Halloween - a holiday my two nephews just LOVE. Cole is 11 and Leighton is 8, and I bet I could rattle off almost every single one of their Halloween costumes. So cute ... cough ... I mean, HANDSOME! They're getting older now, and don't appreciate being called "cute" as much as I would like.
I love making kid-friendly Halloween treats for them.
I thought for a minute about trying to make these fun Witch Hat Cupcakes together with my nephews. Then, as if in a dream sequence, I had visions of heading into a sugar battle ... the kitchen island our battlefield ... spatulas our weapons of choice ... with cupcake bombs and EXTRA frosting flying in the air ... whoa - shake it off ... back to reality.
I'm sure your children will be VERY well behaved while making these, and won't sneak extra frosting even once. And if they do? Well ... Halloween is a time for tricks, treats and a whole lotta sweets. So embrace the sugar rush because your kids are going to LOVE making these with you.
