I made this one year when I was in college and low on money. I put the mix into one of those cool self-sealing jars you use for canning, arranging the ingredients in layers for visual interest. Baked some cookies and bought an artist coffee cup, place them all in a small basket and submitted for a secret santa. Got rave reviews! I haven't been able to find the recipe since and just came across it recently so I thought I would post :).
This is a fun, light addition that neighborhood barbecue that doesn't require a lot of preparation. We used to bring around the whole neighborhood when I was a kid. Not sure where we got it from but thought I let you all give it a try!
I modified a recipe that I found online (as I do often) - I like my cupcakes more of a dark chocolate nature. I also found this delightful marshmallow topping (http://www.food.com/recipe/marshmallow-buttercream-frosting-60062) which I adjusted somewhat to produce a wonderful cupcake well received by all.
