You know your week is going to be a GREAT one when it starts off with cupcakes :) These are super spooky cupcakes that turned out even more scary than I ever imagined!
To make these spooky treats, I used a boxed cake mix and frosting - both chocolate!
Then you'll need some chopped up white chocolate covered pretzels for the bones and crushed Oreo cookies for the dirt (remove the filling, and crush them up as good as possible). You'll also want to cut out and mount each grave cupcake topper (free download is below) onto a wooden pick.
Frost you're cupcakes... yummy!!
Dip each frosted cupcake into the crushed Oreo cookies.
Now, insert your grave into your cupcake, towards the back...
Don't forget the "bones"! Add some of the chopped white chocolate covered pretzels into the dirt... yikes!
Take these cupcakes to the next level by adding a skull - I found these at our local Michaels Craft Store in the baking section.
YIKES! Talk about spooky!!
