Foodie Friday: Graveyard Cupcakes

As I have mentioned here before, I love, love Halloween! It's definitely in my top three holidays. Combine that with my love of being creative and cooking and it's the ultimate for holiday fun in the kitchen. So the next few foodie fridays are going to be some fun things that I made last year around this time.

First up: Graveyard Cupcakes! I can't remember where I found these, but this is a pretty popular idea adapted from the idea of a dirt cake.

You will need:
Cake Mix (eggs & oil)
Cupcake liners
Chocolate Frosting
Chocolate Milanos
White Fondant Icing
Green Fondant Icing
1. Make the cupcakes per the directions on the box (feel free to make homemade cupcakes- I was short on time, but I did add Reese's baking chips to liven things up a bit).
2. Ice with chocolate icing.
3. Put oreos in a gallon ziplock baggie and crush with a rolling pin.
4. Pour in a plate and dip tops of cupcakes in crushed oreo.
5. Ice cookies with RIP along the top and grass about halfway up.
6. Poke cookies down into cupcakes until they hit the bottom.
7. Take cupcakes to party and later start food fight with the asshole who goes in and starts removing and eating all the cookies (I made him eat all the cupcakes that he de-tombstoned).
