Yes, I know Halloween is still over 2 months away, but Fall is my favorite time of year and knowing that it is just around the corner is so exciting! It's never too early to start planning for Halloween parties and events. These cupcakes are a great, simple treat that are sure to be a hit with kids and adults alike.
1 recipe of your favorite cupcakes, prepared
1 can of white frosting (with food coloring added to make green or orange)
Nutter Butter cookies
Black gel icing
These cupcakes are so easy to decorate. Simply make your favorite cupcake recipe (chocolate works best). Once the cupcakes are completely cooled, frost them with green or orange frosting. Place several Oreo cookies in a food processor and pulse until you have crumbs. Using black gel icing, write R.I.P. on one half of a Nutter Butter cookie to make the tombstone. Push the Nutter Butter into the cupcake. Sprinkle the Oreo crumbs in front of the Nutter Butter to simulate the graveyard dirt. Place a Pumpkin candy on the cupcake.

Several years ago, I worked with a dear older lady who always brought this cake to company potluck dinners. It was so popular that she was expected to bring it every time we had a potluck. After a few years, I finally convinced her to share the recipe and I was amazed at how simple it was to make. She always called it "Tom Selleck Cake" (I guess you can draw your own conclusions as to why she did.) Here at the Inspiration Cafe', we simply call it "Gooey Heath Bar Cake". Hope you enjoy it!
Gooey Heath Bar Cake (a.k.a. Tom Selleck Cake)
1 box German Chocolate cake mix (plus water, eggs, and oil per pkg. directions)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 jar caramel ice cream topping
1 tub whipped topping
3 Heath candy bars, crushed
Bake cake according to package directions. While still warm, poke holes over entire cake with the rounded end of the handle of a wooden or plastic mixing spoon. Pour ice cream topping over cake. Pour sweetened condensed milk over caramel topping. Refrigerate overnight.
Spread whipped topping over cake and scatter crushed Heath bars.
