  • Summary

    A swarm of tiny chocolate frogs makes a delightfully deranged scene (perhaps they escaped from some sweet-toothed witch's cauldron). Here they top moist pistachio cupcakes iced with two shades of green. Make a batch for a Halloween party and then -- presto! -- watch as the treats leap off the table.

    Ingredients

    • 14 ounces unsalted shelled pistachios (about 1 3/4 cups)
    • 1 1/4 cups (2 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
    • 6 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
    • 3 cups granulated sugar
    • 6 large eggs, room temperature
    • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
    • 3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
    • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
    • 6 cups confectioners' sugar
    • 2/3 cup milk
    • Gel-paste food coloring in Moss Green, Brown, Juniper Green, and Royal Blue
    • Miniature chocolate frogs, for decorating
