    Ingredients :

  • 9 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 5 tablespoons boiling water
  • or more if needed
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
  • softened and cubed
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • softened
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 3 drops green food coloring
  • 1 (.68 oz. tube) black decorating gel
  • 12 blue candy-coated milk chocolate pieces
  • 4 marshmallows
  • 3 dark colored fruit leather
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
  • ½ teaspoon lemon juice
  • or more as needed
  • 3 tablespoons silver dragees decorating candy
  • 24 sunflower seeds
  • Methods :

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 12-cup muffin tin or line cups with paper liners.
  • Sift cocoa powder into a large bowl and add 5 tablespoons boiling water. Stir into a thick paste, adding more water, 1 tablespoon at a time, if needed. Add 3/4 cup butter and 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar and beat with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Beat in eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition, until batter is smooth.
  • Mix flour and baking powder in a bowl and stir into the batter until well combined. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each 2/3 to the top using an ice cream scoop.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until tops spring back when lightly pressed and a toothpick comes out clean, 10 to 15 minutes. Allow to cool in muffin tin for a few minutes; transfer to wire rack and cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • Beat cream cheese and 1/4 cup butter together in a bowl until creamy. Mix in vanilla extract. Stir in 1 cup confectioners’ sugar gradually until frosting is smooth. Mix in green food coloring.
  • Frost each cupcake with a thin layer of green frosting and refrigerate for 30 minutes to make decorating easier. Frost with a second thin layer of green frosting.
  • Draw a small dot with the black decorating gel on each candy-coated milk chocolate piece for the pupil. Cut marshmallows into 4 slices with a sharp knife and stick 1 blue pupil in the center of each marshmallow piece.
  • Cut fruit leather into crescent shapes or semi-circles for the mouths using small sharp scissors.
  • Mix 2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar with lemon juice in a bowl to make icing. Glue silver dragees onto the fruit leather mouths using a toothpick dipped in icing.
  • Assemble cyclops by placing a mouth and one marshmallow eye onto each cupcake. Stick 2 sunflower seeds on top of the cupcake for the horns.
