Give a Hoot Cupcakes
Hoot hoot! Party guests will be "eyeing up" these treats long before you serve dessert! They make a lasting impression and only require six ingredients to make.
Prep: 45 min.
Cupcakes of your choice
1 can (16 ounces) chocolate frosting
1/4 cup vanilla frosting
Chocolate-covered peppermint candies
Small banana shaped hard candies (Runts)
Frost cupcakes with chocolate frosting.
Split the sandwich cookies in half, keeping the cream side whole
(microwaving a few cookies at a time for several seconds helps to
keep the cream side solid). Place the cookies, cream side up, on the
cupcakes for eyes. Cut remaining cookie pieces into thirds; discard
the center third and set the rest aside.
With the vanilla frosting, attach the chocolate-covered mints for
eyes; pipe pupils.
Place reserved cookie pieces above eyes for the ears. Pipe chocolate
frosting on ears and around eyes.
Press the yellow candies in between the eyes as the beak. Yield:
