Yum Alert(?): Griller Cupcakes

Written by Ashley

Father’s Day dessert for your family BBQ.

Father’s Day is around the corner (June 19th), and your usual cologne/briefcase/new golf shirt gifts are, I’m sure, always appreciated by good ol’ Dad.  So don’t stray too far from the traditional in that sense… and spice it up THIS way for Dad & the rest of the family.  Kind of cool, kind of nauseating… but worth an artistic shot & a little bit of practice before the big day.

BBQ Grill Cupcakes

Recipe from FamilyFun.Go.com

  1. To make a batch of 12, place liners in a muffin pan, oil them, and fill them two thirds full of your favorite brownie batter, then bake according to the recipe directions. Let the brownies cool.
  2. In a small bowl, mix one or two drops of black food coloring with 1/4 cup white frosting. Transfer the frosting to a ziplock bag and snip a small section from the corner. Pipe grate lines onto each brownie and let them set for 20 minutes. Add embers with a sprinkle of orange sugar.
  3. Prepare the grill food as instructed below and press it in place atop each brownie.
    Kebabs = A caramel cream and red, yellow, and green candy fruit slices, cut into small pieces + toothpick skewers
    Pork chop = two thirds of a caramel cream, molded with fingers + black food coloring, applied with a toothpick
    Hot dogs = Hot Tamales candies + black food coloring, applied with a toothpick
