Chocolate Bear Cupcakes

Next time your stomach growls uncontrollably, blame the cupcakes. It all starts with a regular old chocolate cupcake- and then the decoration magic happens. Two ears, a muzzle, a pair of eyes and one nose later, and you’ve got yourself one irresistibly cute brown bear staring back up at you. In a battle to the death, You versus Bear- in this particular scenario, my money’s on you.

Cupcakes
 1 box Chocolate cake mix
 'Nilla wafer cookies
 White chocolate chips
 Chocolate chips
 Black gel pen
Chocolate Frosting
 1 cup Butter
 ½ cup Cocoa powder
 5 cups Confectioners' sugar
 1 tsp Vanilla
 3 tbsp Milk

1

Make 24 cupcakes and allow to cool completely.

2

Whip the butter and cocoa powder until well combined. Add the sugar, vanilla, and milk; beat for 1-2 minutes until light and fluffy.

3

Frost each cupcake using a grass pipping tip. Once frosted, cut one wafer cookie in half using a serrated blade. Place at the top corners of the cupcake, rounded side out, to make the ears. Place a second cookie, this one intact, slightly off center of the middle of the cupcake to create a muzzle.

4

Touch the flat side of a chocolate chip to some frosting to act as glue. Place the chocolate chip on the muzzle to create a nose. Set two white chocolate chips, flat side up to form eyes. Dot a black pupil in the center of each white chocolate chip to complete the eyes.
