A moose is on the loose in these adorable themed-cupcakes! They're (almost!) too cute to eat.

Ingredients

Cupcakes

1
cup milk
1/2
cup vegetable oil
1
egg
1 1/2
cups Gold Medal™ flour
3/4
cup granulated sugar
1/3
cup unsweetened baking cocoa
1 1/2
teaspoons baking powder
1/2
teaspoon salt
3/4
cup chopped maraschino cherries, well drained

Frosting

1
can Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy chocolate frosting

Decorations

14
peanut-shaped peanut butter sandwich cookies
14
small pretzel twists, cut lengthwise in half
White and red decorating icing (from 6.4-oz cans)
28
blue candy-coated chocolate candies
28
brown candy-coated chocolate candies

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Place paper baking cup in each of 14 regular-size muffin cups, or grease bottoms only of muffin cups with shortening.
  • 2 In medium bowl, beat milk, oil and egg with fork. Stir in remaining cupcake ingredients except cherries just until flour is moistened. Stir in cherries. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups (cups will be almost full).
  • 3 Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of cupcake comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes; remove from pan to cooling racks to cool.
  • 4 Place 1/2 cup frosting in small microwavable bowl. Microwave uncovered on High 5 to 10 seconds or until frosting is melted and can be stirred smooth. Dip tops and sides of peanut butter cookies in melted frosting; place on waxed paper until hardened, about 15 minutes.
  • 5 Frost cupcakes with remaining frosting. Press 1 coated cookie onto each cupcake so cookie extends over edge of cupcake to look like snout of moose. Poke 1 pretzel half into each cupcake, behind cookie, for antlers. Use white decorating icing to pipe on nostrils. Use red decorating icing to pipe on mouths. Attach blue candies for eyes and brown candies for ears.
Tips  

For a fun party idea, make a centerpiece by placing the moose in a circle on a tray.
