Follow Snack or Die's easy recipe to make sweet Mario-inspired cookie cupcakes.

Jocelyn of the website Snack or Die has created some pretty amazing (and delicious) treats based on video games in the past. These Piranha Plant cookie cupcakes are no exception. 

Luckily for you, Jocelyn posts detailed, pictorial, step-by-step recipes for recreating all her work, so you too can make these cupcakes based on the carnivorous Mario plant. I'm an amateur baker, and I think Jocelyn's descriptions of the steps involved in baking these cupcakes are clear enough for even novice bakers to follow.  So next time you want to impress your gamer girlfriend, you know how to do it.

If you want to try your hand at baking delicious video game-inspired goods, but aren't a Mario fan, check out the rest of Snack or Die's posts.  Jocelyn has made goodies like cake and ice cream based on tons of other games like BioShock, Gears of War, and Earthbound.
