Give a Hoot Cupcakes Recipe

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. YIELD: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.
