Groundhog Day Cupcakes

Every time I look at this, I giggle!  Happy Groundhog Day everyone!  I meant to get these up on the blog this morning but life got in my way and I haven’t had a chance to sit and blog until now but I wanted to get these up on Groundhog Day.

1 batch of cupcakes, your choice, chocolate will work better for the color

1 batch frosting, your choice, again chocolate will work better for the color

1 package Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafer Cookies, processed in food processor until fine crumbs

1 – 2 bags Snack Size Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

1 – 2 bags Hershey’s Chocolate Drops

brown M&M’s

Jet Puffed Mallow Bits

candy eyes

mini brown M&M’s

brown Wilton candy melts, melted according to package directions

1  Make groundhog faces using melted candy melts to attach 2 Hershey Drops for cheeks, 2 mallow bits for teeth, 1 brown mini M&M for a nose, 2 candy eyes and then 2 regular size brown M&M’s for ears.  Allow chocolate to set.

2  Frost cupcakes with a thick layer of frosting then roll tops in crushed wafer cookies until coated.  Carefully press face into top of cupcake then add 2 more Hershey Drops for paws using the melted chocolate to hold them in place.
