Recipe Tips


Prepare cake batter as directed on package. Spoon into 24 paper-lined muffin cups. Bake as directed on package for cupcakes. Cool completely. 


Spread frosting evenly onto tops of cupcakes. 


Melt chocolate as directed on package; cool slightly.  Reserve 2 tsp. chocolate for later use.  Use remaining chocolate to drizzle 8 lines onto top of each cupcake to resemble the legs of a spider. 


Top each cupcake with 1 cookie for the spider's body, gently pressing cookie into frosting to secure.  Use some of the reserved chocolate to attach 2 eyes to each cookie for the spider's eyes.
