PEEPS Tombstone Cupcakes: Boo!

I am such a sucker for PEEPS! Such a versatile treat. That's why I always love when PEEPS introduces a new holiday PEEPS product. These Marshmallow Tombstones are really fun! you can throw them in your cocoa, add them to S'mores..or use them decorate brownies and cakes or these PEEPS Tombstone Cupcakes for Halloween!This recipe from Betty Crocker uses Betty Crocker SuperMoist Devil's Food Cake Mix, and, as with most recipes, you can make your own chocolate cupcake batter and frosting. These are so tasty and easy!

PEEPS ® Tombstone Cupcakes
(makes 24 cupcakes)

1 box Betty Crocker SuperMoist Devil's Food cake mix
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
1 container Betty Crocker Rich & Creamy chocolate frosting
1 cup finely crushed creme-filled Oreos (8 cookies)
24 PEEPS® Marshmallow Tombstones

Heat oven to 375°F. Place paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups. Make cake batter as directed on box. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups. Bake as directed on box for cupcakes. Cool in pans 10 minutes; remove from pans to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

Frost cupcakes with chocolate frosting. Sprinkle cookie crumbs on large plate. Carefully dip cupcake tops into crumbs to look like dirt (or sprinkle over). Place PEEPS® Marshmallow Tombstone on top of each cupcake.
