Tombstone Cupcakes

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.

Tombstone Cupcakes

1 recipe of your favorite cupcakes, prepared
1 can of white frosting (with food coloring added to make green or orange)
Oreo cookies
Nutter Butter cookies
Black gel icing
Pumpkin candies

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.
