Hoot Owl Cupcakes

This was in a suburban magazine recently & since owls seem to be all the rage, I thought I'd whip some up for the grandkids.  I used a box mix and canned frosting, because kids don't care.  Here's how you make these adorable cupcakes. 

Fun for Grandkids to make!
Cover the top of the cupcake with chocolate frosting.

Twist apart two mini cream-filled sandwich cookies so that you have a cream-covered side & a plain cookie side.  Cut each of the plain cookie sides in half.

Using a little frosting, attach two of the plain cookie halves, rounded sides in & about 1 1/2 inches apart, on top of the cupcakes.  Angle the ears slightly away from each other & allow them to extend about 3/4" beyond the edge of the cupcake.

Place two cream-sided cookie halves, cream side up, on the upper half of each cupcake to make the eyes.  Use a dot of frosting on the cream of each cookie to attach a chocolate-covered mint (I used M & M's) to the eyes.

Press a yellow candy (I again used an M & M) in the middle of each cupcake to make the beak.

There you have it...a cute little hoot owl, perfect for Fall!!
