Scary Spider Halloween Cupcakes

My daughter and I made these this week for her school class Halloween party and they were a hit!

24 chocolate cupcakes
Chocolate sprinkles
Candy Corns
White chocolate chips
Red or black rope licorice, trimmed to about 2"

Chocolate Buttercream Frosting(click to see original post)

1/2 c. softened butter 
3-4 c. powdered sugar 
1/2 c. cocoa powder
1/4 cup evaporated milk
2 tsp. vanilla 

Cream butter with mixer. Beat in milk, vanilla, cocoa powder and 3 cups powdered sugar. Add powdered sugar until you reach your desired consistency.

To make spider cupcakes, frost individually, then immediately dunk top of frosted cupcake into a small bowl of chocolate sprinkles. Squirt a small dot of frosting, then place white chocolate chips for eyes and candy corn for fangs. Use a toothpick to poke holes for spider legs, then insert 4 licorice pieces into each side of the cupcake. Place a small dot of frosting on the very tip of the white chocolate chips to finish the eyes. Enjoy and Happy Halloween!!!
