- 6 marshmallows
- 6 chocolate or vanilla cupcakes baked in black foil liners
- 1 can (16 ounces) vanilla frosting
- Neon green food coloring
- 6 small chocolate-coated mints
- Trim a corner from one short end of each marshmallow. Attach the marshmallows, cut side down, on top of the cupcakes with a dot of frosting.
- Spoon 2 tablespoons of vanilla frosting into a small resealable bag; set aside.
- Tint the remaining vanilla frosting neon green with the food coloring. Spoon the neon green frosting into a resealable 2-qt. freezer bag. Snip a very small corner (1/8 in.) from bag. Pipe dots of frosting along the outer edge of the cupcake with a pipe-stop-and-pull action to create spikes of frosting. Continue piping all over the cupcakes to completely cover all but the flat side of the marshmallow. Repeat with the remaining cupcakes and frosting.
- Snip a very small corner (1/16 in.) from the bag with the vanilla frosting. Pipe a dot of vanilla frosting in the center of each marshmallow and attach the chocolate-coated mint. Pipe a small line to add as the sparkle in the eye. Yield: 6 cupcakes.
Reviews for Green-Eyed Monster
"I loved this, but didn't use marshmallows nor candy,,just icing all the way through. I also didn't put that much green icing to overwhelm the cupcake. My work loved the look of them. Good and cute!"
"The kids had a GREAT time decorating these and many more monster cupcakes! They are very sweet, but soooo cute!"
"EVERYONE LOVED THESE MADE THEM FOR MY GRANDSONS 10TH B-DAY PARTY KID THOUGHT THEY WERE GREAT!"
"I made these with my two nieces ages 12 & 10 for one of their school carnivals. We had a blast and we did the halloween candy corn M&Ms for the eyes...alot faster to make than I thought they would be... video was a great demo"
"Made last year for halloween. Fun design, easy to do."
"I made these for my 3rd graders class as a birthday treat. These were easy and fun to make my 4yr old helped. The kids in the class were so excited when i revealed these green eyed cup cakes, i made green, and pink w/ different colored eyes. It works out perfect having a child w/ a themed b-day :) Thanks Karen for sharing, i liked the video online too."

"Changed the icing to green and some purple. Purple for the one eyed purple people eater :-)"
"Made these with my daughter. They were adorable and easy. One of the few recipes that works out exactly as it said. Tip. refridgerate Icing before piping to keep spikes stiffer."
