This is what I ended up bringing based on an idea I found here. How CUTE are they???
Here is what I did:
I started out by collecting the following items:
Cupcake Mix (I used a box that I got on sale a few weeks ago)
M&M's (brown and red)
White Chocolate Chips
Step 1: Bake cupcakes
Step 2: Spread chocolate icing on cupcake (Note: Do not let the icing dry before going on to the rest of the steps below).
Step 3: Add a Vanilla Wafer on the bottom.
Step 4: Place an M&M on the Vanilla Wafer using some leftover icing.
Step 5: Add two white chocolate chips (bottoms up) for the eyes.
Step 6: Add two pretzles on the top of the cupcake, sticking out slightly (see picture).
Step 7: Put a little bit of chocolate icing in a ziplock bag and cut the tip. Use this to pipe little eyes on top of the white chocolate chips.
Here is the finished product. They didn't take too long and everyone loved them:)
OH...I almost forgot the most important part...a little taste-tester made sure any of the broken vanilla wafers didn't go to waste:) She wanted to help decorate, but ended up eating the materials....
Speaking of my grandmother (these cupcakes were for her family party)...today is her birthday. Happy Birthday Gram!!
