FOR THE DRUMSTICKS:
- pretzel rods
- 1 cup vanilla frosting
- 3 plain store-bought doughnut holes
- 1 cup cornflake crumbs or graham cracker crumbs
FOR THE PEAS AND CARROTS:
To make the drumsticks:
Break off about 3 inches of a pretzel rod and place the broken end into a donut hole.
Frost the donut hole and about 1/2 inch of the pretzel rod giving it a drumstick shape.
Place cornflake crumbs in a medium bowl. Roll the "drumstick" in the cornflake crumbs making it look like a fried piece of chicken.
Gently press frosted cupcakes in crumbs to cover completely then place a drumstick on top of each cupcake.
Place cupcakes in a 6-cup disposable aluminum cupcake baking tray.
To make the mashed potatoes:
Spread vanilla frosting on 1 cupcake, mounding it slightly. Use a small spoon to create a well in the center of the frosting. Place cupcake in aluminum baking tray.
Place yellow fruit chew (smoosh it around the sides so it flattens and looks more like it is melting) in the well at an angle.
Drizzle caramel sauce on top of cupcake so that it fills the well and spills over like gravy.
