I still wanted to make Brady Elmo cupcakes (mommy guilt for the middle child???) but I'm an accountant, not a baker, so I took a gander down the baking isle at the grocery store. I picked up a chocolate boxed mix, orange jelly beans and frosting in a can that came with really convenient decorating tips built right in in blue and red. I already had Chips Ahoy, chocolate covered Oreos, white chocolate discs (you can use big marshmallows too) and chocolate chips. Assembling them was a breeze!
Brady was still talking about his Elmo cupcakes the next morning so I'd say they were a hit!
