Sweet Seedlings

Sweet Seedlings

Ingredients

  • cupcakes
  • chocolate frosting
  • chocolate cookies
  • green fruit chew candy
  • 2 3/4-inch-wide terra-cotta pots
  • marshmallows, halved (optional)
  • blue fruit chew candy (optional)

Make It

1. Bake a batch of your favorite cupcakes in paper liners and cover them with chocolate frosting. Crush chocolate cookies (we used Famous Chocolate Wafers) into crumbs and dip the frosted cupcakes into them. Use a wooden skewer to make a hole in the center of each cupcake top.

2. To form a sprout, roll a green fruit chew candy (we used half of a Jolly Rancher Fruit Chew) into a cylinder and taper the ends. With a toothpick, etch a line down the center, fold the cylinder in half and shape it as shown, then insert it into a cupcake. Put the cupcakes, in the liners in clean 2 3/4-inch-wide terra-cotta pots (ours cost 70 cents each).

Tip

  • We made our edible cloud and raindrops from halved marshmallows and small pieces of blue Jolly Rancher Fruit Chews.
