Pastry bag fitted with a #804 or #2A (1cm) round tip
Twelve 6-inch (15cm) cake pop sticks
11/2cups (375mL) butter icing
12 cupcakes in liners
1 cup (250 mL) milk chocolate candy melts
6 mini chocolate bars
10 packages of lightweight candy pieces (M&Ms, Skittles, etc...)
Carefully cut off the end of each chocolate bar package to expose the end of the bar. Cut a corner off each candy package, ensuring the logo will be pouring downwards.
For The Chocolate Bars
Dip the top half of a cake pop stick in the melted chocolate and slid up through the base of the bar to the middle. Let dry for 1 minute.
Carefully slide the other end of the cake pop stick diagonally into a cupcake, making sure not to press too hard and pierce the bottom.
Spoon melted chocolate around the stick on the cupcake to cover any visible stick and make it appear like the chocolate bar is melting.
For the Candy Packages
Empty all of the candy pieces into piled, dividing them by variety, and set aside.
Dip the top of each cake pop stick in melted chocolate. Gently slide a package down each stick and hold it in place for about 1 minute, until the candy hardens and secures it.
Carefully slide the other end of each cake pop stick diagonally into a cupcake, making sure not to press too hard and pierce the bottom.
Using the melted candy as glue, attach candy pieces to each stick, working from the bottom up and matching the candy to the package.
Use the remaining candy pieces to decorate the top of each cupcake and hide any visible stick.
