For the cupcakes:

Prepare a muffin pan with muffin cups.

Mix together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and the salt.

In a large bowl beat the butter at medium speed until soft and creamy.

Add the sugars and beat for about 2 minutes, until it's blended into the butter, add the egg, then the yolk.

Beat in the vanilla and add 1/2 of the dry ingredients, mixing only until they disapear.

Add the sour cream and coffee, mixing until incorporated, then mix in the remaining dry ingredients.

Add the melted chocolate, and the M & M's then devide the batter among the muffin molds.

Bake for around 20 minutes at 180 degrees celcius or until the tops of the cakes are dry and a knife inserted into their centres

comes out clean.

Cool the muffins to room temperature before glazing.

For the decoration:

Frost the cupcakes with the Nutella, then coat the tops with the chocolate sprinkles.

With help of the nutella (using it like a kind of glue) attach the M & M's to the marshmallows.

Again with some nutella attach the marshmallows to the cupcake (also attach the nose in the same way).

Using a toothpick poke holes in the sides of the cupcakes.

Insert the legs (licorice, 4 in each side).
