Thank you for reviewing this recipe.


Almost too cute to eat - ALMOST!

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

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

love it

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!
