Prep Time: 20 Min Total TIME: 20 MIN
15.5 ounces Boxed Chocolate Cake Mix 3.4 ounces Box Instant Chocolate Pudding Mix 3/4 cup Sour Cream 3/4 cup Vegetable oil 3 Eggs 7 ounces Marshmallow Fluff 2 tablespoons Butter, melted Green Food Coloring 16 ounces Chocolate Frosting 2 cups Oreo cookies, crushed 2 cups Green Candy Melts, melted 20 Marshmallow Ghosts
Preheat oven. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl combine boxed cake mix, chocolate pudding mix, sour cream, vegetable oil, and eggs.
Fill pan. Pour the chocolate cupcake batter into the cupcake liners filling about 2/3 full. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes until you can insert a toothpick and it comes out clean. Remove cupcakes from oven and let them cool completely.
Make goo. Make the ghost goo filling by mixing the melted butter and marshmallow fluff together. Add green food coloring until you reach the desired color.
Cut cap. Cut a small hole out of the center of each cupcake making sure not to go through to the bottom. Save the core that you remove and cut off a portion, leaving the top to act as a flat “cap” in the next step.
Fill center. Fill the hole with the green marshmallow cream and place the cap you created on top of the cupcake.
Frost cupcakes. Frost each filled cupcake and then turn them upside down and dip them in the crushed cookies.
Dip ghosts. Melt the green candy melts and dip the ghosts in the melts about halfway. Press the ghost on top of the cupcake.
Enjoy! Kids and adults alike will LOVE these deliciously spooky cupcakes.
