I posted a version of this last year on my other two blogs, Murderous Musings/TeamBuilding Talk and Mystery Fanfare, but this is so relevant to this blog, because I'm always... DyingforChocolate.
Being that Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, I'll be having a lot of links and recipes. The internet is filled with great Halloween chocolate treats, but this is one of my favorites. I was pretty sure these scary tombstones was originally from a Martha Stewart article or website, but I've been making them so long, I wasn't sure. Yep! Credit Martha Stewart.
These spooky Halloween cupcakes are fun to make and eat. Use any one of the following decorating ideas on its own, or put several together to create a tray of different treats. Easy to bake, you can use any devil's food cake recipe.
To make a cupcake cemetery, spread devil's food cupcakes with chocolate icing. Dip the top of each frosted cupcake in crushed chocolate wafers to look like dirt, then insert chocolate shortbread-cookie tombstones, piping them with scary messages like "Boo!" or "R.I.P." in royal icing.
Top more devil's food cupcakes with chocolate ganache and chocolate-wafer "dirt," make a hole in the center of each cupcake with your finger, and put in half a gummi worm to look like it's coming out of the hole!
Happy Halloween! Boo!!!
