Reese’s Frankenstein Cupcakes

Reese’s Frankenstein Cupcakes

Reese’s Frankenstein Cupcakes make with M&M’s, chocolate chips, sprinkles. green frosting and topped with a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup for the fabulous head of hair! Last year I made adorable Frankenstein Cupcakes  and this year I wanted to make a similar type and I figured the only want to make them better was to work in one of my favorite treats… Reese’s :)

These white chocolate melts are made by Wilton or a ton of other companies! Any will work just fine :)  Let them cool a little before piping them out because it will be really runny and you don’t want to make a mess, but don’t fret! It always takes me a few tries to get it right.  Don’t wait long to put the M&M’s on, the melts will set quickly.  Keep in mind you can make blue-eyed monsters or scary red-eyed ones.

Oh! And you’ll notice I fill my piping bag in a glass because I still haven’t been able to grow that third arm :) I put the bag in the glass and then fold the excess over the sides… I hope that makes sense.
