Valentine Bug Cupcakes

We have all heard the saying “cute as a bug” …

Cute bugs, silly sayings and sweets … are some of the things involved in Valentine’s Day treats.

Well … I decided to make some bug cupcakes for Valentine’s Day … easy peasy … as usual …

You will need …

  • Cupcakes … I used Duncan-Hines Chocolate Fudge cake mix
  • Frosting … I used my Cream Cheese Frosting
  • Candies and sprinkles … I used small and large heart sprinkles, conversation hearts, Peanut Butter M&M’s, heart-shaped candies and Hot Tamale candies
  • Dark and white chocolate, melted
  • Toothpicks or a squeeze bottle for the melted chocolate


Use a red Peanut Butter M&M for the body, 2 large heart sprinkles for wings, white & dark chocolate for eyes and dark chocolate to attach the wings and the spots on the wings.


Use a yellow Peanut Butter M&M for the body, 2 pink heart candies for wings, dark chocolate for the head & stripes, white and dark chocolate for the eyes.


Use a Hot Tamale for the body, conversation hearts with small heart sprinkles for wings, dark and white chocolate for the face and antenna.
