EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

For fun, use any flavor of frosting and cupcakes that you like.

To make frosting the cupcakes easier, freeze them for 30 minutes before frosting.

Use melted chocolate chips as the "glue" to hold the pretzel to the animal cracker. Refrigerate the pretzels and crackers to "set" the chocolate quickly.
