No-Bake Halloween Owl Cupcakes

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Hostess Cakes for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

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.

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.

Happy Halloween!

    My husband knew how much I loved Twinkies and on a Valentine’s Day he gave me one with a big paper Valentine heart on the top. I went to break it in half to share with him and there inside was a diamond ring. I loved the way he proposed to me with my favorite sweet treat!
