Fun and Easy Monster Marshmallow Cupcakes Recipe Perfect For Halloween

easy monster marshmallow cupcake recipe for halloween

‘Tis the season for zombies, vampires, googley eyes and lots of sweets, specifically monster marshmallow cupcakes. The countdown to Halloween has started and it’s getting to be crunch time. If you’re still looking for a quick treat to take to a house party or for your kids Halloween party. I have an easy breezy cupcake recipe for you!

This recipe is courtesy of Smart School House and there are more fabulous ideas over at Brit + Co. Although I altered the Monster Marshmallow Cupcake recipe a little bit from the original recipe plus with a 6 year old and an 8 year old as your assistants, nothing goes as planned. Plus I picked up a cupcake kit from Party City that included material to make Bat Cupcakes, so we had a nice mixture of Halloween supplies. We definitely had fun making these monster marshmallow cupcakes!
