Today is Halloween and we have a neighborhood party tonight. I am a Christian and this is one of my favorite holidays. I admit it. I like this part of Fall because it incorporates two of my favorite things – cute kids and candy. How could you not love both of those? Both of my kids are dressing up and trick-or-treating. I have their costumes ready but I won’t be surprised if at least one of them throws a hail mary pass in the last seconds of the game. That is just the way it rolls at the Rodi house. Our neighborhood party will have all the kids in the neighborhood dressed up in their costumes trying to win the costume contests, face painting, games and free pizza. Sounds wonderful.
When I saw these cute little ghost cupcakes show up in an email that I got earlier this week, I knew I would have to make them for something. I have asked both kids to help me with them, it is a good memory maker and we can even incorporate some math (in the form of fractions from the measuring devices). I had planned to bring these to the Halloween party tonight but I ended up using all of my vanilla icing for something else but I will be sure to keep this recipe around for next Halloween!
There isn’t really a recipe, more of some instructions on putting them together.
Bake chocolate cupcakes. Attach a marshmallow on top of each and cover with slightly softened vanilla frosting. Add mini chocolate chips for eyes and mouth.
