7 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup milk

How to make

  1. STEP 1

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

  2. STEP 2

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

  3. STEP 3

    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.

  4. STEP 4

    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.

  5. STEP 5

    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.

  6. STEP 6

    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.
