Ingredients

  • 1 12-oz. can vanilla frosting
  • 12 cupcakes, any flavor
  • 2 cups sweetened flaked coconut, chopped in food processor
  • 1/4 cup pink decorating sugar
  • 12 marshmallows
  • 24 thin pretzel sticks
  • 12 mini marshmallows
  • 24 brown M&M's minis
  • 12 pink heart candies, such as Runts
  • 6 black licorice laces

Preparation

  1. 1. Spoon 2 Tbsp. vanilla frosting into a small ziplock bag. Frost cupcakes with remaining vanilla frosting. Roll tops of frosted cupcakes in coconut to cover.
  2. 2. Place pink sugar in a small bowl. Using scissors, cut large marshmallows in half crosswise. Press cut side of each marshmallow into pink sugar to make ears. Insert a pretzel stick into 1 short end of a marshmallow ear. Insert pretzel-stick end into cupcake to make ear stand up. Repeat with another pretzel and marshmallow ear; place second marshmallow ear next to first. Repeat with remaining marshmallows and pretzels, placing 2 ears on each cupcake.
  3. 3. Snip a small corner from ziplock bag with vanilla frosting. Using scissors, cut mini marshmallows in half crosswise to make cheeks. Pipe small dots of frosting and attach the mini M&M eyes, heart-candy nose and cheeks. Cut licorice into 1 1/2-inch pieces and insert as whiskers. Repeat with remaining cupcakes.
