Halloween themed Low Fat Chocolate Mummy Cupcakes are a great choice for any Halloween cupcake needs. They are cute, decadent, and as healthy as a cupcake is ever going to get and still be called a cupcake. The simple vanilla frosting gets piped over the cupcake to give it the appearance of a wrapped mummy. Using M&Ms as eyes are a creative choice that allows you to customize the color of each cupcake. You could even make some mummies with spooky red eyes!

The best thing about Halloween (besides the candy) is the creative cupcakes and other treats! These mini cupcakes are chocolate, made using Martha Stewart’s One Bowl cupcake recipe. Once they’re baked, the fun really begins. All that you need to turn these normal cupcakes into tiny mutant spiders is some black sanding sugar, cinnamon candy, marshmallows and black licorice, and a little imagination, of course. Who can resist eating a tiny, creepy spider?

It’s amazing what you can do with a little creativity. These baseball cap cupcakes are easy to create, and only require a little “elbow grease.” You can even use store bought cupcakes if time is a factor, although homemade ones work just as well. Some oblong-shaped cookies, colorful frosting, food coloring (to tint the frosting the right colors in order to represent your favorite team) and a thin frosting tip for the detail work are all that you need!
What’s better than a lightly flavored chocolate cupcake? One that is decorated to resemble Minnie Mouse, of course! This cupcake is just one of the many possible desserts to choose from at Disney’s Polynesian Resort. It consists of a chocolate cupcake with a slight hint of mocha, a ton of chocolate mousse frosting, a ganache-like chocolate coating, a while fondant bow, and, of course, two Oreo cookies perched on top to make the mouse ears. Who can resist such a treat?

Carrot cake cupcakes decorated to look like Easter chicks are the perfect spring treat – and the results are so cute that you may not want to eat them. Start by making the cupcake batter (it consists of flour, brown sugar, shredded carrot, sweetened coconut and crushed pineapple, among other things) and then waiting for the cupcakes to cool. Peek off the wrapper and cover the entire cupcake in cream cheese frosting before rolling it in sweetened coconut. Use some almonds and candies for the beak and eyes. The results are adorable!

Making cute Halloween-themed treats doesn’t need to be complicated. These spooky spider cupcakes are made from a chocolate cake mix (these particular ones use a dark chocolate fudge mix, but the choice is yours), some frosting, and a few easy to assemble toppings. Once the cupcakes are baked and frosted lightly with chocolate glaze, all that need to be added are the chocolate sprinkles (for the spider body), some black string licorice (for the legs) and two white eyeball candies (self-explanatory)!
