Butterfinger Skull Cupcakes for Halloween

Posted by  ·  October 17, 2017  ·  Last Updated: September 28, 2018

We are putting away the pumpkins this Halloween and making skull cupcakes with the NEW Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups Skulls. These Fun-Size skulls are hauntingly delicious with their one-of-kind limited edition bite-sized molded Skull shape. I think they are super cool and made these skull cupcakes super easy to make!

I love their spooky Skull mold. It’s not too spooky though!  They have taken the classic Butterfinger crispety, crunchety, peanut-buttery flavor drenched in a smooth milk chocolate coating, making them the perfect Halloween treat or baking accessory this Halloween season. The possibilites are endless for making Halloween treats. Check out these clever skeleton cookies using the skulls.
