Last year, I realized I had committed to bring more than 150 treats to various Halloween get-togethers. I had some Graveyard Brownies and Spritz Cookies ready to go, but that only got me to about 120. So the night before Halloween I pulled a semi-homemade fast one (that means get out the cake mix, friends) and threw together these candy corn cupcakes in 40 minutes flat. On Halloween morning I piped on some pre-made vanilla frosting (thank you Betty Crocker) and topped each with a candy corn. I found the cute spider web wrappers at Wal-mart for $1.99.
The addition of the yogurt and almond extract makes these cupcakes taste almost homemade. I was embarassed to give out the recipe at a school halloween party, but people really liked them! I figured I can’t be the only procrastinator out there…so if you’re up a crick and need something quick, here’s a semi-homemade lifesaver!
