Ingredients
  

Cupcakes

  • 1 box Krusteaz Pumpkin Spice Quick Bread Mix

Decorations

  • 1 can frosting white
  • 1 bottle food coloring orange, green
  • 5 oz. chocolate chips (as desired)
  • licorice wheels black

Instructions
 

Cupcakes

  • Bake muffin mix as directed by box. Allow to cool completely.

Decorations

  • Divide the frosting into three bowls. Color 1/4 of the frosting orange, and the remainder two different shades of green. Set frostings aside.
  • To create the burning logs, cut two pretzels in half. Dip ends into orange frosting. Set the four pretzel halves together in an X on a cookie sheet. The frosting should hold them together. Place cookie sheet in refrigerator to harden.

Assembly

  • Flip cupcakes upside-down. Scoop out a 1/2" cavity from each cupcake.
  • Fill the cupcake hollow with green frostings and swirl around, creating a two-toned look.
  • Melt the chocolate chips and pour into piping bag (or zip-top bag).
  • Cut licorice into 4" pieces. Use melted chocolate to secure each end of a piece of licorice to opposite sides of the cupcake (as a handle).
  • Use melted chocolate to secure pretzel fire to bottom (rounded) of each cupcake.
