New Year’s Eve Countdown Cupcakes 


  • 6 Vanilla Cupcakes
  • 6 Chocolate Sandwich Cookies (Oreo or any off brand will work)
  • ½ Cup Chocolate Melting Disks
  • ½ Container of Vanilla Frosting
  • Gold and Silver Sugar
  • Nonpareil and Gold Star Sprinkles


Make a batch of your favorite cupcakes and cool them completely. You can also use premade cupcakes. Sometimes I make a big batch and freeze several to decorate later.

With a piping bag or knife, frost all the cupcakes. Sprinkle each cupcake with sugar and sprinkles.

Melt Chocolate in a microwave safe bowl in 30 second intervals or until melted. Make sure to stir each time you check it. Place melted chocolate in a small baggie and cut the corner just a tiny tiny bit. or use your favorite piping bag with a very small tip.

Take your sandwich cookie and split apart. You only need the side with the cream, so you (or a child) can enjoy snacking on the other half while you work!

With your chocolate, pipe on the clock numbers 12, 3, 6, and 9. Then draw a little second and minute hand pointing at any of the numbers. Place clock on the cupcake and push down a little so it stays put. 

5. Enjoy these festive cupcakes!

How does your family celebrate New Year’s Eve?
