  • aked vanilla cupcakes in cupcake wrappers
  • Chocolate Frosting
  • Reese’s Candy – regular-sized cups
  • Snack Sized Hershey bars
  • Candy Eyes
  • Pastry Bag with a writing tip

Extra Equipment Needed:

  • knife


  • about 1/3 of the way down from the top of the cupcake, cut out a section the same width as the Reese’s cup
  • cut a small notch above that for the Hershey’s bar to set
  • insert Reese’s cup into the cupcake so the top part is facing down
  • starting at one side of the Reese’s, pipe chocolate frosting in a curl pattern making a large U shape going all the way to the bottom of the cupcake, and ending up on the other side of the Reese’s
  • place a small amount of frosting on the back of 2 candy eyes and place them under the Reese’s for Abe’s eyes
  • break the snack-sized Hershey bar in half and place some frosting on the side with the wording and notches
  • set that down into your section you cut out centered – above the Reese’s


best if eaten the day of, but if covered and stored at room temperature will stay fresh up to 2 days
