A great back to school treat for the kids!
1 tube yellow gel food coloring – 4 drops to mix with frosting covers 5 cupcakes (we used Betty Crocker Classic Gel Food Colors)
1 tube green gel food coloring (for M&M decoration)
Red and green M&M’s
Chocolate-covered graham crackers
White Good & Plenty candies
Bake cupcakes as directed on box and let cool.
Gradually mix 3 tablespoons of white frosting with 5 drops of yellow gel food coloring in a small bowl (add more gel if you want a darker yellow.)
Cover the cupcakes with the yellow frosting and allow them to sit for 15 minutes before decorating. (this amount should cover 5-6 cupcakes.)
Dab each red and green M&M with a bit of green frosting for the apple’s leaf, then set them aside.
Place the chocolate-covered graham crackers (blackboard) into the cupcake, add M&M (apples) and a piece of Good & Plenty (chalk), as shown.
