I tried a kind-of new way to make some chocolate cupcakes I've made before.... I'll post that recipe later (like tommorrow.... hopefully).
One batch chocolate cupcakes (12-24... however many you want to make)
1 batch frosting of your choice, with about 1/4-1/2 cup of it set aside to use for eyes
Chocolate Frosted Mini Donuts (12-24 of them)
red Peanut M&M’s®
Mini Chocolate Chips
Mini Pretzel Twists
1. Bake cupcakes and let cool. Frost when completely cool. Place remaining frosting in a piping bag.
2. Press a red peanut M&M® into the hole of the chocolate frosted mini donut. Secured with a bit of frosting.
3. Pipe two dots for eyes and press mini chocolate chips (tip side down) into the frosting to create eyes. Break a mini pretzel twist in half (harder than it seems!) and press them into the top of the donut for antlers.
