Bunny Candy Splash Cupcakes
The other day, Spring fever hit me really good when the sun started shining, and the temperatures were warmer. I craved bright colors, and spring-like sweet treats so I made some Candy Drizzled Easter Popcorn. It came out super pretty and was almost too cute to actually eat. My kids enjoyed it, but since I has so much extra melts, I didn’t stop there.
In comes these colorful Bunny Candy Splash Cupcakes. They are actually just made from boxed cake mix, and store bought frosting, but I wanted to share the idea with you all of creating a candy splash on your cupcakes. It really can make your next batch of cupcakes really cute, and it is actually super easy to do!
I used candy melts for these cupcakes because I love how quickly they harden verses premium chocolate. It can easily be done with both, but I liked the convenience of the candy wafers already being melted.
Here is how to make Bunny Candy Splash Cupcakes:
- 24 baked and cooled cupcakes
- Vanilla Frosting
- Frosting bag & Large star piping tip
- Candy Melts in Pink, Yellow, and White
- 3 glass bowls
- 3 forks
- parchment lined baking sheets
Frost your cooled cupcakes with your favorite style of frosting
Prepare your glass bowls, and carefully melt each over a double boiler, or using a microwave. Since candy wafers are not real chocolate they actually melt just fine in the microwave. However, if you are creating a premium chocolate splash, the double boiler will not ruin the chocolate’s consistency.
Dip each fork into the melted candy, and then swizzle it over the cupcakes
These cupcakes are perfect for parties, Easter celebrations, or anytime really.
