Dirty Halloween Cupcakes

What comes to mind when you think about Halloween? Candy, costumes, pumpkin carving, creepy creatures...

For my work's Halloween party, I signed up to take dessert. Surprised? Chocolate is popular at work so I made chocolate cupcakes. To give them a Halloween twist, I used chocolate "dirt" and creepy worms for decoration.

What's your favorite Halloween treat?

Worms and dirt cupcakes:

chocolate cupcakes


chocolate cookies

gummy worms

Bake chocolate cupcakes according to directions and wait for them to cool before decorating. (If you don't, the icing will melt) Then ice the cupcakes with the frosting of your choice.

Finely chop chocolate cookies (I used chocolate Oreos.) to be used as dirt. Spread cookie crumbs on frosted cupcake. Then place a gummy worm on top.

You're done! It is an easy idea to dress up your Halloween cupcakes.


  1. This is suck a cute idea. I am going to add it to my activity list with my nephew, plus he love gummy worms =)
