The idea for these cute monkey cupcakes...
came from the header of Meet the Dubiens. See them there at the top? She did a much better job than I did, but at least you get the idea. I could never find the instructions for those cuties on her blog (perhaps you can?), so I had to improvise.
To make them like I did, you will need cupcakes frosted with chocolate icing, Nilla Wafers, chocolate chips and mini Reeses Peanut Butter Cups.
|First cut your Nilla Cookie in half with a sharp knife. There will be some crumbs. Don't worry about that unless your cookie crumbles.|
|Place the Nilla Cookies on the cupcakes to look like the nose and mouth.|
|Add chocolate chip eyes.|
|and Mini Peanut Butter Cup ears. It looks like she pushed them into the frosting more than I did. |
Or maybe she used something else? Anyway, I am not sure why her ears look better than mine.
|There you have it. Even with funny ears, my boys loved them.|
