Fall is officially here and at my house we are getting in the Halloween spirit already.
My youngest has an obsession with scary and goury things so when i got the letter for the fall dance at his school, I knew i had to make a scary treat for the kids.
Every year I like to make something, and not tooting my own horn (ok.. maybe I am just a little), but my treats always sell out the fastest.
Last year I made little monster cupcakes with edible candy eyes and they actually looked like little alien monsters. The year before that was Jack Skellington sugar cookies which was fitting because that was my oldest’s Halloween costume that year. The year before that were pumpkin cupcakes…
This is a seriously simple treat, and doesn’t require much artistic ability, but I figured I’d share anyway in case you wanted to make these adorable little monster eyeball Cupcakes!
So, let me start off by saying yes.. the pictures are ehh, and I probably could’ve taken more step photography but honestly, I was rushing and just trying to get done. I had gone to the gym at 6am, then worked a 9 hour day, and just gotten home at the time, plus has dinner going in the oven simultaneously. I love to multitask, it’s one of my talents and I can be a bit hyperactive😀.
Here’s all you need;
I went with classic white cake because hey, eyeballs are white after all.. I’m a little disappointed I couldn’t find the green jelly candy rings because that was my initial plan, but these peach ones came out just fine and they taste super yummy! Did i mention they’re only $1 at the grocery store?
I picked through the m&m bag for only red since I was making scary monster eyes, but brown or any other color would work just as well.
I like them a little bigger for the kids treats for school functions, so i went auth my large baking cups from”if you care” and the color worked well since its a light natural beige and they’re safer for kids because they are free of all chemicals and chlorine.
For the next few steps, that’s where I slacked off. Maybe I was too excited to start decorating but you get the jist. Simple. Creative. Cute. Most important, really yummy!
*Note, I use olive oil in place of vegetable oil because it makes the cupcakes fluffier.
