Halloween: Bat and Skull Cupcakes

Try making these simple Halloween cupcakes.

For the bats, use a Hersey kiss on its side for the body and fudge-stripe cookies cut in half for the bat wings.

For the skulls, take 1/2 of a marshmallow tucked inside the edge of the cupcake paper (after baking!) to form the jaw. Then use Hershey kisses for eyes, a chocolate chip for "nose", and little snips of solid chocolate to make the "teeth."

I used to make a batch of these every year for my now 20-year old daughter to take to school. She still asks for them, to share with her friends.

These are so cute, thanks for sharing. I'm not surprised your kids still ask for them :)

I think it might have seen the skulls on ThriftyFun as I found some instructions posted a few years ago. Here is the link.
