Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Split cookies, leaving filling on one side of each cookie. Coarsely chop plain split cookies. Set aside split cookies with filling for garnish.
  • Prepare cake mix as directed on package; gently stir in chopped cookies. Spoon into 24 paper-lined muffin pans.
  • Bake as directed on package. Remove from pans; cool completely on wire racks.
  • Spread cupcakes with frosting. Immediately sprinkle with coconut.
  • Decorate orange filling on split cookies with black decorating gel to resemble pumpkin faces; let dry. Stand 1 pumpkin face on edge in frosting on each cupcake. Top cupcakes with marshmallows.

Serving Suggestion

Enjoy one of these spooky cupcakes with a cold glass of fat-free milk.

Note

For best results, frost cupcakes and sprinkle with coconut, a few at a time, to prevent frosting from hardening and to ensure coconut sticks to frosting.

How to Tint Coconut

Mix 1/2 tsp. water with a few drops of food coloring. Add colored water to coconut in resealable plastic bag. Close bag and shake coconut back and forth until coconut is evenly tinted.

Although I did not use the marshmallows, or coconut; I simply laid the cream half of the cookie on top of the iced cupcake and decorated as a pumpkin. The kids gobbled them up!! The parents and teachers thought it was a great idea!! and congratulated me on my originality!!! Thanks Kraft!!!
