Have fun creating these merry-go-round charmers, made with time-saving prepared frosting and snacks and sweet you probably have on hand.
tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips, melted
container (1 lb) strawberry whipped ready-to-spread frosting
unfrosted cupcakes, paper baking cups removed
small paper beverage umbrellas
Dip 1 inch of one end of each pretzel into melted chocolate chips; press on back of 1 animal cracker. Place on sheet of waxed paper; let stand until chocolate is set.
Meanwhile, spread frosting on sides and bottom of cupcakes. Sprinkle with candy sprinkles. Insert 1 animal cracker on pretzel into each cupcake. Place umbrellas in center of cupcake.
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.
