I baked the Monkey Birthday Cupcakes the night before (from a box of course) and decorated them while my almost 1-yr old and 3-yr old’s napped. I had planned to use M&M’s for eyes but apparently had eaten them all so I scrounged around and found Jelly Bellies and leftover Valentine’s Day candy hearts.
I used a whipped milk chocolate frosting, large Nilla wafers for mouth/nose and alternated between Mini Nilla wafers for ears and halved peanut cookies. Used red frosting pen to dot eyes, nose and draw mouth. The decorating was much faster and easier than I expected, hopefully will be for you too!
