Ingredients

  • 1 (.75 oz) pouch fruit roll such as Fruit by the Foot
  • 2 circus peanut candies
  • 1/2 c. canned dark chocolate frosting
  • 24 Ferrero Raffaello almond and coconut truffles
  • 3 (12 oz) pkg. white candy melts melted
  • 24 cupcakes baked in red liners
  • Sweetened flaked coconut

Instructions

Line 2 baking sheets with waxed paper. For scarves, cut fruit roll into 24 (3”x½”) strips; cut notch into ends. For noses, cut circus peanuts into 24 (¼”x1/8”x1/8”) triangles. Transfer frosting into plastic sandwich bag; snip tiny hole in one corner. For heads, pipe frosting eyes and mouths on truffles. Dip wide end of nose into candy melts; attach to truffle. Repeat. Place on baking sheet; let dry.

Working with 1 cupcake at a time, spoon about 2 tbsp candy melts over top, allowing some to flow down side of liner. Immediately, attach head and scarf. Place on baking sheet. Re-melt candy melts as needed. Pipe on frosting buttons; sprinkle with coconut
