I used this recipe more as a jumping off point. I used a different chocolate cupcake recipe (don't have and didn't want to buy a mix), so I just used the decorating ideas. These really aren't too hard, but I couldn't find black licorice and so cut up tootsie rolls in order to make the legs. I liked it that way, with brown legs, but I really didn't like the effort that took. It's difficult to cut tootsie rolls! I used scissors, but the issue is the thickness and the candy sticks to the scissors. At any rate, I also used white frosting but used cocoa powder and food coloring to make it more brown. I didn't have orange sprinkles, and I really wanted to use brown sprinkles but couldn't find them. All in all, if i can find black licorice next time I'll use it. Thanks for the idea!
