Servings: 12

Prep Time: 70 min.


  • Basic Vanilla Cupcakes
  • 12 red taffy pieces (fruit chew candies like Jolly Rancher or Starbursts)
  • 6 green taffy pieces (fruit chew candies like Jolly Rancher or Starbursts)
  • 2 strands black licorice laces
  • 1 can (16 oz.) vanilla frosting
  • 3/4 cup light green decorating sugar
  • 12 baked and cooled cupcakes
  • 24 brown candy-coated mini-round chocolates, (mini candies like mini M&M's)
Tip: To save time you can use a packaged cake mix instead of making the cupcakes from scratch.


  1. Step 1

    Before you start to decorate, make a batch of Nick Jr.'s Basic Vanilla Cupcakes or buy packaged cake mix and follow package instructions to prepare the cupcakes.

  2. Step 2

    Cut each red fruit chew into quarters. Shape 12 of the pieces into the mouth shape, (C shape 1 1/2 inches long). Shape the remaining pieces into small cone shapes. Cut the green fruit chews in half and shape into twenty-four 2- by 1/2-inch rectangles. Cut the licorice into twenty-four 1 1/4-inch pieces. Spoon 1/4 cup of the frosting into a small resealable bag.

  3. Step 3

    Place the green sugar in a shallow bowl. Spread the remaining vanilla frosting on top of the cupcakes to mound and make smooth. Roll the tops of the cupcakes in the green sugar to cover completely.

  4. Step 4

    Insert three pieces of the red candy along one edge of a cupcake. Snip a small corner from the bag with the vanilla frosting and pipe two ovals as the eyes. Add the brown candies as the pupils. Press a piece of the licorice as a frown on the "C" shape piece of red fruit chew and add as the mouth. Arrange the green fruit chew below the mouth. Add the remaining black licorice as the eyebrows.

Tip: Kids will love to roll the cupcakes in green sugar. It's sparkles!
