Spooky Halloween Cupcakes

So last year on Halloween Gigi was 6 weeks old. I had read that 6 weeks can be the peak of baby fussiness…but I wasn’t prepared for the reality of Ginger crying 6 hours…straight. Ok, ok, there were a few breaks when she would collapse and fall asleep, but then she would wake up screaming and would again wail for another hour.

Needless to say, it was a scary Halloween.

But! I did manage to make one treat last year, and it was pretty fun and yummy so I thought I’d share.

I used this Candy Apple Cupcakes Recipe from Honest Fare.  So I want to be very clear this isn’t my creation, and give credit where credit is due! But these are my pictures.

I like how the candy coating looks like dripping blood. I think it would be cute to make these for a party and put little fake vampire teeth in them!

They are fun to eat because the top is like a candy apple at a fair. It makes an awesome CRUNCH. The batter comes out SUPER thick. So thick you’ll think something is wrong. But it’s not. It’s really really right and super yummy. The cupcake is a like a chunky apple muffin.

And here’s a picture of what we did with Gigi in between hysterical bouts of crying.
