  • INSTRUCTIONS

    1) Mix the cake mix, eggs, oil, Jello and water together with a mixer until well blended, about 2-3 minutes. Put 24 cupcake liners in a cupcake tin and fill the cupcake liners ⅔ full with batter. Bake at 325 degrees for 17 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean
    2) Allow the cupcakes to cool and then frost them. We made large stars with Wilton tip 2D to decorate the tops. You can also just spread frosting on with a knife

  • 3) Cut each Twizzler Pull-n-Peel licorice twist into 3 pieces, about 3 inches each. Peel down each string of Twizzler to about ⅓ of the way down. 
4) In a microwave safe bowl, melt the vanilla Candiquik and dip the separated ends. Dip the coated ends in blue sprinkles.

  • 5) Separate all of the Twizzler ropes so they fan out like a firecracker. Push a Twizzler firecracker down into the center of each cupcake
6) For best results, serve the same day as you make them
