These cupcakes are very simple, delicious and bring a Halloween festivity whenever they are served!
Print the tombstones on the white cardstock (link in instructions).
Cut out the tombstones and tape a lollipop stick to the back, ensuring when inserted into the cupcake the paper tombstone sits flush with the top of the cupcake.
Frost one cupcake. Place the frosted top of the cupcake in the cookie crumbs. Gently turn the cupcake until the top is covered and no frosting is showing. Repeat with remaining cupcakes one by one.
Insert a tombstone in each cupcake.
With the chopstick make a hole in a desired location of the cupcake top and insert one end of a gummy worm into the hole.
Note on Frosting: A key step with this recipe is frosting each cupcake and dipping it into the cookie crumbs one at a time to allow the ‘dirt’ to adhere to the frosting.
Recipe Time: assumes cupcakes are baked. The prep time includes preparing the tombstone toppers, frosting and assembling the Halloween cupcakes.
