Creepy Halloween Cupcakes Recipe
What's your Take?

These sweet spooks are horribly appealing to boys and ghouls. Use a favorite cupcake recipe, then set your guests to work.

What you'll need

  • 24 baked cupcakes
  • 24 Nutter-Butter cookies
  • Chocolate frosting
  • Vanilla frosting
  • Tube of chocolate decorator's icing
  • 2 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup chopped peanuts or crispy rice cereal
  • 3/4 cup dry chow mein noodles
  • 24 baked cupcakes
  • White frosting

How to make it

  1. Coat each baked cupcake with chocolate frosting and partially insert a Nutter-Butter cookie into the top. Frost the remaining cookie with vanilla frosting. Draw a spooky expression on each ghost with the decorator's icing. Makes 24.

  2. Make the spiders by combining the chocolate chips and milk in a glass bowl. Microwave on high for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring frequently, until smooth. Stir in the peanuts or cereal and chow mein noodles.

  3. Drop by teaspoons onto waxed paper. Stick on extra noodles for spider legs and chill. Frost the cupcakes white. Then top each cupcake with a spider. Makes 24.
