Dr. Seuss Cupcakes

Pin It!


Tomorrow is Dr. Seuss' Birthday! I am so excited about little things like this now that I have a daughter in school! Her kindergarten class is going to be celebrating his birthday tomorrow and I decided to make some cupcakes for the occasion. I spent hours and hours on Pinterest looking for ideas and the one thing that really caught my attention was the Dr. Seuss Cat in the hat marshmallow pops! I wanted to take that idea and make it into a cupcake so I put on my thinkin' cap and came up with the idea of using Mini marshmallows and white melting disks!

Cat In The Hat - Hat Instructions:   |Print Instructions|

48 mini marshmallows
1/2 cup white chocolate melting disks (melted + colored red)
24 white chocolate melting disks (not melted!)
toothpicks

Place the 24 melting disks on parchment paper. Poke a toothpick in the top of a marshmallow. 

Dip the marshmallow (almost) half way into the melted red chocolate. 

With the toothpick still in the marshmallow, place marshmallow (chocolate side down) onto the melting disk. 

Using your finger, press the marshmallow down while pulling out the toothpick. Dip another marshmallow half way into the red chocolate and place on top of the first marshmallow. 

Once dry, pick up the "hats" and dip the very top of the top marshmallow into the red chocolate.

Repeat with all 24 white chocolate disks.

  11. Thanks for sharing these! Found them on Pinterest and they were WAY easier than a different type of Dr. Seuss cupcake I attempted recently that involved frosting in between layers of marshmallows. They came out so cute!

    Thanks again for sharing :-)
