Spring Chick Cupcakes ~ Quick and Easy Easter Dessert
- 24 large lemon heads ( or yellow gumball) I bought them at my local WinCo in the bulk bins
- 1 Tablespoon mini chocolate chips melted (toothpick to apply)
- 6 orange Starburst
- 24 frosted cupcakes
First step is to create these cute little Easter Chicks. Unwrap your lemon heads, they are NOT perfectly round which is nice you can find a side that is a little more flat. Once you find this side they will NOT roll around anymore and become easier to work with.
Unwrap the starburst, use a sharp knife to cut the four corners off, each one of these corners will now become the “beak” of your chick. Take your thumb and your pointer finger and press the triangle shaped piece of starburst onto the lemon head. They should stick right on there unless it is too cold. You can then take the knife and cut the beak horizontal to make it look like it is open.
To make the eyes, melt chocolate chips use a toothpick to dab melted chocolate above the beak to create eyes. Allow them to dry before you add them to the cupcake (only takes a minute or two). Frost your cupcakes, put your chicks on top and you have an adorable Easter Chick Cupcake.
Tip: if you can not find large lemon heads you can use large yellow gumballs instead.
