- 18 oz. pkg. chocolate cake mix
- 16 oz. chocolate frosting
- 24 vanilla wafers
- red and black decorating gel
- 48 pastel blue or green M&M’s
- 12 Nutter Butter cookies
Prepare and bake cake according to package for cupcakes. Cool completely.
Set aside 1/4 c. frosting. Frost cupcakes with remaining frosting.
With a serrated knife cut off and discard a forth from each vanilla wafer. Place a wafer on each cupcake, with the rounded edge of wafer near the edge of cupcake, for face. Add dots of black gel for nostrils. With red gel, pipe a mouth on each.
Place M&M’s above wafers for eyes; add dots of black gel for pupils.
Using reserved frosting and a #16 star tip, pipe hair.
Carefully separate Nutter Butters; cut each in half. Position one on each side of cupcakes for ears.
