Hello my dearies! Today I made some cute little Halloween cupcakes! :) It was huge fun making them since I haven’t been doing anything with a face on it for at least 13 years? :) The recipe for the cupcakes itself is really tasty and I kept it to the half amount since I try to only use as much as I can eat or everyone else wants to eat :) And less sugar is always good as we know! But this is a basic dough recipe and can go with any toppings.

And this is all you need:

  • 260g flour
  • 240g SugarIMG_0371
  • 1 packe vanille sugar
  • 1 ½ Teaspoon Backpulver
  • 1 Pinch of salt
  • 160g Butter (room temperature)
  • 2 Eggs(room temperature)
  • 4Tablespoons of cocoa
  • 10 Tablespoons of milk (room temperature)

On the picture you see that I halfed everything but the original recipe incluedes all the amounts mentioned above :)

Lets start:

1) Take a bowl and add butter, sugar and vanilla sugar together stir it until it gets crumbly. Then add the egg into it.

2) Mixx cocoa, packing soda, a bit salt and the flour all together in an extra bowl and slowly add it into the dough by also adding milk into it.

Dough is now ready to rumble! :) Place the dough into the cupcake plate, leave it in the pre-heated oven by 180° degrees for about 20-25 minutes.

Now its time for the decoration by using chocalate. I used dark chocalte but you can use any type you want.

Take how much you want and melt it together with a bit of butter, sugar powder and cream.

Once it’s all melty and yummy looking, put it away for a short while to let the bulk get a bit hard.


IMG_0378Decorade the buscuits by cutting the edges with a sharp knife slowly away. I used a sugar decoration stick to draw the lines of the grave. Its fully chocalte :)

IMG_0379 Be carefull by pressing a hole into the cupcake. Mine used to break all the time, but     thanks god I made more than 3 cupcakes, so it’s ok if one is damaged ;) Then put in a candy worm or a tiny snake.

IMG_0380For the earth on the grave I used the oreo cookies by removing the top from the white stuff inside and put them all the black parts in small bag and crushed them. It looks so real :)

IMG_0392 For this cute little spider I used some smarties and some licorice strawberry sticks.

You can use all kinds of candys to make it look a scarry but tasty cupcake :) I hope you enjoyed this one! Don’t forget to leave me a comment if you find this recipe usefull or if you just liked it :) Would make me really happy hearing from you! Also please let me know, if you have any questions or if some instructions weren’t clear enough, you are always welcome to :)
