Goin' Batty Cupcakes

What's better than chocolate icing?  Chocolate icing covered in sprinkles!!

These adorable bat cupcakes start out with a chocolate cupcake and chocolate frosted foundation.  Add a Whopper malted candy, a couple of shortbread cookies, and some icing makes a frighteningly cute bat to the top of the mound of chocolate frosting.

Chocolate Cupcakes
Chocolate Frosting
Chocolate Sprinkles
Mini striped shortbread cookies, 2 per cupcake
Whoppers Malted Milk Balls candy, 1 Whopper ball per cupcake
Colored icing

1.  Using a piping bag with no tip, pipe the chocolate frosting on top of your chocolate cupcakes.

2.  Dip the frosted cupcake into the chocolate sprinkles and roll it around until the whole top is covered in sprinkles.

3.  Place one Whopper ball in the middle of the cupcake.

4.  Decorate the back of each cookie (the chocolate side) with an icing shaped bat wing, one for each side of the bat.

5.  Place the decorated cookies into the chocolate frosting behind the Whopper ball, one on each side so that bat appears to have two wings.

6.  Decorate the bat face with eyes and a smile (if you want a happy bat).

Now, you have yourself a chocolatey, delicious bat cupcake.
