Equipment

  • Mini Cupcake Liners (24)
  • Mini Cupcake Pan
  • Mixing Bowl

Ingredients

  • 15.25 ounces Devils Food Cake Mix
  • 16 ounces chocolate frosting Reserve 2 Tablespoons in a plastic bag for your glue
  • 1 cup chocolate sprinkles
  • 24 mini marshmallows
  • ¼ cup mini M&Ms
  • 5 pieces red pull n peel licorice

Instructions

  • PREPARE THE CAKE MIX ACCORDING TO THE PACKAGE INSTRUCTIONS.
  • LINE MINI CUPCAKE PAN WITH SMALL PAPER-LINERS. FILL LINER WITH ABOUT 1 TABLESPOON OF BATTER
  • BAKE IN A PREHEATED 350°F FOR ABOUT 10 TO 12 MINUTES OR UNTIL NO LONGER GOOEY IN THE MIDDLE. WATCH THEM CLOSE SO THEY DON'T BURN. TRANSFER TO A WIRE RACK, AND COOL COMPLETELY.
  • SPREAD THE TOPS OF THE CUPCAKES WITH THE FROSTING. THEN, COAT THE TOPS WITH THE CHOCOLATE SPRINKLES.
  • CUT THE MARSHMALLOWS IN HALF CROSSWISE. USING THE RESERVED FROSTING IN A BAG - CUT A SMALL HOLE IN THE CORNER OF THE BAG. ATTACH TWO HALVED MARSHMALLOW PIECES TO EACH CUPCAKE AS EYES. DOT THE CENTER OF EACH MARSHMALLOW PIECE WITH FROSTING AND ATTACH M&M?S. MAKE SURE THE M&M'S ARE FACING IN SO THEY DON'T HAVE M'S ON THEIR EYES.
  • CUT EACH LICORICE LACE INTO ONE INCH PIECES. PRESS FOUR HOLES INTO 2 SIDES OF EACH CUPCAKE USING THE TOOTHPICK. INSERT A LICORICE PIECE INTO EACH HOLE FOR EACH SPIDER?S LEGS. I USED 8 PIECES FOR 8 LEGS.

Notes

QUICK TIP : IF YOU PUT ON THICK FROSTING, IT WILL BE EASIER TO STICK YOUR LICORICE LEGS IN
