Fried Chicken Dinner Cupcakes

My husband Cody loves fried chicken, but I just can't seem to perfect it! So for his birthday treats, I made him these Fried Chicken Dinner cupcakes. I saw them on Paula Deen and just had to try them myself. They are so easy and so cute!

The fried chicken is a donut hole frosted and covered in crushed graham crackers. I used a toothpick to adhere it on the cupcake that was covered in graham crumbs too. If you have time to make a little bone out of melted white chocolate-by all means do it! I didn't have time so you will have to use your imagination here! The peas and carrots are green Skittles and orange Starbursts cut into little squares. For the mashed potatoes and gravy, I took just a little of the center of the cupcake out with a melon baller and frosted it. The pad of butter is a yellow Starburst and the gravy is caramel! To really make them even better, set them in a disposable muffin tin! Aren't these fun?!

Cody wasn't as excited about these as I was, he would have rather had the real thing! But all the guys at work just loved them! I even took some to my work and they were a hit! I hope you give these fun cupcakes a try!
