A Spooktacular recipe for the whole family!

Ingredients:

- 1 bag Milky Way® Brand Fun Size® Bars

- 1 bag M&M’S® Brand Milk Chocolate Candies Pumpkin Patch Mix

- 1 bag M&M’S® Brand Peanut Chocolate Candies Pumpkin Patch Mix

- 1 18.25-ounce chocolate cake mix

- 1 can (16-ounce) vanilla frosting

- Yellow food coloring

- 1 cup dark chocolate frosting

- Black food coloring

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two cupcake pans with paper liners.

Prepare the cake mix according to package instructions and spoon the batter into the prepared pans. Place 1/2 of a Milky Way® in the center of each cupcake.

Bake for approximately 19 to 22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven, transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Tint vanilla frosting bright yellow with food coloring. Tint chocolate frosting black with the food coloring and spoon into a resealable bag.

Spread top of cupcakes with yellow frosting. Roll edges in to the decorating sugar if desired.

Place one or two black M&M’S® Milk Chocolate and M&M’S® Peanut Chocolate Candies on top of each cupcake as the bats’ bodies.

Snip a small corner from the bag with the black frosting. Pipe bat wings on the either side of each M&M’S® and ears on top of each M&M’S®.
