  • 1/2 cup almond flour

Preheat oven to 175°C

I mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately and then combine them.

Fill each cupcake cup about 3/4.

Bake for 25 to 35 mins. until they are done. (check with toothpick, poke it half way into cupcake when it comes out clean then it’s done)

Cut small pieces from marshmallow (or sugar paste). Make 2 small balls for ears and 1 small ball for nose. With a toothpick add one drop melted chocolate on the nose.

Put one flat round pink sprinkle under the nose.
