Be creative and make something special for your Halloween guests this year!
Make cupcakes in any flavor, frost each cupcake with chocolate frosting. Cover the cupcake with chocolate sprinkles; be generous to give the impression of fur.
**For eyes, cut a 1/8-inch-thick slice from the large end of two yellow gumdrops. Stick a short piece of shoestring licorice to the cut side of each slice to act as the cat’s pupil. Press the eyes into the frosted cupcake.
**For ears cut chocolate candy into triangles. Insert ears into frosting on cupcake.
**For whiskers, cut shoestring licorice into 2 inch lengths and arrange on cupcake. Use a chocolate chip for a cute nose.
*** For a more nutritious treat take cheese and make into creative shapes
place on top of meat or crackers ***
*** Make a cheese ball and decorate with chips, olives and a pickle stem to look like a pumpkin ***
