{Lego Cupcakes}

My son wanted Lego cupcakes for his class. So, I did some research and here is how they turned out...



1st I purchased the mini lego guy ice tray from http://www.lego.com/ and colored chocolate disk. Fill each section with desired color of chocolate. I found the baggies with a small snip in the corner worked really well. Pop them in freezed for 5-10 minutes.


When they are finished push out of tray.


Then I used black food coloring and a toothpick to draw on the face. Let dry.


Bake cupcakes and top with icing. I found the cute lego blocks at a local candy store.

These were a HUGE hit with the kids!
