What child does not like marshmallows-even more- cupcakes!  
Add a movie and you have a fun night with the whole family,
while eating these adorable popcorn cupcakes!

2ndSupplies:
Cake mix
White Frosting
Cupcake holders
Marshmallows
Paper
Red Marker
Tape
3rdInstructions:
Bake Cup cakes and let cool.
Frost cupcakes once they are cooled.
Apply the marshmallows on the top.
My 7 year old put them on the top-there is no specific way to make them look.
4thNext:
Make the striped muffin cups.
I drew out a pattern like this.
They have them online for free, but I decided to free hand mine.
5thI cut out the pattern and added stripes.  The stripes are 3 lines thick.
Meaning when I ran the marker across to make a stripe, I did so 3 different times to make a wider stripe.
I connected the two sides together with tape, which then formed a cup.
I dropped the cupcake into the cup.
6thALL DONE!

DO NOT PUT IN OVEN TO TOAST THE TOP OF THE MARSHMALLOWS!
Frosting will melt.  I tried this to see what would happen and I had   marshmallows and melted frosting everywhere. ha ha!
You can use a longer lighter and lightly toast the marshmallows, or a blow torch.  I chose to leave them plane.

They made my heart giggle when I saw them the first time.  My daughter and I had so much fun putting them together.
Perfect for a Circus Theme party too!

You will need

Pretzels Sticks and mini twists

Almond bark

M&Ms for the eyes

Wax paper for setting up

Begin by melting your almond bark in the microwave for 90 seconds.  I did half a brick at a time.  If it isn’t melted, put it back in for another 20 seconds, taking it out to stir.  Continue those steps until it is melted all the way without chunks.

Once you have the candy coating melted, begin to put your pretzels in.  I started with a twist for the head.  Once it was coated, I fished it out of the candy coating with a fork.  I then allowed the excess candy coating to drip back into my bowl, and set the pretzel on the wax paper.  My pattern was 1 twist pretzel followed by 5 stick pretzels all horizontal under the twist to form the ribs.  Once the ribs are done, do another twist pretzel, but this time do it upside down.  Finally, you will be doing 4 more sticks and laying them for the legs and arms.  If you are using M&Ms for the eyes, now is when you will put them on too.  Continue doing this until all of your candy coating is gone.  I got 12 skeletons out of half a brick of candy coating.  When they were done setting up on the wax paper I used a thin, metal spatula to scoop them off the wax paper.  The skeletons will be fairly brittle in some places, mostly where the head and ribs connect.  Be sure to set them in an airtight container where they won’t be shaken around a lot to avoid them breaking before you are ready to use them.

Now you have a great, inexpensive snack for your kids, a Halloween party, maybe even a school party if you are going to take them yourself.  Not sure how they would hold up in the care of a rambunctious grade schooler!
