We are putting together skull cupcakes with the NEW Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups Skulls and doing away with the pumpkins this Halloween. These cupcakes are super easy to make using these Fun-Size skulls which are hauntingly delicious with their one-of-kind limited edition bite-sized molded Skull shape. It is the perfect addition to your Halloween party for kids and grown-ups alike!
We are decorating our favorite cupcakes with these Butterfinger bite size skull chocolates. This is a quick and easy party craft because you don’t have to bake the cupcakes if you haven’t got the time.
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.

How to make skull cupcakes
First, download and print the crossbones template on white copy paper.
After printing the template, cover the template with a piece of waxed paper.
Next, slowly melt about 1 cup of chocolate in the microwave.
Fill a pastry bag with the melted chocolate. Cut off the tip of the pastry bag.
Using the template as a guide pipe the chocolate onto the waxed paper.
Allow the crossbones to completely harden. (about 15-30 mins depending on the temperature of your house) Once hardened, place the crossbones on top of a frosted cupcake.
Place a dab of melted chocolate or frosting in the center of the crossbones to attach the Nestlé Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups Skull.
