Smokin' Cupcakes for Dad!

Our Father's Day special isn't over yet! It's still several days away, but who says you should only that special man feel extra special once this month? How about making it a Father's Week?

If your kids love tinkering around with you in the kitchen, get them to be your little bakers and make these sweet treats fro Dad! If he loves barbecues, or if he loves sweets, or even better: if he loves both, give him this surprise treat from Disney Family Fun:


brownie batter
black foo coloring
white frosting
orange sugar
caramel crams
red, yellow and green candy fruit slices
Hot Tamales candies

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
