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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 45 min.
MAKES:24 servings
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 45 min.
MAKES: 24 servings

Ingredients

  • Cupcakes of your choice
  • 1 can (16 ounces) chocolate frosting
  • Oreo cookies
  • 1/4 cup vanilla frosting
  • Chocolate-covered peppermint candies
  • Small banana-shaped hard candies (Runts)

Directions

  1. Frost cupcakes with chocolate frosting.
  2. 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 crosswise into thirds; discard the center third and set the rest aside.
  3. With the vanilla frosting, attach the chocolate-covered mints for eyes; pipe pupils.
  4. Place reserved cookie pieces above eyes for the ears. Pipe chocolate frosting on ears and around eyes. For beaks, press yellow candies between eyes. Yield: varies.

MY REVIEW

"I made 24 of these cupcakes for our daughter and son-in-law's woodland-themed baby shower. Everyone thought that they were adorable! Although they were easy to assemble, they were rather time-consuming to make; however, the end results were so well worth it! I will definitely make them again."
