12jumbo pink heart sprinkles
24 - 1/2inchcandy eyes

12baked chocolate cupcakes topped with a big swirl of black colored chocolate frosting
Unwrap peppermint patties.
Brush a small amount of melted black candy melts on the back of each mini peppermint patty and attach one to each larger peppermint patty.
Dab some black candy coating in the center of the mini peppermint patty and arrange 3 white jimmies on either size to create the cat's whiskers and add a jumbo pink heart in the center on top for the nose.
Use black candy coating to attach two candy eyes to each peppermint patty.
Brush two triangle shaped ears onto a parchment lined baking sheet and set the peppermint patty cat over the bottom edge.
Immediately set 1 small pink heart sprinkle up against the peppermint patty on top of each candy ear.
Let the candy ears harden before moving your peppermint patty cats.
Pour white candy melts into a zip top bag, snip off one tip, and pipe 12 fish carcasses onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Freeze for 3-5 minutes.
Remove and peel the fish carcasses off the paper and flip over so the smooth side faces out.
Assemble the cupcakes by wrapping each cupcake in a picket fence cupcake wrapper.
Then press one peppermint patty cat on the front near the top of the frosting swirl.
Press one black M&M on either side of the frosting swirl below the cat head to create the paws.
Attach one fish carcass to the frosting swirl in between the two candy paws.
