Easy Halloween Cupcakes

When my kids were younger we used to spend a lot of time choosing exactly the right Halloween Treat to make and bring to class for their yearly Halloween parties.   As they got older,  the planning and choosing seemed to disappear, but the last minute requests for a treat didn’t!   I can’t tell you how many times Easy Halloween Cupcakes  were assembled at the last minute.

This is NOT a from scratch recipes.  These are NOT the best cupcakes you’ll ever eat (I’m being honest)  BUT,  they ARE however extremely EASY to make and with just a few Halloween candies as decorations, some basic piping skills you’ve got a Halloween treat that everyone is proud to send in to school.  


What you need to make Easy Halloween Cupcakes:

  • 12 cupcakes – use any flavor cake mix
  • 2-3 containers icing,  choose your flavour
  • 12 Halloween candy pumpkins; (I use the marshmallow creme ones)


Yield: 12
