Our family is big into the holidays, and Halloween is one of our absolute favorites.  We love decorating the house, carving pumpkins and picking out costumes, usually while listening to “Thriller” and “This is Halloween” on a constant loop.  Of course, I especially love making spooky treats that the kids will get excited about.  We love the classic gruesome finger cookies,  witches’ brew cheesy spinach soup, etc. but it’s always fun to try to come up with a new, festive treat for Halloween.  The moment I made these spooky eyeball cupcakes, we were all completely smitten. The effect of the brightly colored eyes peering out of the otherwise black background is striking.  These are a fun and easy cupcake to make and would be a great project to make with older children.  I’m sure we’ll be making these for many years to come.
