Because St. Patrick's Day is almost here, I wanted to share with you a simple way to make cute shamrock cupcakes. There are not a lot of candies or embellishments made for this holiday so I made my own.
Using Candy Melts, I made some cute little shamrock shaped candies for the cupcakes.
You can use any cupcake recipe, and top them with the candies.
Place candy mixture between two sheets of waxed paper and cut out shamrock or similar shapes using a cookie or cheese cutter.
Let each cut out cool completely before placing on frosted cupcake.
I used a flower cutter, but it looks like a shamrock when placed on the frosted cupcakes. See below.
They really do make the cupcake look festive.

Here is what you will need:
Shamrock Candy Toppers
1 bag candy melts
green food coloring
small cookie cutter
Place Candy Melts in a microwave-safe bowl. Melt candies in the microwave on 50% power by minute increments, until melted.
Add a few drops of green food coloring and blend. You can add some mint extract if you like. (I apologize, this photo is a bit blurry)
