Sour Lemonade Cupcakes

How about some dessert? Try these Surprisingly Sour and Sweet Cupcakes! These cupcakes have a surprising puckering sour taste that is just the right amount of sour with the sweeeeeet taste of America's favorite Funfetti Cupcakes!  You must taste to experience the awesome-ness!

1 Box of Funfetti Cupcake Mix (I used Pillsbury)
2 1/2 packs of Crystal Light Pink Lemonade To-Go packs
1/4 c. unsweetened applesauce (I used a granny-smith apple sauce!)
Zest of 1 whole Lemon
1 tbs. Vegetable Oil
1 c. Water
*optional* 2 drops of RED food coloring
*optional* confetti sprinkles

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line cupcake tins with 24 paper liners (if you have silicon liners that works too!) In a small mixing bowl whisk together water and Crystal Light Mix and set aside. In a separate bowl combine Cupcake Mix, apple sauce, lemon zest and vegetable oil.  Add in Lemonade mix and whisk well (you don't need an electric hand mixer for this, just a simple whisk works fine!). After cupcake mix is thoroughly combined add optional food coloring. 
Pour batter into cupcake liners and add sprinkles if desired, bake for 22 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean! ~ENJOY!
