Chocolate Monkey Cupcakes
I had so much fun making these, they are so simple and yummy – the Monkeys are made from modelling chocolate instead of Fondant icing, so taste amazing!
I even made the cute tree stand, I’ll show you how to make it below, so easy!
Grab a cocktail stick and poke to holes into the fudge for nostrils. Then cut through the fudge with the cocktail stick to make a mouth shape. Use a tiny bit of white fondant icing for the eyes.
Then a tiny bit of black fondant icing for the pupils. I also used a little extra fudge for eyelids as shown above. Now the ears – make two circles from the modelling chocolate.
Then two smaller circles of fudge on top of the chocolate. Squeeze one side of the ear, then pop onto the side of the head.
The arms are quite simple to make, just mould a long oval shape and stick in individual vermicelli for claws! Monkey done – now add to your cupcakes!
Someone asked for Chocolate Flavour Purple Monkey Cupcakes – think I fit the theme pretty well personally!
All you need is a vase, plate and brown & green tissue paper. Wrap the vase in the brown tissue paper, then lay squares of the green tissue on the plate – simples!
Hope you enjoy making these yummy chocolate monkeys!
