Chocolate Eyeball Halloween Cupcakes
Hey Everyone! How’s your October going?
I’ve been really into “cooking the seasons” on Life’s Little Sweets lately, which has been fun and a great way to enjoy the seasons.
An example of this would be my last #FoodieMamas recipe post, Halloween Fruit and Nut Chocolate Mummy Bark.
I recently contributed this Chocolate Eyeball Halloween Cupcakes recipe to the SoFabFood blog for the Halloween season and I am sharing about it here on LLS as I usually do when I do a guest post there.
Believe it or not, this is the first cupcake recipe that I have published, I find it strange that I haven’t done more cupcakes since I love doing dessert recipes.
I love watching “Cupcake Wars” with my nieces when I visit them and my daughter has been asking for cupcakes more and more, so chances are you will be seeing more cupcakes come across the blog.
I love that cupcakes are an individual serving and a chance to be super creative.
- Chocolate-Covered Peanut Butter Cheez-Its
- Matcha Rice Krispie Treats
- Jello Poke Cake
- Crème de Menthe Iced Coffee
- Dragon Fruit Simple Syrup
Just a warning, this is a “frosting lovers” cupcake recipe, so those of you that enjoy the corner piece of cake with all the frosting or could lick out the bowl of frosting – this is the recipe for you.
If you are not as keen on frosting, feel free to dial it back and just frost the top, as I explain in the recipe post.
These Chocolate Eyeball Cupcakes are great along with coffee or a big glass of milk.
Here’s a description of Chocolate Eyeball Halloween Cupcakes from SoFabFood:
These Chocolate Eyeball Halloween Cupcakes are the perfect sweet treat for a Halloween-themed party or a fun activity to make with kids. Candy “eyeballs”, Halloween-themed sprinkles, with orange and white cream cheese frosting make these a special, seasonal dessert.
This recipe is inspired by a cake recipe already here on Life’s Little Sweets.
I slightly modified the cake part of the recipe from my Chocolate Orange Almond Cake (DF) recipe and it has a new cream cheese frosting recipe which is very tasty and flexible in that it can be used for a variety of desserts – definitely a keeper!
So does anyone have any Halloween plans?
What are your Halloween traditions?
My husband Eric’s Birthday is in October so we have multiple activities this month surrounding Halloween.
