Using a large bowl, remove cupcake liners and place cupcakes into the bowl. About 5 cupcakes at a time.

Using your hands, crumb up the cupcakes into fine crumbs.

Using a small ice cream scoop or a tablespoon, scoop mixture into your hands and roll into a ball.

Using 1 package of ghiradelli chocolate, pair up 2 wafers with each cake ball for the ears.

Place a wafer into each corner of the cake balls where ears would go.

Repeat steps with remaining cupcakes and chocolate wafers.

Carefully peel off a cake ball off the parchment paper.

Carefully dip the top half of the cake ball into the chocolate so that the ears and the top half of the cake ball gets coated.

Very lightly shake of excess chocolate and then place back onto the cookie sheet.

Repeat steps with rest of the cake balls.

Once all have been dipped, clean out your pot so that you can melt the red candy melts.

Once the candy melts have been melted, carefully dip the bottom half of the cake balls into the chocolate.

Lightly shake off any excess chocolate and place onto the cookie sheet.

Once all have been dipped into the chocolate, let sit for an hour for the chocolate to harden.

Using tweezers, carefully place two holly leafs and 3 red sprinkles for the berries on the corner of the yellow buckle.

Using the white cookie icing, pipe on a line and polka dots for Minnie’s dress.
