  • 1 pkg. (18.25 oz.) yellow or vanilla cake mix
  • 6 individual boxes Orange NERDS from Spooky WONKA NERDS candy bag
  • 1 container (16 oz.) prepared vanilla frosting
  • 24 NESTLÉ CRUNCH Fun-Size Candy Bars
  • 1 small tube decorator icing

PREPARE cake mix batter according to package directions; add Nerds to batter. Bake according to directions for 24 cupcakes. Cool completely. Frost cupcakes, 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 decorator icing. Let sit for a few minutes to dry.

PRESS Crunch bars into cupcakes to create "tombstones." Creatively place Skulls N' Bones next to "tombstones."
