Great for a children's party.


450g packet Green’s Chocolate Cupcakes with Frosting
24 White Choc Melts
24 un-iced plain chocolate biscuits
24 brown M&M’s
12 orange jelly beans



  1. Line a 12-hole muffin pan (1/3-cup capacity) with paper cases.

  2. Prepare cupcakes according to packet directions, reserving frosting mix. Divide mixture evenly among prepared pan holes.

  3. Cook in a moderately slow oven (160C) for about 20 minutes, or until cooked when tested. Stand 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

  4. Prepare frosting according to packet directions. Reserve 1 tablespoon. Spread remaining frosting evenly over cupcakes.

  5. Using reserved frosting as glue, stick melts onto biscuits, then M&M’s onto melts, as pictured. Arrange on cupcakes for the eyes. Place jelly beans onto cakes for beaks.


    TIP. Un-iced cupcakes can be made a day ahead. Store in an airtight container.
