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.
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!
