Cole played basketball at the YMCA and we just wrapped their season. We had an award ceremony with a potluck meal. I thought it would be fun to bring cupcakes for the kids. I saw these Basketball Oreo Cookies on The Domestic Rebel. I knew they would look perfect on top of a cupcake! I love serving cupcakes in a clear cup that is wrapped in a clear bag with ribbon. It's perfect for parties so people can take them home away with them.
What you Need:
Orange Candy Melts
Plastic Cup (Optional)
Clear Plastic Bag (Optional)
Bake and frost your cupcakes. Melt your orange candy melts, I put mine in my glass pampered chef bowl and place in microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds. I stir the melts to make them smooth then place an Oreo in the candy melts. Using my slotted spoon I take the Oreo covered on to some parchment paper to dry. Once dry I melted some chocolate chips in a pipping bag. I then pipped the lines to look like a basketball on top of the dipped Oreo.
You can serve this way or you can place on top of a frosted cupcake like I did. Now I like to serve cupcakes in a easy transportable way. I do this for a lot of parties so ppl can take cupcakes home. I place the done cupcake in a clear cup (12 pk dollar tree $1) then take a clear bag (25 pk dollar tree $1) and put the cup/cupcake into it. I tie with a ribbon (Roll Dollar tree $1). BAM done!
