So I made these bonfire cupcakes back in… umm… June? It was whenever I made that freaking adorable burlap bonfire bonanza. You know the party I’m talking about, right? Of course you do because this isn’t your first housewife rodeo.
Except, it is.
I have come to terms with just how vital Pinterest is to my livelihood. I love you Pinterest. Please don’t go anywhere. Life without you is like life without wine. And we all know I am not capable of surviving a week of working at home with two kids yipping at my ankles without a dry delight.
Start with a normal amount of frosting.
I admit, not many of my cupcakes have a ‘normal’ amount of frosting because I live with a man who, when we met, consumed frosting straight out of the container. I went along with that phase of our lives, though, because it was freaking tasty even if it was bizarre. Maybe that means these bonfire cupcakes are a ‘skinny’ cupcake? Maybe even diet friendly?
Next, arrange a red, a yellow, and an orange chocolate candy with the letter M on it in a sort of triangle design. Or maybe like a pinwheel? No matter what shape you see, stand them up on their side. It works better that way.
And finally, arrange broken pretzel sticks so they look like kindling. I found the best size to be half of the pretzel stick but you can try whatever you wish. Who am I to tell you how big of a fire to make? Maybe you want to be like my jerkoff neighbor who decided to make a fire as tall as their house? It’s not like my entire yard is full of trees or anything.
Nah… it’s cool, dude. Blaze on.
