Owl Cupcakes

OMG, these are the most adorable owl cupcakes from One Charming Party!

Supplies: chocolate cupcakes in brown cupcake wrappers (0r white–your choice), chocolate frosting, Oreo type cookies, Reese’s Pieces, plastic knives or something else to frost cupcakes

Let each child make their own owl cupcake. You might want to have one made ahead of time as an example. Each child will need: a cupcake, frosting, two Oreos, two brown and one orange Reese’s Pieces. Have students frost their cupcake. Next, untwist two Oreos then carefully push two brown candies onto the white part of the Oreos. Place the Oreo eyes onto the cupcake. Then put an orange candy on its side between the eyes to make the owl beak.

Owl Crescent Roll "Cookies"

These owl cookies look super easy and so cute! View the recipe at Pillsbury or below.

1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
8 tiny fish-shaped pretzel crackers
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter or margarine, melted
16 milk chocolate stars


1) Heat oven to 375°F. Remove dough from can; do not unroll. With serrated knife, cut roll into 16 slices.

2) For each owl, use 2 dough slices. Unroll a 2-inch strip from each. Place slices on ungreased cookie sheet with sides touching and 2-inch strips at top center. For owl’s horns, fold strips in half and bend toward outer edges; pinch strips at fold, forming points. For owl’s beak, press 1 fish-shaped cracker, tail end pointing toward top of head, into bottom center of dough. Repeat with remaining dough slices and crackers to make 8 owls, placing owls 2 inches apart on cookie sheet.

) In small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon. Brush owls with melted butter; sprinkle with sugar mixture.

Bake about 10 to 12 minutes or until light golden brown. Immediately press 2 chocolate stars on each owl for eyes. Carefully move to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes, before serving.

Poor Owlbert. One day, while eating his third or fourth lunch, Owlbert's tummy exploded. It was a quick and relatively painless endeavor. What started as the beginnings of a burp soon turned South and Owlbert didn't even know what hit him. Upon realizing there was a ginormous hole straight through his middle, Owlbert decided to dedicate to his life to one of service; one that would give him a purpose, since clearly he couldn't carry on eating like a champion eater without a stomach. So Owlbert would like to hang on to your candles or your pretty little things. No matter what you give him, he'll keep good watch. Though he had to leave a glamorous life of flying, winning trophies for eating the most and looking at things from far away, he still has the stoic poise of an owl half his age and girth, making him an incredibly successful catchall.
