Spider Web Cupcakes

These cupcakes were super easy to make and so delicious! Perfect for halloween. But aside from the creepy design, the best part of the cake was the taste - when you bite on it, you get a yummy dose of fudge and chocolate morsels in the middle. Thank you, Duncan Hines. ;-)

What you need:
  • 1 box (21 oz) Duncan Hines Triple Chocolate cake mix
  • 1 cup of water
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • chocolate frosting
  • 2 Tbsp chocolate morsels
  • decorating icing (white)

What to do:

Preheat oven to 350°F. Put 14 to 16 cupcake liners in two muffin pans. 

Mix batter according to directions. Spoon batter into muffin tin, about 2/3rds of the way full. 

Just before going into the oven. Pardon my mesiness!
Mix chocolate pouch (already included in the package) as directed on box. Add the chocolate morsels and mix well.  Spoon a heaping teaspoon of this chocolate fudge on top of the batter. Do not mix into the batter. Allow the fudge to sit on the surface of the cupcake.

Bake for 21-24 minutes. Cupcakes will be golden brown and will spring back when touched in center. Remove from the pans and cool for about 5 to 10 minutes.

Glaze your cupcakes with the chocolate frosting. Then squeeze circles of the white decorating icing on top of the chocolate glaze. Pull a toothpick from the center outward to make a web. Enjoy!

Tips, Tricks and Tweaks:

1. Use white frosting and brown decorating icing for the spider web. Or use orange. Actually, any color will do!
2. Make mini spiders on top of the webs by using a gumdrop for the body and some Twizzlers for legs. (I didn't cause I don't like spiders haha).
3. Use halloween cupcake liners!  

Mmmm, fudge!
