Creepy Cupcakes

These creepy cupcakes are the perfect snack for a Halloween Party or just for enjoying while lazing on the couch in your pjs watching a horror movie. Depends on what type of person you are (I happen to be the latter).

For a really Halloween-y look, I suggest dying the batter orange or green, which would look awesome with dark chocolate chips. I had planned to do this, however I realised halfway through the process that I had no orange food colouring. As you can see from the photo below and the batter’s greyish corpse-like colour , my dye-it-purple-instead backup plan failed miserably. That being said, they still tasted delicious!

  • 175g softened butter
  • 3 eggs
