Owl cupcake recipe

Inspired from Pinterest

Yields 12 cupcakes


  • 1 dozen store-bought chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting
  • 1 package of Oreo cookies
  • 1 large bag of M&Ms candy


  1. Separate all of the Oreo cookies, using only the cookies that have the white frosting. You will need two cookies per cupcake.
  2. Place one brown M&Ms candy on each cookie to form an eye, making a pair for each cupcake. Add the cookie eyes to the cupcake gently pressing down so the cookie does not fall off the cupcake. Using a colored M&Ms candy, gently press it below and in between the cookie eyes to form a beak. Repeat with the remaining cupcakes.
  3. Serve immediately and store any leftovers in the refrigerator.
