There are few things I love more than baking for holidays.  Easter, Christmas, 4th of July, Halloween… I have so much fun preparing fun + festive treats! 🙂 Though I enjoy baking, I’m no pro + LOVE semi-homemade recipes. This past weekend, I made the cutest + tastiest salted caramel chocolate Halloween cupcakes!


These could not have been easier to make! Take a look –>

  1. Gather ingredients:
Salted caramel frosting, dark chocolate cake mix, fun cupcake liners, pumpkin candy corn, black icing, and caramel Milano cookies
Salted caramel frosting, dark chocolate cake mix, fun cupcake liners, pumpkin shaped candy corn, black icing, and Dulce de Leche Milano cookies

2. Prepare cupcake mix according to box, and bake


3. Squeeze black icing into a plastic bag, cut a small hole in the corner, and use it to pipe “RIP” onto the Milano cookiesIMG_2645

Pop these into the fridge while the cupcakes cool!

4. Now the fun, and decorate!




Tell me these are not THE cutest Halloween desserts! Since I’m not much of a haunted house, hay ride, or scary movie girl — spooky + delicious treats are a sure fire way to get me into the Halloween spirit.  Now to figure out a costume — ugh!

Are you making any fun Halloween-inspired recipes this week? Leave me a link to them below!

    • Thanks, girl! I wish I had the skills, time, and patience to make everything from scratch! Usually around Christmas time I’ll try some more elaborate recipes, but for the day-to-day…semi-homemade is the best! haha

  1. Okay…these are ADORABLE!! We have a Halloween potluck on Friday at work and I’ve just spent an hour on Pinterest trying to find a themed recipe I wanted to make, but none of them stuck out to me. And then I saw this. Definitely making this tomorrow night! 😀 Thank you for sharing!!

    • Aww yay!! I’m so glad I could help — it was honestly the easiest thing! You could literally use any cupcake/icing combo – the Milanos really make it! 🙂 Good luck!! XOXO
