Make It With A Cakemix's Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cupcakes

This wasn't my favorite thing, but my boys really liked it.  I gave it a 7, and the boys gave it a 9, and Aaron gave it an 8.  This was super easy, as it uses a cake mix, but the frosting was really delicious, and this was a fun idea.  I made a few changes from the recipe, because we didn't want fruit in this.  Also, the frosting has to be piped from a wide tip, since sometimes you can get little bits of cereal in your frosting unless you sift it.  Each cupcake is 345 calories, and here's what to do:

1 box butter pecan cake mix
3 eggs
1/3 c melted butter, cooled
1 c buttermilk
2 t vanilla
1 c cinnamon baking chips

1/2 c Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal, finely crushed
1 c butter, softened
2 T milk
1 t vanilla
1/2 t cinnamon
4 c (or a little less) powdered sugar

Preheat the oven to 350 and line your cupcake pans.  Combine the eggs, butter, buttermilk, and vanilla until smooth.  Stir in the cake mix and cinnamon chips.  Fill muffin liners and bake for about 17 minutes or so.  Let cool.
Beat the butter for 2 minutes, then add in the cereal, milk, vanilla and cinnamon.  Then add in the powdered sugar.  Pipe onto cooled cupcakes.
