Halloween Devilish Cupcakes

What you will need: 
  • 1 box of devil's food cupcake mix 
  • Water, Vegetable Oil and Eggs (for the cake mix)
  • 1 bag of Dark Chocolate drops/candy melts
  • 1 tub of Butter cream Frosting
  • Red Food Colouring/Paste

  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Place cupcake cases in a 24 regular size muffin pan cups. 
  2. Make and bake the cupcakes as directed on the box. Cool completely. 
  3. Meanwhile line a baking tray with parchment paper. Melt the dark chocolate using whichever method you prefer. I did it in the microwave using intervals of 15 seconds until completely melted. Place melted chocolate into a resealable sandwich bag. Cut off a tiny corner of the bag and squeeze the bag to pipe the chocolate into devils' horn and tail shapes on the parchment paper. Refrigerate until set. 
  4. At this point you can make your own frosting if you wish, I took the easy route and brought pre-made butter cream frosting. Empty the tub into a bowl and add food colouring. Once mixed pipe or spread mixture onto the cupcakes. 
  5. Place the horns and tail into the frosting on each cupcake.
