1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt


3/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
7 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1/8 teaspoon green gel food color


1 (12-ounce) package real semi-sweet chocolate chips
12 sugar ice cream cones
12 chocolate wafer cookies
Decorator candy eyes
Assorted candies
Red and black gel icing


Heat oven to 350°F. Place paper baking cups into 12 muffin pan cups; set aside.

Combine all cupcake ingredients in bowl; beat at medium speed well mixed.

Spoon batter evenly into prepared muffin pan cups. Bake 16-18 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from muffin pans to cooling rack; cool completely.

Beat 3/4 cup butter in bowl at medium speed until creamy. Gradually add powdered sugar and 1/8 teaspoon salt alternately with milk and 1 teaspoon vanilla, beating at low speed and scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Stir in corn syrup and food color. Set aside.

Place chocolate chips in bowl; microwave 1 minute or until melted. Brush chocolate onto sugar cones, coating completely. Brush remaining melted chocolate over 1 side of each chocolate wafer cookie; place coated cones on top of cookie, pressing down slightly. Let stand until set.

Frost cupcakes with green frosting, creating mound of frosting in center. Press candy eyes into frosting; press candy into frosting for nose. Use red gel icing to create lips; use black gel icing for hair. Set witch hat on top of frosting, pressing down slightly to secure.
