Spooky Halloween Cupcakes

In addition to the twins’ birthday party this weekend I also made some cupcakes for my son’s school’s fall festival.  They have a cake walk and the parents donate baked goods that they have either purchased or made.  Last year I made a chocolate chip cake that looked like a jack-o-lantern and a carrot cake with a fall/leaf motif.  By last year’s standards I am skimping a bit, but I am also donating two bags of AVON products for their silent auction.  I sell AVON as a means to actually (try) make money.

I made Black Forest Stuffed Cupcakes (don’t they look great) from allrecipes.com and Oreo Surprise Cupcakes.  Oreo surprise cupcakes are just your favorite chocolate cupcakes with an Oreo cookie in the middle.  I put 1-2 tablespoons of batter in the cupcake liner then the Oreo push down just slightly and top off with more chocolate cake batter.  Kids love them!!  Both kinds of cupcakes are topped with Italian meringue buttercream and Halloween themed sprinkles-bones, eyeballs, spiders, and bats.

All are packaged in these adorable treat boxes with Halloween themed sprinkles that I found at Target.  I think they are going to be a big hit!!
