I wanted to make a snack to go along with our owl experience from the weekend, but I didn't want to spoil a family, fall tradition, by making our usual owl cookies, this early.
Instead, I found a fun, and easy cupcake idea from The Cupcake Blog.
Start with chocolate cupcakes, or at least we used chocolate. Really, any flavor would do.
Frost them with chocolate frosting.
Open two chocolate sandwich cookies, and use the frosting covered sides, for the eyes.
Cut, the edges of the other sides, with no frosting, to make feathers.
Add M&M beaks, by pushing the candy in sideways, under the eyes.
And finally, finish them off with Junior Mint pupils.
Whooo knew it could be so easy?
It's great to be a homeschooler.
