Bring a batch of Spider Cupcakes to your next Halloween party! Spider Cupcakes are both trick and treat: spiders fashioned from cookies and licorice will lure guests to these scrumptious chocolate cupcakes on the Halloween treat table.
24 vanilla creme-filled chocolate sandwich cookies
12 pieces black string licorice (32 inches each)
48 miniature candy-coated chocolate pieces
Let's Make It
Prepare cake batter as directed on package; blend in dry pudding mix. Spoon into 24 paper-lined muffin cups. Bake as directed on package for cupcakes. Cool completely.
Dissolve drink mix in hot water. Stir into frosting in bowl until well blended. Use to frost cupcakes, reserving some of the frosting for attaching the decorations.
Cut each licorice piece into 16 (2-inch) lengths; set aside. Place 1 cookie on top of each cupcake; insert 4 licorice pieces into frosting on each side of cookie for the spider's legs. Use reserved frosting to attach chocolate pieces to tops of cookies for the spiders' eyes.
With their built-in portion control, these spooky cupcakes are great treats to serve at a kids' Halloween party.
Cupcakes can be decorated up to 8 hours before serving.
