Dark Chocolate moist cupcakes are frosted with vanilla buttercream and decorated with Almond M & M’s to resemble picnic- ants.
To make Candy Ants:
Fill small zip lock baggie with chocolate frosting. Clip 1/8″ along one side of baggie with scissors or use a disposable piping bag with tip # 2. Place three Peanut M & M’s in a single line. Pipe three legs on each side of middle of ant candy using dark chocolate frosting. Pipe feelers on head to complete ant.
Hint: Avoid sitting these cupcakes in full sun, the chocolate will soften and bleed on frosting if cupcakes get warm.
