Gather around these cupcakes next time you need a fun summer dessert.



  1. In a small bowl, mix the frosting with green gel food coloring. Spread the green frosting over the chocolate cupcake. Finely chop the malt balls and sprinkle over the cupcake to resemble dirt.
  2. Cut the chocolate chew in half lengthwise. Cut both halves in half again lengthwise to make 4 logs. Arrange 3 of the logs in a triangle in the center of the cupcake (eat or discard the fourth log). 
  3. Using scissors, snip the gummy bears into small pieces. Arrange the snipped gummy bears in the center of the logs to create a fire. Poke a mini marshmallow on the tip of each pretzel. Stick the pretzels in the frosting to form a tripod that meets in the center.
