Mini Burger Cupcakes & Fries

Megan & Cedar’s original from a box cupcakes are always a crowd pleaser so why not change them up to fit the All American theme. Add a little brownie & some sugar cookies (yes, from a box) and you’ve got these adorable mini burger desserts.



1 box of Betty Crocker yellow cake mix

1 box of brownies

1 roll of break & bake sugar cookies

Red, Green & Yellow frosting 

Sesame seeds


Jumbo Foil Tins


Prepare cupcake mix, bake in jumbo foil tins on a cookie sheet (not a cupcake pan) filling each cup about 1/3 of the way full. Sprinkle top of cupcake with sesame seeds as soon as they are removed from the oven. Bake brownies according to instructions on box.  Roll out sugar cookie dough, cut dough into small strips and bake approximately 5-7 minutes, sprinkle with sugar as soon as cookies are removed from the oven. To assemble mini burger, use round cookie cutter to cut brownies into round pattie, cut cupcake in half, top bottom layer with the brownie. Use frosting to add condiments to the burger, add top of the cupcake to complete the mini burger. Serve next to sugar cookie fries.

BBQ Chip Chicken Fingers

Chicken fingers have been a Megan & Cedar specialty for a while. This is a simple American twist on our grandma’s Italian style chicken fingers. It’s also a great recipe to prepare for an indoor BBQ on those hot summer days when you don’t feel like going outside to grill.


1 lb Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts (cut into strips)

1 bag of BBQ Potato Chips

1 cup of Plain Bread Crumbs

1 egg

1/2 cup milk

Vegetable Oil (enough to fry with)


Crush bag of BBQ chips into crumbs. Set aside approximately ½ cup of the crushed BBQ chips & combine remaining BBQ chips & plain bread crumbs a small bowl.  In another small bowl combine egg & milk to make an egg wash. Heat oil to 350 degrees. While oil is heating, coat chicken strips in the egg wash, then bread in the chip mixture; repeat step to double bread the strips. Place breaded strips in hot oil and fry until golden brown. Remove from oil and sprinkle with BBQ chips that were set aside.
