Easy Carrot Patch Cupcakes with Strawberry Carrots
 
 
Ingredients
  • Chocolate cupcakes
  • Chocolate icing
  • Orange candy melts
  • Oreo cookie crumbs
  • Fresh strawberries
Instructions
  1. Prepare the chocolate cupcakes and icing. Make them homemade or from a package, it's completely up to you!
  2. Follow the directions on the package of candy melts and melt approximately 1 cup of orange candy melts. Stir in ½ teaspoon of cooking oil at a time until the candy melts have a smooth consistency.
  3. Dip each strawberry into the candy melts then place them on a parchment lined baking sheet to harden.
  4. Pour the remaining melted orange candy melts into a zip lock bag. Cut a small hole in the corner of the bag. Gently squeeze lines over the strawberries, going back and forth to make lines across the strawberries.
  5. Using a teaspoon measuring spoon, "dig" little holes from the top of each cupcake.
  6. Spread icing onto each of the cupcakes, then gently press them into a bowl of Oreo cookie crumbs.
  7. Place a strawberry carrot into the hole in the top of each cupcake.
  8. Enjoy!
