  • To Make Eyes: (see photos) Melt white chocolate melts, pour into a small bag to make a mini piping bag, pipe dime-sized circles onto wax paper then immediately place a brown M&M on top and let set for a few minutes.
  • Pipe green frosting onto cupcakes (see photos) and shape the frosting into Frank's head. You can make it as square-shaped as you like! Place a Reese's Cup on top, put eyes on and then chocolate chips as"bolts" and use the Jimmies to give eyebrows and a mouth!
