Frankenstein Halloween Cupcakes

While watching The Addams Family with my littles this past week, I knew I had to make Frankenstein cupcakes as a pre-Halloween treat. They turned out exactly how I envisioned and the kids were ecstatic to eat them!

I used a boxed chocolate cake mix and filled them with green vanilla pudding. I topped them with green buttercream frosting, chocolate sprinkles, two candy eyes and used chocolate covered jelly beans for the neck bolts. They are just too cute for words.

I hope you have some Halloween fun while making these!
