  • Bake cupcakes and allow them to cool down fully.
  • Prepare the frosting and keep aside.
  • In a deep mixing bowl, add cereal and melted chocolate and mix everything together. 
  • Spoon out about two tablespoons of this mixture onto a sheet of wax paper.
  • Stick M&M candies randomly on these monster blobs.
  • Let these monster clusters set and harden at room temperature (takes about 10 minutes).
  • Use a black edible marker to draw eyeballs on the candies.
  • Then, push a horn pick on top of each monster. 
  • Spread buttercream icing on top of each cupcake and top it off each with cereal monster. Enjoy!
