This Halloween turn store bought treats into adorably cute and slightly scary cupcake toppers. It’s easy to make a whole pack of these Reese’s Cup Werewolf Cupcakes for this fun holiday.
Don’t you just love these little guys?
If you would have walked into the room while I was making these Halloween treats you would have seen a big toothy grin on my face and my eyes as big as the moon. I was having so much fun creating these cupcakes that I even let out a little howl.
I hope when you make these yummy holiday desserts that you have so much fun that you feel like howling too.
I was having such a good time that I decided to make two versions of these Reese’s Cup Werewolf Cupcakes.
Some are furry and some are smooth. The furry ones take just a little bit more time to create than the plain ones, but both are equally cute.
Here’s a video showing you how to make the smooth version.
To make these sweet Werewolf Cupcakes:
- Attach a Mini Reese’s Cup snout, a black candy nose, two yellow candy eyes to the front of a Reese’s Cup using melted Light Cocoa Candy Melts.
- Cut two ears from Light Cocoa Candy Melt wafers and attach them to the Reese’s Cup using more melted Candy Melts.
- Pipe on fangs using Bright White Candy Melts.
- Press the werewolf onto a chocolate cupcake that is frosted with a swirl of chocolate frosting.
- Press a Whopper (malted milk ball) onto each side of the cupcake and attach a bloody candy bone.
If you want to make the furry version of these Reese’s Cup Werewolf Cupcakes follow the instructions below.
- light cocoa candy melts, melted
- 1 full size Reese's Cup
