These Halloween bat cupcakes are so easy, they’ll fly out of your kitchen. Just like that bad pun should have.

What You Need: 1 cupcake; white or cream cheese frosting; 1 chocolate-covered thin mint candies (these are by Necco); 1 mini Oreo cookie; two red hot candies (cinnamon imperials).

How to Make It: Frost cupcake. Use dabs of icing to secure red hots to Oreo for bat eyes. Place in center of cupcake. Cut mint in half using knife. Add, at an angle with cut sides facing up, to left and right of Oreo for wings.

What You Need: 1 cupcake (baked and cooled); frosting tinted purple (you can mix red and blue food coloring); 2 purple or black gumdrops; 2 red M&Ms; 2 white candies such as Good & Plenty or Tic Tacs; red fruit rolls.
How to Make It: Frost cupcake and before it gets too firm, stick about a 4-inch length of fruit roll (we used Fruit by the Foot) on left and right side for wings. You could cut it into a more-authentic wing shape if you’d like. Add gumdrops for ears, M&Ms for blood-red eyes and white candies for fangs and you’re ready to scare your guests!
