Halloween Spider Cupcakes
Makes 24 cupcakes
24 chocolate cupcakes
24 large marshmallows
red or black licorice laces
Spread the tops of the cupcakes with the frosting, reserving about 1/4 cup of the frosting. Coat the tops of the cupcakes with the chocolate sprinkles.
Cut the marshmallows in half crosswise. Take the reserved frosting and put it in a resealable zip top bag. Cut a small hole in one corner. Using the frosting like glue, adhere an M&M to each marshmallow. Using the frosting again, adhere the marshmallow to the cupcake, making the eyes. Use another M&M to make the nose. Repeat on all cupcakes.
Cut each of the licorice laces into 4 equal pieces. Using a toothpick, poke holes in the sides of the cupcakes. Insert the cut licorice into the holes to make the legs. Do 4 legs on each side of the cupcake, making 8 legs per cupcake.
