We turned chocolate truffles into these uber cute DIY Truffle Monster Cupcake Toppers for a festive Halloween treat.
Basically, I will never tire of topping desserts with other desserts. Luckily, it’s slowly becoming coat weather so we’re all slightly more willing to go hard on the icing.
You also still have plenty of time to whip up these DIY Truffle Monster Cupcake Toppers that I made with real LINDOR truffles. Who’s pumped?!
They’re also really easy to make and your co-workers will love you. At least mine did!
Never mind the fact that I’m engaged to one, and the other loves truffles even more than I do, which no one thought was possible before now.
And when it comes to Chocolate Salted Fudge Truffle Non-Dairy ice cream is like a gift from heaven.
We also put together a fun little video for the how-to, because I think we could all use a little dessert monster in action today, don’t you think?
We chose to go with the Halloween Jack-a-Lantern and Ghost mixed truffle bag since they’re obviously fitting for the theme.
You can also incorporate this Halloween Macarons Dessert on top of any dessert that is super cute and easy to make.
But we just tried out the new LINDOR Pumpkin Spice flavor and they are freaking delicious! Basic B’s everywhere will unite over those, myself included.
If you haven’t tried them yet, hop to it! In the meantime, we’ll get to show you how to dress up these smooth, melting truffles..
Ingredients and Tools Needed To Make DIY Truffle Monster Cupcake Toppers
Royal icing mix — Or your favorite royal icing recipe
Gel food coloring
How to Make DIY Truffle Monster Cupcake Toppers
Step 1 – Mix the royal icing mixture until it’s the consistency of smooth cake icing.
Step 2 – Then, transfer scoops into several different cups for each color of icing.
Step 3 – Squeeze a small amount of gel food coloring into each cup, and messily stir to create the marble effect.
Step 4 –Unwrap your LINDOR truffles, generously dip one end into each color, and place them on top of your cupcakes.
To make them look extra spikey, I used a straw to dab on extra royal icing so that the ends really stood up.
Step 5 – Now you’re going to doll up your monsters with candy eyes and colorful sprinkles on their heads.
Let them dry completely, and serve!
What do you think?! The marbled colors are definitely my favorite. But I’m a color lover through and through.
Let us know if you end up making these for the kiddos or coworkers!
