Halloween Monster Cupcakes

Boo! Halloween is less than a week away and we are still scrambling with our costumes.

Well, we have Autumn’s all set as she is going at Minnie Mouse – of course! But Price and I are trying to figure out what to do for us. Get dressed up? Skip it? Do a family theme? Do whatever?

Ultimately, it will be fun as Autumn will love it, so it will be great but right now I’m all over the place.

Don’t get me wrong, I love Halloween but the dressing up part leaves me all panic-y until the last minute. We’ve had years when we have gone all out for parties but the past 3 years have been hard with either being super pregnant, having a wee one, and now a toddler who gets to bed at 6.30. Limits out trick or treating time, plus not many people give out candy by us, which is why we don’t get many, which is why I say to myself, why bother dressing up? I’m just in a quasi sick funk this week and need to shake it off!!

What are you doing? Are you getting dressed up? Skipping it? Handing out candy? Turning the light off?

I recently brought these Monster Cupcakes to Autumn’s daycare for the kids to enjoy. They enjoyed them as a fun afternoon treat to celebrate the upcoming Halloween.

These cupcakes are really easy to make. You can follow my instructions and use a boxed mix and cans of frosting, or you can make it all homemade. It just depends on your preference (and time constraints). You really can’t go wrong with how you decorate them either. It’s fun to be creative. Plus you can def involve kids!

Halloween Monster Cupcakes

Makes 18 cupcakes

Ingredients

  • 1 box of cake mix for the cupcakes, and accompanying ingredients
  • 2 containers of frosting in bright colors
  • 5 Twizzlers’ Pull and Peels candies
  • 36+ eye candies

Process

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line 18 cavities of 2 muffin tins with cupcake liners.
  2. Prepare the cake mix according to the package instructions.
  3. Evenly portion out the batter in the 18 cupcake liners. Bake according to package instructions. (As you are putting a bit more batter in each cupcake to make 18, instead of 24, it might take a bit linger than the package instructions.)
  4. Once the cupcakes have fully cooled, frost half with one color, and the other half with the other color.
  5. Cut the Twizzlers in half, then half, and half again to create 8 1″-long pieces. Either fray the pieces by separating the 9 ‘fibers’ while leaving a bit connected at one end. Or completely separate the 9 ‘fibers’.
  6. Decorate each cupcakes with 2-3 candy eyes and the Twizzlers pieces to make fun hair!
