Pumpkin Spice Pudding Halloween Cupcakes

Halloween is on the way!  If a full moon is out on Halloween night, it’s makes for an adventuresome, spooky evening.

Everybody loves a black cat.  If you can’t find a black cat, use spiders, witch’s hats, or bats for cupcake toppers.  If you want the same cat topper, go to BakeItPretty.com to purchase Halloween black cat toppers.

Start looking & stocking up on the Pumpkin Spice Pudding mix when it hits the store shelves.  They will sell out fast.  Jell-O Instant Pumpkin Spice Pudding & Pie Filling is what you will be looking for.  It tastes so good…you may want to make them for Thanksgiving.

Remember you are using the dry pudding mix in the cupcakes.  Don’t prepare the pudding according to package directions before adding to your cupcake recipe.

If you don’t want to use candy melt as frosting & dazzle it up with dark sprinkles……….you could use a cream cheese frosting to frost your 24 cupcakes.  Then add the moon & cat picks on top.  Also, generously sprinkle some dark-colored sprinkles on top of the cream cheese frosting.

These Pumpkin Spice Pudding Halloween Cupcakes are so good you're going to want to make them for other occasions other than a Halloween Party.

The moon picks were started by drawing a circle on parchment paper….Sheryl used a cookie cutter to make the circles.  To make the yellow moon adhere to the lollipop stick just had more melted yellow candy on top to seal.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 – 3.4 ounce pumpkin spice pudding mix
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • Optional: black and yellow candy melts, sprinkles, small lollipop sticks cupcake picks

Instructions

For the Cupcakes:
    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. Line 24 cupcake wells with cupcake liners and set aside.
    3. In a mixing bowl add the flour, baking powder, sugar and pudding mix.
    4. Whisk together.
    5. Add the oil, eggs and cider.

    7. Fill cupcake liners 3/4 full.
    8. Bake 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
    9. Cool on wire rack.
For the Moons:
    1. Measure your pick to determine how big your moon should be. I used a biscuit cutter.
    2. Trace circles on a piece of parchment paper.
    3. Turn over and tape to a cookie sheet.
    4. Melt yellow candy melts. Either put the melted candy in a squirt bottle on a zip top bag with the corner cut off.
    5. Trace around the line first and then fill in. ( to help cover the unevenness of the candy I added yellow sugar sprinkles.
    6. Put in freezer for 10 minutes.
    7. Once the moons are hard shake off any excess sugar sprinkles.
    8. Place back on the covered cookie sheet.
    9. Turn the moons over.
    10. Dip small lollipop sticks in more yellow melted candy and lay in the center on the back side of the moon.
    11. Put back in freezer for 10 minutes.
Finished Cupcakes:
  1. Melt black candy melts.
  2. Dip cooled cupcakes in the melted candy and then directly into the colored sugar sprinkles.
  3. Immediately add the moon and then the cat pick.
