Spooky Spider Cupcakes

Spooked at the thought of all the Halloween temptations we are about to experience at the scariest season of the year?

Well you need not fear – these Spooky Spider Cupcakes are lighter on the waistline, and are sure to be all the fright at your next Halloween party.

The cupcakes themselves are made with just THREE ingredients: boxed cake mix, canned pumpkin and WATER! The topping is a chocolate glaze, just a smear – just enough to help the sprinkles and eyeballs adhere to the cupcake.

And the verdict in my house, everyone thought they were SPOOK-tacular!
