Here is an easy Halloween cupcake idea that makes frightfully good Halloween cupcakes.  I hope you will find these candy witch finger cupcakes supper silly and not too gross. If you prefer gross Halloween treats just add a little red piping gel for a bloody touch!
Witch Finger Halloween Cupcakes

How to make easy Halloween Cupcakes

These cupcakes are super simple to make. You will need black jelly beans a bit of frosting and  a bag of marshmallow circus peanuts (I found these at Wal-mart).

Cut the jelly bean, not quite in half.

Attach the jelly bean to the circus peanut with a dab of frosting and you have a candy witch finger.

Bake up or buy some yummy cupcakes and put your witch fingers on top. These cute chevron cupcake papers are from Sweet!

If you are looking for more cupcake ideas, these Halloween cupcakes are great!
