For some people, Halloween only means scary. That's cuz duh, they haven't met us. Because to us, Halloween means sugar, obvi.

Back in the day, the costume had to be on point yes, but the main event was always how much candy and sweets we collected! A bag full of Reese's was definitely #GOALS.

Making Halloween cupcakes has become somewhat of a tradition around here (because we love eating them). Last year's were spooktacular (check 'em out here) and this year we've made some more that are as wicked!

Here's what you need: 

1. Box cake
2. Piping bag & nozzle
3. Semi-sweet chocolate
4. Decorative icing
5. Cream cheese icing
6. Halloween cupcake liners
7. Toppings of your choice
8. Stencils (scroll to the bottom to print!) & squeeze bottle...like dis ê

Step 1: Follow the instructions for the cake mix on the box.
*Depending on which brand you chose, the ingredients to add might differ!

Step 2: Line your cupcake tray with paper liners and pour the mix in evenly, then bake!

Step 3: While your cupcakes are baking in the oven, prepare your chocolate spooky figures! Melt your semi-sweet chocolate in a double boiler, then pour into a squeeze bottle.

Step 4: Place the stencils you printed under some parchment paper to create the shapes you want.

Step 5: Put it in the freezer for 5 minutes and voila! All your shapes are ready.

Step 6: Add the cream cheese topping into a piping bag with nozzle attached and start piping your cooled-down cupcakes.

Step 7: Now it's time to get creative and to DECORATE!!! Use all the toppings you want to make your cupcakes a Halloween success.
