Melanie LOVES the purple color of the frosting and Finn is just into frosting period (I mean, who isn't, right?). I think the little bones are adorable.

What I really love though is how easy these are to make. In under and hour (and that includes nearly 30 of oven time and cooling), I can create these Halloween inspired cupcakes.

But they look like I spent WAY more time than that one them!

Perfect for a class Halloween party, to share at work, or just for fun at home. I think the little bones are adorable.

Instructions

1. Prepare cupcakes by mixing chocolate cake mix and baking according to cake mix’s directions. You will only need half the batter for this recipe.

2. Allow cupcakes to cool before decorating.

3. Line a clean working surface with wax paper.

4. In a bowl, microwave candy in 30 second intervals until completely melted.

5. Scoop melted candy into a piping bag with Wilton #1 tip attached.

6. To create the bone candies, start by piping out a small heart/v-shape, then pull down to create a line and then pipe out an upside-down heart/v-shape.

7. Repeat until about 120 bones have been piped out.

8. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat together butter, confectioners’ sugar and milk. These ingredients will make up the buttercream frosting.

9. Once the buttercream starts to form, add violet gel food coloring and mix until completely tinted.

10. Scoop buttercream into a piping bag with Wilton tip #12 attached and frost each cupcake.

11. Decorate each cupcake with about 10 bones each.

12. Serve and enjoy!

My favorite kinds of Halloween treats are ones that aren't scary or gross or creepy. I know, I know but it is what it is. I don't do scary or icky.

The coolest part of this (aside from using a chocolate cake mix – HOLLA), is that I can make the melted candy bones the night before. Hell yeah for

I love recipes that allow me to make them in chunks. I never seem to have the time to set aside and make a cute cupcakes recipe from start to finish all in one go. I have two kids who will not leave me alone, KAREN.

I also really like how flexible this recipe is. The ingredients and steps are really basic so you can feel free to change things up to suit your tastes.

Don't like purple? Use some orange food gel coloring instead.

Don't wanna do bones? Use that melted candy to create piped spiders or skulls. Hell, make and entire skeleton, if it floats your boat!
