Make these scary cupcakes with chocolate cake mix, candies and marshmallows – perfect dessert treat on Halloween.

Ingredients

1
box (15.25 oz) Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ milk chocolate cake mix
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
3/4
cup butter, softened
1/2
cup shortening
4
cups powdered sugar
3/4
teaspoon vanilla
60
brown candy-coated chocolate candies
24
miniature marshmallows

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Place paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups or spray with cooking spray. Make and bake cake mix as directed on box for cupcakes, using water, oil and eggs. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pans to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 2 In large bowl, beat butter and shortening with electric mixer on medium speed 2 minutes or until creamy. Slowly beat in powdered sugar and vanilla. Mound about 2 tablespoons frosting on each cupcake. Using fingers, make deep indentations in sides of frosting to look like skull.
  • 3 Place 2 chocolate candies on each cupcake for eyes. Cut remaining chocolate candies in half; attach for nose with cut sides in frosting. With dampened kitchen scissors, cut each marshmallow into 5 slices; arrange slices on cupcakes to look like teeth.

For a spooky, fun effect, use other colors of candy-coated chocolate candies for eyes.
