Original recipe yields 24 cupcakes



  1. Bake cupcakes according to the directions on the package. Allow them to cool completely.
  2. Scoop 2/3 of the frosting into a small bowl and mix with green food coloring. Frost the cupcakes. Sprinkle some of the green sugar over the tops.
  3. Cut the marshmallows in half to make two circles. Dip half of each marshmallow piece into water and dip into the green sugar to make the eyelids. The remaining white will be the eyes. Place on the cupcakes. Use a little bit of white icing to glue a chocolate chip into the center of each eye for the pupil.
  4. Mix the remaining frosting with red food coloring to make pink. Use the pink icing to draw smiling mouths and nostrils or even tongues on the frogs.

the direction said to cut the marshmallow in half to make two circles... however, my "eyes" kept slipping off because of the arc shape all around. next time, rather than cutting length to length... i'll cut it from width to width forming only an arc at the top and flat surface at the bottom. (overall, very very cute and 3 kids and husband enjoyed them. thanks for the idea.)



These turned out cute! They were fun to make and pretty easy too! The only change I made was I used the peel licorice to make a red mouth. Make sure you put a little more batter in the muffin cups than usual so you have a nice round surface to make your frog on! Very cute idea- big hit with everyone! I made them for "Leap Day" 2-29-2008. I look forward to making them four years! :)



These are really cute and super easy to make. I used the green sugar as called for in the ingredients on half of the cupcakes and used green sprinkles for the other half. I changed the eyes on some with larger chocolate chip pieces and used various gummy candy for the mouth/lips for different "Frog" expressions! Thanks.
