Dirt ‘N’ Worms Halloween Cupcakes

Dirt 'N' Worms Halloween Cupcakes | Cate Renée

With Halloween just around the coming up next weekend I thought I’d get into the baking spirit a little bit earlier and test out these awesome dirt ‘n’ worms cupcakes, topped with crushed Oreo’s and sour gummy worms!

INGREDIENTS

3/4 cup plain flour
1/2 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
80g butter
2 eggs
Oreo cookies
Sour gummy worms
Chocolate Frosting

METHOD

Preheat your oven to 160° Celsius and place the cupcake cases into a 12 hole muffin tray. Next sift all your dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl, and then create a small well in the middle. Add in the remaining wet ingredients and combine using an electric beater, until batter is smooth. Spoon the mixture into your cupcake cases, two tablespoons worked well for me, and place in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Leave to cool on a wire rack completely.

DECORATION

Once cooled completely, spread a small but even amount of any pre-made chocolate frosting and allow to harden slightly. Add on your crushed up Oreo cookies for the “dirt” element and then place your sour gummy worms in the dirt to create to full effect.
