Monster Bash

As our countdown to Halloween continues, these sweet treats have been the feature dessert at TWO gatherings in recent weeks.  What can I say, they are just so darn fun to make (and eat) that we had to do an instant repeat so as not to let down the kiddos!

When I found these adorable monster eyeballs by Wilton (available at Michael's), I just knew monster cupcakes were in order.   And to top it off, marshmellow monsters also joined the fun as well. 

After gathering up just a few supplies our scary monster bash was in site.  In addition to cupcake supplies (the standard stuff), you need piping bags for the icing and a few fun frosting tips.  I used Wilton tip 20 and 233 to make my scary monsters.  For the pops, marshmellows, chocolate candy coating and lollipop sticks did the trick. 

Total time?  Well, just a few minutes to decorate these cuties but save extra for munching on them!

Marshmellows dipped in orange color chocolate and sprinkles make a tasty treat!

Wilton tip 20 and 233 save the day to make creative patterns for the monsters shaggy appearance
