Every year for Halloween I throw a little “party” for my kids before they head out trick-or-treating. This consists of a plethora of Halloween-themed foods. This year I am making “Mummy Cupcakes” for our dessert.
For these cupcakes, you need a chocolate cake mix and all the ingredients to make them, buttercream frosting, and M&M candies.
First, make the chocolate cupcakes, following the directions on the package. Then, put your buttercream frosting in a piping bag and cut the tip off the bottom of the bag. After the cupcakes are cooled, you’re going to pipe the frosting on in a zig-zag pattern to make your mummies. Then simply place two colored M&M candies on the cupcakes for the eyes.
These are great to have the kids join you in the kitchen as helpers! My daughter loved putting the eyes on the cupcakes for me. She also enjoyed tasting the chocolate batter as evidenced by the chocolate around her mouth!
I can see these mummy cupcakes being a regular addition to our Halloween party spread! I hope you give these easy and super fun cupcakes a try!!
