Skull Cupcakes!


These were pretty easy, they took about an hour and that includes decorating them. I baked them last night and decorated them this morning. I had them chattering skulls out the door this morning! They are going to a party at hubby's work!





24 unfrosted cupcakes (white or yellow works best but I used chocolate)
12 big marshmallows
1 can of white frosting
48 Junior Mints
24 choc chips
raw slivered almonds


Cut all your marshmallows in half widthwise. You will have 48 marshmallows, set aside. Carefully pull each cupcake liner partially away from the cakes and tuck in half of a marshmallow between the paper and the cupcake to create the skull's jaw.
Frost each cupcake and marshmallow, then add Junior Mints with white frosting dots for eyes (I added red sprinkles for pupils), a chocolate chip for the nose and slivered almonds for his charming smile! 
They were too fun, I just might have to make them again for the kids :)
Enjoy!
