Witch's Cupcakes

Our spooky-looking Halloween Witch's Cupcakes will be the hit of your ghostly gathering. These scrumptious Halloween cupcakes that are decorated to look like witches are wickedly good!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (18.25-ounce) package chocolate cake mix, batter prepared according to package directions
  • 1 (16.5-ounce) container white frosting
  • 1/8 teaspoon green food color
  • 24 chocolate sugar cones
  • 24 chocolate wafers
  • 72 candy corn candies
What To Do:
  1. Line two 12-cup cupcake pans with paper liners. Pour batter into pans and bake according to package directions; let cool.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine frosting and green food color; mix well. Using a serrated knife, cut sugar cones in half crosswise; reserve wide halves for another use.
  3. Using frosting as glue, attach pointed bottom half of each cone to a chocolate wafer, forming witch's hats (see photo). Frost cupcakes with remaining frosting and place a witch's hat on top of each cupcake. Make eyes by pushing 2 pieces of candy corn pointed-side up into each cupcake, and lay one candy corn flat to make each nose. Serve, or cover loosely until ready to serve.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I made these for my sons 11th birthday party for his class, I was unable to find chocolate sugar cones too, so I bought regular sugar cones and a hard shell chocolate sauce for ice cream and cut the cones down to size rolled them in the chocolate sauce and put them into the fridge to harden. It worked out pretty well, I hope the kids enjoy them too, hope this tip helps you all out.

I can't wait to make these but I am having a terrible time finding chocolate sugar cones. Could you please help me with this thank you Nonnie Meelia

I am having the same problem. Did you ever find them...

with 32 grandkids these will be a hit..
