Delicious and chocolatey. These Halloween cupcakes are topped with an Oreo frosting. They are easy to make and can even be a fun project to do for Halloween.

Every holiday I love to make special treats for my family. One thing they always love is spooky treats around Halloween. This year we are going to add a twist with the Oreo frosting.

Then after Halloween is over, you can use this recipe for Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, 4th of July, Memorial Day, Veterans Day, Valentines Day or even birthdays.

You can add gel food coloring to change the color of your Oreo Creme. It's so versatile.

The best part about this recipe is that uses a boxed cake mix.
