  • Hands-On Time:
  • Total Time:
  • Servings: Makes 48 mini cupcakes
  • Rating:


  • 1 box (18.25 ounces) Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Strawberry Supreme Cake Mix
  • 1 can Creamy Home-Style Classic Vanilla Frosting
  • Red paste food coloring
  • 48 thin chocolate cookie crisps (100 calorie Oreo Crisps)
  • 12 spearmint leaves
  • 12 wheat sticks or thin pretzels (Pringles)
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds

Baking Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line 48 mini muffin cups with red mini foil liners. Prepare the cake mix according to package directions.
  2. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans. Bake until cupcakes are lightly golden and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 8 to 12 minutes. Transfer the cupcakes to a wire rack and cool completely.
  3. Tint the vanilla frosting red with the red paste food coloring.
  4. Spread a small dot of red frosting on top of the cupcakes and press a thin chocolate cookie, allowing cookie to overhang cupcake slightly at a point. Spread some of the remaining red frosting on top of the cookie and cupcake to mound slightly and make smooth. Sprinkle the top with the sesame seeds. Repeat with the remaining cupcakes and frosting.
  5. Roll out the spearmint leaves in the sugar making sure to keep them covered with sugar to prevent sticking. Cut out green tops of strawberries using the template and some scissors. Cut the wheat sticks into 1 1/2 inch long pieces. Poke a hole in the center of the green top and insert the wheat stick. Press the other end of the wheat stick into the wide end of the top of the cupcake to finish the strawberry. Repeat with the remaining cupcakes.

Whole Wheat Cookies

Whole Wheat  Cookies

I have found out that cookies made with all-purpose flour can also be made with whole wheat flour. Just use the same amount of whole wheat flour for the amount of all-purpose flour called for in the recipe. I've done it with chocolate chip cookies and oatmeal cookies and no one noticed the difference.

Brain Cupcakes

Brain Cupcakes

Make these clever cupcakes for all of your little zombies using Wilton piping tip #10 and Duncan Hines Triple Chocolate cupcake mix. After baking the cupcakes according to the directions on the box, begin by piping two half circles across the top of each cupcake. Then, fill in each half circle individually by piping a zig-zagged line.
