Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Prepare cake batter and bake as directed on package for 24 cupcakes; cool completely.
  • Spoon 1/3 cup COOL WHIP into large resealable plastic bag. Add marshmallows; seal bag. Shake until marshmallows are evenly coated. Place decorating sugar in small bowl. Add marshmallows, 1 at a time; toss until evenly coated with sugar. Place in single layer on baking sheet. Decorate with decorating gel to resemble monster faces as shown in photo.
  • Beat pudding mix and milk in medium bowl with whisk 2 min. Stir in remaining COOL WHIP. Spoon 1-1/2 cups pudding mixture into small bowl. Add food coloring; stir until blended. Spoon into small resealable plastic bag. Snip one corner off bottom of bag.
  • Cut 1-inch piece from top of each cupcake with small knife; remove and reserve for snacking or other use. Pipe pudding mixture from bag into holes in cupcakes; spread remaining pudding mixture onto tops of cupcakes. Top with marshmallows.

Fun Idea

For more colorful cupcakes, add 1 or 2 drops each yellow and red food colorings to the remaining (plain) pudding mixture to tint it orange before piping into and spreading onto tops of filled cupcakes.

Variation

Omit black decorating gel. Prepare and frost cupcakes as directed. Cut black licorice into small pieces. Use to make monster faces on the coated marshmallows before placing on tops of frosted cupcakes.

How to Store

Keep frosted cupcakes refrigerated.

    I made these for a treat before Halloween. They were delicous and fun to make, but I only gave them 4 stars because I feel there's an error in the recipe. In order to cover all the marshmallows, I had to use 1/2 c. of decorating sugar. So, if you'd like to make these, be prepared! Otherwise, the recipe was great!

    These were exactly what i was looking for. They made quite a show but weren't overly sweet. My 5 yr old rolled the marshmellows in the green suger. They were a hit at the Halloween party.
