Teacher Appreciation Cupcakes

I can’t say enough about my kids teachers, they are the best! They are so kind and caring and great with my kids. I wanted to show my appreciation to them during Teacher Appreciation week a while ago so I made these fun and delicious cupcakes for them. This awesome idea came from my amazing friend Emily, she is an incredible baker and so creative. I even messaged her for some tips on making these! She is the best! Today I wanted to share with you a little ‘How to’ make these adorable Teacher Treats.

Here’s how to make them…


  • Chocolate Cupcakes/ White and Yellow Buttercream Frosting
  • Large piping(pastry) bag and XL circle tip/ small piping bag and tiny circle tip
  • Fudge/Chocolate covered Graham Crackers (most grocery stores carry these)
  • Red/Green Rips licorice
  • Jumbo M&M’s (pick out the green and red ones)
  • Good & Plenty candy (pick out the white ones)
  • Toothpicks

Let’s get cookin’….

While your cupcakes are cooling add some white frosting to your small piping bag and tip.

Teacher Cupcakes 1Lay your chocolate grahams out on a cookie sheet and use your icing to pipe on the front of the cracker. Things like ‘A+’ ‘123’ ‘ABC’ etc.
