Confetti Cupcakes with Chocolate Chip Buttercream

Today was my 20th birthday and I made cupcakes for my family and friends! I am so glad to be posting again, I have been so busy with finals and transfer stuff the past couple weeks!
I love confetti cake, so I tried mixing sprinkles into my favorite yellow cake recipe and it turned out great!
I topped them with this frosting that tastes just like a candy bar (:
Enjoy! <3

Chocolate Chip Frosting
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips
1 cup room temperature, softened butter
1 cup powdered sugar

Melt the chips by microwaving  them in a bowl for 30 seconds at a time and stirring frequently. Stop heating when they are mostly melted and then stir until the chocolate is smooth. Let cool slightly while you whip butter in a medium-sized bowl. Add the chocolate and continue to whip, then add the powdered sugar and whip until smooth and fluffy.
Find the yellow cake recipe here and just add 1/8-1/4 of sprinkles, depending how colorful you want them (:
Bon appetit!
