Cowboy Cupcakes

Yeehaw!! Frosted chocolate cupcakes are given a "hat" and tied off with a "lasso". Of course, a couple of gals had to get in the middle of the pic!

Ingredients

  • Chocolate frosted chocolate cupcakes (I used cake mix and canned frosting)

  • Pringle potato chips (Original)

  • Large white sugar-coated gumdrops

  • Twizzlers Pull 'n Peel string licorice candy

  • Twine for decorating cupcakes

Directions

Bake and cool cupcakes. Tie a small piece of twine around each cupcake. While cupcakes are cooling, make the hats: Snip a small cut in the center of each gumdrop and dip it in sugar so it won't stick back together. Peel off a string of the licorice and cut to fit around the base of each gumdrop, pinching the ends together to seal. Place one in the center of each potato chip. (Secure gumdrop with a dot of frosting (or melted white chocolate) underneath, if needed.) When cupcakes are cool, frost tops generously and carefully place a "hat" on each one. NOTE: The gumdrops I had were too small so I had to split two of them and join together, dabbing the peak in sugar to keep it from sticking back together.
