Ingredients

  • 1 pkg. (18.25 oz.) devil's food or yellow cake mix
  • 1 container (16 oz.) prepared vanilla frosting
  • 12 NESTLÉ CRUNCH Fun-Size Candy Bars
  • 1 small tube white decorator icing
  • 3 NESTLÉ BUTTERFINGER Fun-Size Candy Bars, chopped
  • 1 bag (6.5 oz.) gummy bugs or other gummy candies

Directions

PREPARE cake mix according to package directions using one 13 x 9-inch baking pan. Cool completely in pan. Invert cake onto serving platter. Frost cake, using a little more frosting than usual on top ("tombstones" will be pushed into frosting).

WRITE spooky words such as "RIP" or "BOO" on Crunch bars using tube icing. Let sit for a few minutes to dry.

PRESS Crunch bars into cake to create "tombstones". Sprinkle chopped Butterfinger bars next to tombstones to create "dirt". Creatively place gummy bugs over top of cake.
