Cheap and Cheerful Cooking: 1, 2, 3 cupcakes ... Ah, Ah, Ah!

Let the Count count your cupcakes. These are so cute that they will disappear quickly; you may not have any left to count by the end of the party! This Betty Crocker recipe isn't from scratch so you can save time and money, too. I love counting my change as I enjoy my cupcake.


1 box (18.25 oz) Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® cake mix (any flavor)
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
6 drops red food color
6 drops blue food color
1 container (1 lb) Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting
3/4 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
3 tablespoons candy-coated milk chocolate candies (48 candies)
1/3 cup red candy-coated licorice candies (72 candies)
2 tablespoons white vanilla baking chips (48 chips)

1.Heat oven to 350°F. Place paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups.
2.Make and bake cake mix as directed on box for cupcakes, using water, oil and eggs. Cool in pan 10 minutes; remove from pan to cooking rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
3.Stir food colors into frosting. Frost cupcakes.
4.To decorate each cupcake, sprinkle miniature chocolate chips along top for hair; use 2 candy-coated candies for eyes, 3 licorice candies for nose and mouth and 2 white baking chips for fangs.

Count. Distribute. Enjoy.
