Graveyard Cupcakes

Servings 24 cupcakes


  • 1 chocolate cake mix plus ingredients to prepare
  • 24 cupcake liners Halloween colors
  • 1 package Oreo cookies
  • 1 package Keebler Vienna Fingers cookies
  • 1 package Brach's Mellowcreme Pumpkins
  • 1 can chocolate frosting
  • 1 sandwich Ziploc bag


  • Bake cupcakes according to package directions. Remove from cupcake tins and place on a wire rack to cool.
  • Remove the cream from one row of Oreo cookies. Place cookies in a food chopper and pulse till finely chopped into crumbs. You can also put them in a plastic bag and smash them. Set crumbs aside.
  • Remove cream from at least six Vienna Fingers (depending on how good you are at breaking them in half). Break cookies in half to make 24 headstones. Set on a plate or piece of wax paper.
  • Place 2 spoonfuls of chocolate frosting in the Ziploc bag. Cut a tiny hole at the end and squeeze frosting down toward it. Pipe the letters RIP on the front of each cookie headstone.
  • Frost each cupcake with chocolate frosting using a butter knife. Press a cookie headstone into each cupcake and sprinkle with Oreo cookie crumbs to form a grave. Or sprinkle all over with Oreo cookie crumbs, depending on the look you want.
  • Press a Mellowcreme Pumpkin onto each cupcake next to the headstone. Serve and enjoy!
