  • 1 can (16 ounces) vanilla frosting
  • Neon green food coloring
  • 6 prepared vanilla or chocolate cupcakes, baked in liners
  • 1/4 cup purple sprinkles
  • 1 tube (4.25 ounces) brown decorating frosting
  • 8 to 10 large marshmallows
  • 25 miniature marshmallows
  • 35 M&M's minis


  1. Tint vanilla frosting with neon green food coloring. Spread a generous mound of frosting on each cupcake. Before frosting dries, top with purple sprinkles.
  2. Pipe a small dot of brown decorating frosting onto a marshmallow. Lightly press an M&M mini into frosting dot to resemble an "eye." Repeat with remaining marshmallows; let dry.
  3. Pierce marshmallow "eyes" with toothpicks; insert opposite ends of toothpicks into cupcakes in any pattern desired.
