I am slightly obsessed with owls these days, ever since decorating my baby’s nursery in owl theme. So when planning my annual Halloween party, I decided that I had to have owl cupcakes. Here’s the thing, I don’t bake. (It’s just not pretty.) So I knew I would need a shortcut. My first thought was Hostess Cupcakes!
I had everything planned out perfectly for the party, but don’t you know that when I headed off to the store in search of Hostess Cupcakes (you know, the ones with the white swirl down the middle) the store was out. There was a spot for them, but someone had cleaned them out. Grrrr! So I settled on the next best thing – Ding Dongs!
I am pleased to announce, the result is purely adorable. See for your self!
Want to make these yourself? They are so easy, here’s what you need.
- Hostess Cakes
- M&Ms (brown)
- Candy Corn
Then simply half your Oreos, use the icing as glue and ensemble. That’s my kind of desert.
So, what did my partygoers think of my Halloween Owl Cupcakes?! They were a hit! I was assured that they were as tasty as they were cute. And you know what, I agree - they were yum!
If you are planning a Halloween party, or perhaps just an owl party, I highly recommend adding this simple treat to your menu. They make quite an impact on a desert table plus they are easy and quick, which is the name of the game.
