Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this for my halloween party this year and it's really easy to make. I made this for my halloween party this year and it's really easy to make. I used brownie mix to make the cupcakes and used about 2 containers of icing for about 16-18 cupcakes. I used chocolate sprinkles for the eyes and mouth. It came out so cute and everyone loved it so much they hated to take a cupcake & mess up the ghost!!
