    Almost too cute to eat - ALMOST!

    Acsa Buening from Hartland, WI

    I recruited the engineer hubby to pipe in the "concentric" circles, and the kids to place the candies on top, and it turned into a family affair! Brought them to my Jazzercise Halloween class and it was a hit, both in taste and in looks!

    Fun to make

    Frances Puente from FL

    my kids loved the design, it was very easy and fun to make. Instead of Goobers I use spider rings.

    love it

    laura Bucalo from commerce mi

    love the idea of putting butterfinger pieces in a cupcake, YUM! I like the cobwebs better though, if you use chocolate to frost, and melted white baking chocolate for the web!

    Fun!

    Angela Petrosky from Monroe, NC

    My 14 year old SON and I made these cup cakes together. Since he doesn't like Butterfingers or Goobers, we substituted them with Nestle semi-sweet chocolate chips and some Buncha Crunch. We had so much fun making them and they looked so "cool"!

    Grandchildren Loved Them

    Sherry Duncan from Butler, PA

    I have 2 grandchildren, one is 2 1/2 and the other is 8. They always come to grandma's for Halloween goodies,and I made theese cupcakes for them, and they were so excited! The 8 year old said it was too nice to eat and ruin them, but that lasted about 3 minnutes until her sister ate hers and the 8 year old tasted it. It was requested that I make them again next year1

    Scarey but Delicious

    Judith Legendre from Westport, MA

    I found that they where fun to make and that you can use your imagination to make others like monsters and pumpkins, as well as diffrent colored spiders. It was great for a rainey night at home with friends.

    Cobweb cuties

    Vicki Ott from Edinburgh, IN

    I love the added butterfinger bars to this. It takes no time at all to draw the circle on the cupcakes, but draw your lines to make the web immediately. We waited until done and the frosting was set up and hard to draw the toothpick through.

    Great Cupcakes!

    Dawn Fino from Milford, CT

    I made these cupcakes for my Sunday School class. They absolutely loved them! The Butterfingers add an extra richness to the cupcakes. I couldn't find Butterfinger BBs though, so I used chocolate-covered caramels instead.

    INEZ LOPEZ from DALLAS, TX

    This recipe was great and fun to do with my five children. Everyone was excited to try and make the web and spider. We used whoppers instead of the butterfinger bbs. Thank you for the great ideas and recipes.

    Scary - Good!

    Kelly Mueller from EAST NORTHPORT, NY

    I made these for my kid's preschool halloween parade/party. They were a hit!!! Many of the parents did not believe they were homemade. I actually made the cupcakes 4 days ahead and froze them. I took them out the night before and frosted them. The fact that the cupcakes were frozen made the chocolate set up quickly but they were yummy. Not 1 was left over.

    A hit for halloween

    Dawn Hughes from COMMERCE TOWNSHIP, MI

    I made these with a slight modification - I added 1 Tbl of pudding to the middle of the cupcakes before baking. I heard more than once that these were the best cupcakes that anyone had ever tasted. The spiders on the top turned out just like the picture and so easy to make.
