Gummy Worm Halloween Cupcakes

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.

Makes about 24 cup cakes.  Enjoy.
