Chopped Junior-Inspired Lunchboxes: The Cupcake Sandwich
Our young contestants on this week’s episode of Chopped Junior definitely had to think outside of the box for all three challenges. That got us thinking about a new way to enjoy a classic treat like the cupcakes they had to use in the dessert round.
The cupcake sandwich caught our eye a few years ago when an intern showed us this preferred method. By cutting off the “stump” of the cupcake and using it as the top “bun,” to make a sandwich, you solve two problems: First, there are no more disproportionate bites — each one has the perfect ratio of frosting to cake — and second, you don’t have to worry about smashing all that pretty frosting when packing your lunch!
Tune in Tuesday at 8|7 c to see which contestant wins $10,000. And keep coming back every Wednesday for a new recipe idea that will set your lunchbox apart from the rest, Chopped Junior style.
