Halloween Treats - Super Easy

Although not Star Wars, I wanted to share some easy cupcakes for Halloween.

These are box mix cupcakes, iced with orange-tinted buttercream.  The spiders are chocolate-covered cookies.  (I think I used Snackwells.)  Add small fondant eyes.  The eyeballs are candy balls (round sprinkles).  The legs are small pieces of  black licorice - see if you can find whip licorice.  You could also use pretzel sticks in a pinch.  Pipe a small red smile on each spider, using red tube icing and a No. 2 Wilton tip.
