Ingredients For Your Green Eggs And Ham Cupcakes

This recipe is similar to another Dr Seuss inspired recipe I recently put up- the Cat in the Hat cupcakes (or Truffula cupcakes or Oh the Places You’ll Go cupcakes), and if you’re planning a Dr Seuss themed birthday party for your little one, I highly suggest you try both of them together.

This one’s super easy to make- and you need just a few supplies to get started.
