Serve up these spooky cupcakes at your Halloween party!

We are decorating our favorite cupcakes with these Butterfinger bite size skull chocolates. This is a quick and easy party craft because you don’t have to bake the cupcakes if you haven’t got the time.

I love their spooky Skull mold. It’s not too spooky though!  They have taken the classic Butterfinger crispety, crunchety, peanut-buttery flavor drenched in a smooth milk chocolate coating, making them the perfect Halloween treat or baking accessory this Halloween season. The possibilites are endless for making Halloween treats.
