Step 1: Place a chocolate truffle in the center of each cupcake (tip: the ones decorated with chocolate swirls create the most realistic look)
Step 2: Grab 8 pretzel sticks and break them in half
Step 3: Dip the ends of each pretzel stick in melted chocolate (thicker chocolate works best)
Step 4: Add 4 pretzel sticks at a 90 degree angle on each side of the truffle for legs
Step 5: Re-connect the broken pieces using the melted chocolate to hold them together.
Step 6: Apply a small amount of melted chocolate to the back of 2 colored M&Ms and stick them to the truffle for eyes.
