Owl Cupcakes

I made these today for my Sisters Baby shower. She loves owls and I thought it would be a fun thing to give guests as they went home. It also would be a fun thing to make this month for Halloween, so because I am nice I thought I would share with you!! I have to admit I saw these in a magazine and ripped the page out so I don't know which, but they are super easy and super cute. Give them a try!

Basically for this cupcake start by baking your favorite cupcake recipe or mix. For the eyes buy double stuff Oreos and using a spatula cut through the cookies so all the frosting is on one side ( I needed more than one package for 24 cupcakes). I saved the other half of the Oreos for a cookie crust, but you can just dunk them in some milk too. Frost your cupcakes normally and stick on two Oreo halves. Next stick on two junior mints with frosting to complete your eyes. Use a banana runt for the nose and complete with a few swooshes of frosting above and below the eyes. I used a star tip for this part so it would have a textured look. They are soooo cute, and tasty too!
