I LOVE Halloween – not for the scary, spooky side, but for the cute decorations and delicious treats. I saw these cute melted witch brownies on pinterest, and I knew I needed to make them.
While I love brownies – I absolutely LOVE cupcakes, so I switched out the brownie for a chocolate chocolate chip cupcake with marshmallow buttercream frosting and green, white chocolate ganache.
They may sound difficult, but they were so easy to make. I sent them to my husband’s work, and all his co-workers gave them FIVE STARS. They would be perfect for your next Halloween party.
How to make spooky halloween Melted Witch cupcakes:
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line pans with cupcake liners.
Step 2: In a large bowl, combine the eggs, oil, milk, sour cream, and vanilla extract and mix until thoroughly combined.
Step 3: Add in the cake mix and stir until smooth. Fold in chocolate chips.
Step 4: Fill cupcake liners about 3/4 of the way full, then bake for 18-22 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Step 5: Whip the butter on medium-high for a good 4-5 minutes, stopping to scrape the bowl once or twice.
Step 6: Reduce the speed to low, and slowly add the powdered sugar. You can add more or less powdered sugar depending on how thick you want your icing.
Step 7: Once the powdered sugar is all incorporated, add in vanilla extract and marshmallow creme.
Step 8: Pipe frosting onto each cupcake. You can use an actual piping bag, or you can put the frosting in a ziplock bag and cut the corner. Then squeeze the bag as you would a piping bag.
Step 9: Break the white chocolate into small pieces and place in a heat-resistant bowl.
Step 10: In a small saucepan, heat the heavy cream until just boiling, then remove from heat and pour over white chocolate.
Step 11: Mix thoroughly until white chocolate is completely melted. Add green food coloring, 1-2 drops at a time, until the white chocolate reaches your desired coloring.
Step 12: Drizzle ganache over frosting. Glue witch boots to the straw halves, and stick two legs into each cupcake with the boots facing out.
