July 4th Firecracker Cupcake – Top Fast & Easy Patriotic Holiday Food Design Project


  1. Unwind the licorice wheel and separate the two strands. Cut the licorice into pieces about an inch long.
  2. Place the red melting chocolate wafers in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second increments, stirring after every 30 seconds to prevent overheating. Stir and heat until the wafers are melted and smooth.
  3. Cover a baking sheet with waxed paper or parchment. Skewer a marshmallow with a toothpick, and dip it into the melted coating. If necessary, use a spoon to pour coating over the marshmallow to make sure that it’s fully covered. Pull it out of the coating and let the excess drip back into the bowl.
  4. Place the marshmallow on the baking sheet and gently twist the toothpick out of the top. While the coating is still wet, stick a piece of licorice into the hole in top of the marshmallow.
  5. Repeat until all of the marshmallows have been dipped. Refrigerate the tray to set the coating completely, for about 10 minutes.
  6. Once set, stick a marshmallow firecracker into the top of a frosted cupcake, and serve!
