What’s the Project? If you need a cute and fun Halloween treat idea, these Halloween spider cupcakes are easy to make and are perfect for kids or for parties. You’re going to love making them!
I’ve got a major thing for making cupcakes. Irresistible, decadent, chocolately cupcakes. My friends know it about me, in fact, do you think that’s why they are my friends? Do they just love me for my cupcakes? Hmmmm…..
Either way, it’s fine, because I’ve got to have someone to bake for right? I can’t eat them all myself.
Here’s a fun spin on a regular cupcake-I made super cute Halloween spider cupcakes. They’re easy to make, even something that your kids could help with. And you could make the cupcake part any flavor you want!
They’re cute and simple. Just a simple chocolate cupcake and Tootsie Roll legs. With cute edible eyeballs. You can make them for the kids or you can let the kids make their own!
Halloween Spider Cupcakes:
- Chocolate cupcakes (Here’s my favorite Chocolate Cupcake Recipe)
- Chocolate frosting
- Tootsie Rolls
- Candy Eyes (I got mine at Target-craft stores have them as well)
- Spiderweb cupcakes wrappers (mine are from Michael’s)
- Black treat bags or boxes (if you want to make the cute treat bags)
- Spiderweb stickers (affiliate link)
Spider Cupcake Baking Instructions:
Bake your cupcakes and frost them with chocolate frosting. Add candy eyes.
Grab your Tootsie Rolls and unwrap them. Place about 4 at a time on a plate and microwave them for 10 seconds. This will make them easier to work with. Roll them into a long leg and cut each one in half. Bend it and place it on a cookie sheet:
Stick it in the freezer for a few minutes to firm them up. Then slide them into your cupcakes:
To make the cute treat bags, you will need spider web stickers. If you have a Cricut you can make your own, otherwise, grab them on Amazon or at a craft store.
I hope you have a blast making these darling Halloween spider cupcakes and taking them to your friends. Then maybe they’ll just love you for your cupcakes too.
