Halloween Cupcakes

Halloween cupcakes are an easy class party treat, neighborhood party dessert, or just a fun activity to do with your kids! I have gathered my favorite pumpkin cupcakes, green cupcakes, easy cupcakes, party cupcakes, and witch cupcakes!

The frosting really makes these cupcakes unique, and you can decorate them however you want. You will love these cute treats. If you are not into frosting you can use candied toppings like candy eyes or sprinkles, or even chocolate chips. You can’t go wrong with cupcakes!
