What you'll need:
Candy melts - whichever colors you'd like your butteflies to be.
We used green, yellow, pink, orange and brown.
White Nonpareils (got these at Michaels)
First, cut your wax paper into pieces (large enough for two wings) so it's easier to move the wings around when you are finished and you don't smear the chocolate all over when you are trying to do the next one.
Make yourself a butterfly wing pattern on paper.
Stick your candy melts (about 1 cup is enough for 8-10 sets of wings) in freezer duty zip lock bags and microwave in 30 second intervals until they are melted through. Massage after each 30 seconds.
Once the wings have all dried, peel them off the wax paper and place them on your cupcake, propped up by chocolate chips. And Voila! You are finished and you have some super cute cupcakes that you won't want to eat because they're so cute! No worries though- all the little kids will eat them. They have no problems eating all your hard work. ;)
Em even did a little cake with the butterflies as well- and it turned out so beautiful. Ellie didn't appreciate it much now, but she will in a few years. :)
