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!|
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!
