I recruited the engineer hubby to pipe in the "concentric" circles, and the kids to place the candies on top, and it turned into a family affair! Brought them to my Jazzercise Halloween class and it was a hit, both in taste and in looks!

my kids loved the design, it was very easy and fun to make. Instead of Goobers I use spider rings.

love the idea of putting butterfinger pieces in a cupcake, YUM! I like the cobwebs better though, if you use chocolate to frost, and melted white baking chocolate for the web!

My grandchildren love this recipe. It was a a hit. Will be making this in October and the kids special night on trick or treat.

Great way to have fun with the kids! My grandaughter was having a Halloween Party and we made these! What a hit to make and to eat! Thanks for the idea....

these are an easy and fun treat for the little ones to enjoy.they also love to help bake and decorate them even more.

I have two grandbabies a little boy 4 and a little girl 6 who love to help me bake. we made the cupcakes and had a messy ball. It was so easy to follow kid friendly the kind we love to try together,he fingured everything then tasted as we mixed and baked, My 6 a little baker but like all guys he took the credit that they were great,Spooky and fun, oh and GOOD we had so much fun we will do this every year, hopefully next year without so much little fingering, but maybe that was after all what made then so good the extra LOVE added. one Happy NINI
