flag!

TIP: If desired, you can also add M&M'S Brand Milk Chocolate Red, White and Blue Candies to the cake mix.
Makes 24 cupcakes.
