Ingredients

Steps

  • 1

    Carefully pull back a small section of paper from each cupcake; insert marshmallow half between paper and cake of each. Frost tops of cupcakes and marshmallows to look like skull shape.

    For each skull cake, use 2 mint candies for eyes, 1 chocolate chip, point side down, for nose, and 6 to 8 almonds for teeth. Store loosely covered.
