These bad boys are completely from scratch.  They have an awesomely moist chocolate cupcake body, that is just so good!  You make 24 cupcakes, but I only needed 16 cupcakes for our party.  The rule of sheep head here is that you get about four sheep for every cupcake that you crumble and add 1/2 tablespoon of frosting too.  And this frosting is kind of ridiculous.  Like hand me a spoon ridiculous.  You use some little candy eyes for the eyes, and you rip the sides off a mini marshmallow for the ears (about 1/3 of a mini marshmallow = one ear).
