Since your cupcakes will need time to cool completely before frosting, I recommend starting with this step.

Prepare the chocolate cupcakes


Then transfer them to a cooling rack and allow them to cool completely.

Bake the cupcakes


Melt the chocolate mix in the green food coloring. Transfer the melted chocolate to a piping bag or ziplock bag with a small hole snipped in one corner.

Make the Christmas tree toppers


Pipe the chocolate over the Pocky sticks in the shape of a tree. Add sprinkles and allow chocolate to solidify.
