Halloween Owl Cupcakes

4.5 stars based on 4 votes

Here’s a super-simple and fun idea for Halloween cupcakes. They’re great for school parties, and easy enough even for the pre-school set. My daughter and her friend had so much fun making them after school yesterday. Clearly, we’re getting ready for the Halloween sugar rush at our house: that’s my daughter below with a cupcake in one hand, a lollipop in the other, and cookie on her shirt no less. I think that’s what happiness looks like :)

To make these cupcakes, you’ll need chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting, Oreo cookies, black decorating gel and orange or yellow candies, such as Reese’s Pieces or M&Ms.

ingredients

Simply separate the Oreos and press the halves with the filling onto the frosting to make the eyes. Squeeze out a large circle of black decorating gel to make the eyeballs, and add a candy nose in the middle.

That’s all there is to it. I think these are so cute!

    The owls are so cute! With a partner I made 125 of these for a Halloween party at my daughters school. What a hit! They were pretty simple to assemble. Making sure the Owls looked nice and “white” was the only challenge. Thank you for sharing!
