I'm more than a month early, but I'm getting into the Halloween spirit already. The leaves are changing color and Fall is definitely in the air. I decided to make these fun gummy worm cupcakes with my kids and we had a lot of fun. This is not so much a recipe than a method of decorating cupcakes for a "ghoulish" good time.
1 box yellow, white or chocolate cake mix
1 can of chocolate frosting
1 bag of gummy worms
10-12 Oreo cookies
Prepare the cupcakes per package instructions. Allow to cool well before proceeding to the decorating steps.
In a food processor crumb your Oreo cookies well. The Oreo cookies will represent the dirt. Pour crumbs into a bowl so you can dip your cupcake.
Frost your cupcake well then dip into the bowl of "dirt" Oreo crumbs and cover the top completely.
Place a gummy work on top of each cupcake and Enjoy.
