Sprouting Seedling Cupcakes!

This adorable treat comes from the April 2012 issue of Family Fun Magazine. 
Directions:  Bake cupcakes in paper liners and frost them with chocolate frosting.  Crush chocolate cookies -(we used Chocolate filled Oreos) into crumbs and dip the frosted cupcakes into them.  Use a toothpick to make a hole int he center of each cupcake top.  To make the sprouting seedling, roll a green fruit chew candy ( we used green Airheads.  I ripped the Airhead into pieces.  The magazine used Jolly Rancher Fruit Chews) into a cylinder and taper the ends.  With a toothpick, make a line down the center and fold the cylinder in half and shape it to make a v shaped seedling.  Then insert it into the cupcake.  The magazine put the cupcakes, in clean 2 3/4" wide terra -cotta pots.  I didn't have any, so we didn't do this. 

Materials Needed:  cupcakes, chocolate frosting, chocolate cookies, cupcake liners, green chewy candies, toothpick
