I don’t know about you, but things get a little bit crazy for Halloween these days. It seems like as the years go by, kids come home with more and more candy. More candy than any mom or dad wants their kid to have hiding underneath their bed!! 

I know people who will let their kids eat as much candy as they want on Halloween night, but the rest of the candy has to be handed over. I know that my kids won’t be keeping all of their candy loot, especially since they are still so young. But what do you do with all of that confiscated candy? 

These cupcakes give you a perfect way to use up some of those leftover chocolate covered caramel and nougat candy bars. Bake up some cupcakes and top them with this fun frosting, made from the candy bars! It tastes a lot like the candy bars, but turned into a cupcake that you can share with neighbors and friends. 

You will need a Betty Crocker Super Moist white cake mix, plus all the ingredients called for on the box. You will also need fun-sized candy bars, butter, milk, vanilla and powdered sugar.
