Creepy, Crawly, Dirt(y) Cupcakes

Just in time for Halloween! 

A blog friend of mine came up with the idea for a “Boo Bakeoff.” Essentially, you bake some Halloween-related cupcakes, blog about it, and then you’re entered to win the book “What’s New, Cupcake.” I’ve had my eye on that book, so I decided to enter. These are my Creepy, Crawly, Dirt(y) Cupcakes! 

Making them was a piece of…well…cake! Get your favorite chocolate cake and chocolate frosting recipe and make regular cupcakes. Then, take some Oreos and smash and crash them until they’re like the consistency of dirt. Put the Oreos in a bowl and dip the cupcakes—frosting side down—into the Oreos, covering the top with the “dirt.” Get some gummy worms and stick them in the cupcake!


  1. These look really delicious, really easy, and REALLY COOL! I need to make these for some occasion involving kids 🙂

  2. Very cute!

    At this point, you'll probably win…due to the fact that you're the only entry! That'll teach me to hold a last minute contest!
