Dare to Scare with Frightful Fare
(Family Features) From little monsters to grown-up goblins, Halloween is when sweets truly take center stage.
This year, enjoy a Family Bake-tivity. On the night before Halloween, gather the kids to bake these simple but eye-catching cupcakes adorned with “cobwebs.”
1 package (18.25 ounces) devil’s food or yellow cake mix
2 (2.1 ounces each) Nestlé Butterfinger Candy Bars, chopped
1 container (16 ounces) prepared vanilla frosting
1 cup (6 ounces) Nestlé Toll House Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
1 small tube white decorator icing or gel
1 package (1.38 ounces) Nestlé Goobers Milk Chocolate-Covered Peanuts
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.
