Halloween Recipe: Spooky Alien Cupcakes

This recipe is pretty simple, actually. And ridiculously fun for your children to decorate.

Halloween Spooky Alien Cupcakes

Pick out (or make from scratch) your favorite chocolate cake mix, poured into either a regular cupcake pan or a mini cupcake pan (as we did), frost ’em with your favorite frosting (colored or otherwise), and decorate as you wish. The crazier the better. WA-LA!

We chose this organic cake mix, instead of making it from scratch, to help simplify prep time for our Halloween Party.

There’s no wrong way to decorate your alien cupcake, so let your imagination run wild! You can really dress your cupcake up with sprinkles and any type of candy you desire. We chose to decorate them with what we already had on hand – mini marshmallows and mini chocolate chips, with homemade whipped cream as the frosting.

Having the kids help you decorate and come up with their own creation is part of the fun! Enjoy yourselves, and let me know what you come up with!
