Monstrously Fun Cupcakes

Monster Cupcakes

We’ve turned the calendars and we’re prepping for Halloween and getting ready to serve up a few fun party ideas that are quick, easy and affordable.  Here’s a simple cupcake that’s fun to make with many steps that can involve children at all ages.  They’ll love serving these up to their friends.  In fact, they’re what we’re sharing this year!

These Three little monsters are great for Halloween fun…

Price Chopper cake mix

Price Chopper mini pretzel sticks

Price Chopper marshmallows, large & mini

Green Frosting

Black gel frosting

White Chocolate melting rounds

White Chocolate morsels

  1. Make the cupcakes as directed on the box and let cool directly.   It should make 18 – 24 cupcakes.
  2. Top each cupcake with a large marshmallow by connecting the marshmallow and cupcake together using a mini pretzel stick.
  3. Frost the top of the cupcake covering the marshmallow to create height.
  4. We have created three little monster creations from our counters to share at yours;
    1. Add a large melting round to the center of one cupcake.  Use the black gel frosting to add the center of the eye, mouth and eyebrow for your very own Cyclops.
    2. Add mini morsels to the front of the one cupcake to create a monster with many eyes.  Simply us the black gel frosting to add the center of the eyes and eyebrows.
    3. Add two mini pretzel sticks to two mini marshmallows and insert them for an eye-popping affect.  Use the black gel frosting to add the center of the eye to each mini marshmallow and a mouth.

Kids will love picking out their own monster at your Halloween party!

Green Frosting:  You can actually order Price Chopper’s butter cream frosting right at the bakery located in your Price Chopper store.

  1. Ha ha, these are so cool. I will be getting into the halloween spirit this year. It’s not very popular here, but I did get a few trick or treaters drop in, so I’m making in fun for the ones I get this year and am going to be a little more prepared. I will be making some monster cupcakes for sure!

    1. Thank you! We had fun putting them together & look forward to serving them as this year’s classroom treat!
