  • 1 Line cookie sheet with plastic wrap. Place white chocolate baking bar in medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH for 30 seconds.

  • 4 In medium saucepan, heat semisweet chocolate and butter over low heat until chocolate has softened and butter is melted; mix well. Dip top of each cooled cupcake in glaze.

Sprinkle with edible glitter; cover with sheet of waxed paper. With rolling pin, press glitter into surface of white chocolate mixture. With sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut mixture into 3/8 to 1/2-inch-wide strips to form ribbons; shape into bows. Top each cupcake with bow.
