|Recipe and photo by Family Features|
- 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
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®.
