1 packet chocolate cake mix
1 box of Smarties
2 fingers of Kit Kat
1 Rolo
4 rows of Milkybar

Set aside to cool.
To create a Smarties nest, use a melon baller to make a hole on top of the cupcake, and fill it up with Smarties.
To make a hashtag take-a-break cupcake, break two Kit Kat fingers in half and arrange it on top of a cupcake in a hashtag sign.
To make a have-my-last Rolo cupcake, use a melon baller to scoop out a Rolo-sized hole on top of the cupcake and place a Rolo in it. Melt the four rows of Milkybar in a microwave at 20-second increments to keep it from burning. You can add a dash of milk while melting if it is too thick. Once melted, use a spoon to drizzle it over the cupcake.
