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 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.
  5. Press the yellow candies in between the eyes as the beak. 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."
