These cupcakes with "cobwebs" on the top make a perfect spooky treat for your favorite ghouls.

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg. (18.25 oz.) devil's food or yellow cake mix
  • 2 (2.1 oz. each) NESTLÉ BUTTERFINGER Candy Bar, chopped
  • 1 container (16 oz.) prepared vanilla frosting
  • 1 cup (6 oz.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  • 1 small tube white decorator icing or gel
  • 1 pkg. (1.38 oz.) NESTLÉ GOOBERS Milk Chocolate-Covered Peanuts

Directions

PREPARE cake mix batter according to package directions; add chopped Butterfinger to batter. Bake according to directions for 24 cupcakes. Cool completely. Frost cupcakes.

PLACE morsels in small, heavy-duty plastic bag. Microwave on HIGH (100%) power for 45 seconds; knead. Microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, kneading until smooth. Cut small corner from bag; squeeze to pipe concentric circles on top of frosting. Using wooden pick or tip of knife, pull tip through chocolate from center to last circle to create a cobweb effect.

MAKE 2 dots using decorator icing on each of 24 Goobers to resemble spider eyes. Place in center of each cobweb.
